Shopify is a great eCommerce platform—if you’re selling straightforward products at straightforward prices, then it works beautifully out of the box. But it does get a little bit more complex if you want to use Shopify to sell wholesale/B2B. It can be done, but it needs a bit of thought (and probably an app or two…)
The first solution to consider is that, although primarily geared towards B2C sites, Shopify does have a wholesale channel … if you’re on Shopify Plus. The monthly fee for Plus won’t suit everyone, but within that the Wholesale channel gives you a separate, password- protected store that runs from the same admin as your B2C site.
The Wholesale channel offers the pricing options you’d expect, so volume-based pricing and different pricing for different customer groups is available. Wholesale customers can also directly create purchase orders. If this option could work for you, Shopify has more information available.
