Hi everyone,

 

I'm just tapping into wholesale part of the business and I wanted to ask users a bit, what is the best solution for you people. Password protected pages (what apps do you use) or wholesale apps (again, which ones do you use)?

What's the smoothest option for you guys, to start with, without too much hassle?

There are so many possible answers to this. I personally for the ease of it always recommend the Wholesale channel within shopify since it's usually free depending on what plan you have and comes standard with easy features to make this work for your business. However, it doesn't always work for everyone. I'd be happy to talk more about this with you and find a solution that works for you and your needs. Feel free to reach out directly!

Sounds good!

If you don’t mind me asking, what type of business is it that you want to set up wholesale channel sales through?

I sell accessories/ jewelry, few are repeatable collections and then there are also one of a kind pieces that I would upload only for wholesale customers.

wholesale gorilla, i was one of their first users, and with the exception of a few minor things, it simply does the trick.

Hi there,

Wholesale Bear kinda does both.

I mean - you can set specific pricing rules based on different customer groups.

You've also mentioned custom products that should only show for a specific group of customers.

In that case, you can hide these products from any online sales channel (through your Shopify admin > products > product page > manage sales and channels) but still include them inside your wholesale offers.

Wholesale Bear supports hidden products, and will show them inside your wholesale products list.

The app includes the following features:

  • Wholesale pricing based on customers tags
  • Net terms orders
  • Custom shipping rates
  • Discount rounding
  • Target specific countries
  • Pricing time limits
  • Tax exempt
  • Analytics
  • Themes 2.0 compatible!

 

Two side notes:

* It's the only app that I'm familiar with that does NOT need a tech integration and works with a single click. It does not inject ANY theme code as well.

* We're giving away 1000 free for life licenses to celebrate our launch month.

 

Lynda.
