Seeking Shopify Solutions for a Planned Corporate Fund Management Feature

Hi Shopify Community,

I'm part of a team currently developing a platform designed to serve employees of various organizations. We are in the process of building a Shopify store and are looking to integrate a feature that allows businesses to manage a fund for their employees. Here's the concept we're working on:

The idea is to provide a service where company employees can utilize offerings directly at their workplace. The goal is to enable businesses to set up an account on our yet-to-be-launched store, where they can deposit funds for their employees' use. Whenever an employee uses the service, a predetermined amount would be automatically deducted from this fund and their total bill.

I'm reaching out to the community with a few questions:

  1. Are there any Shopify apps or integrations available that can support this type of functionality for a platform in development?
  2. What would be the best approach to implementing such a system in Shopify? Is it feasible with existing apps, or would custom development be necessary?
  3. Has anyone worked on or know of similar systems, or can you recommend a Shopify expert or developer who could assist us in this project?

Any advice, suggestions, or referrals you could provide would be invaluable as we work to bring this concept to fruition.

Thank you for any assistance you can offer!

Best regards,
Miki

Hi @mikiblue This is an employee store with giftcards/subscriptions/invoices, or using B2B,  with extra steps.

 

Shopify it not natively built for concept models like this, you will be constantly figuring out workarounds while learning the platform to shoehorn it to fit the concept.

B2B is only for shopify-Plus enterprise plans.

 

Also see team/school purchase style of store setups and or groupbuys, and or marketplace setups. Or tangentially developing a sales-channel.

 

Most of that stuff ends up being custom builds where no one has time to document or publicize such builds publicly in a digestible or findable approach.

 

 

If you need discovery or POC services then contact me by email  contact info in forum signature.
ALWAYS please provide context, examples: store url, theme name, post url(s) , or any further detail in ALL correspondence.

thank you very much for your clear and detailled reply, appreciated.

I will contact you by email but I am sure I won't be able to figure out your e-mail address.
