I'm relatively new to the e-commerce space and am assisting a family member in setting up their online B2B wholesale store. Their business involves daily food deliveries by approximately 10 drivers.
I've been exploring the Shopify app store for solutions. Currently, I'm leaning towards "Wholesale Gorilla" for managing wholesale pricing as customers price lists vary and "Easy Routes" for delivery route mapping and proof of delivery.
However, I've encountered two challenges:
Standing Orders: Many customers require regular deliveries, say every other week. I'd prefer a system where they don't need to place an order every single time. Is there a way or an app to set up such recurring orders?
Invoicing: The current model is daily deliveries with weekly invoicing. If customers receive deliveries multiple times a week, how can I ensure they're invoiced for the cumulative total at week's end?
I'd greatly appreciate any insights or recommendations on how to address these issues.
