    Great article! Thanks for all the info 🙂 I wonder if you could answer a question for me… I would like to add a wholesale section to my website in the most easiest way possible whcih I think is by using dynamic pricing. I will however be offering free shipping on orders over £10 retail but £100 wholesale… this will be set on woocommerce and there will be notices on the site but then my wholesale customers would see the same thing. Is there a way to change this? Thanks

    Hi, congratulations for the article!
    I would like to inform you about this plugin, it is really complete and it seems to me an excellent solution to use WooCommerce as B2B for wholesale. What do you think about?

    Hi,
    I am wondering if you could elaborate a little bit more on the logistics of option 1?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jesse, you can implement option 1 by installing the WooCommerce Protected Categories plugin and either password protect your wholesale categories, or restrict them so that only logged in users with a wholesale role can see them. You would then use the free Duplicate Post plugin to clone your public products and add them to the hidden wholesale category. That way, you can add different prices for the wholesale version of each product, and your public users will never see the hidden wholesale version or its pricing.

    Dear Woocommerce,

    I need your suggestion for my e-commerce project. I am looking for reseller options with reseller login.
    Reseller: who can share my product in social media get margin in every sale.

    For example:-
    Shop101 App
    Woplr App
    Meeaho App etc.

      Hi Deepak, you can use the official Product Vendors plugin from woocommerce.com for this. If you want to protect each reseller’s products so that only specific people can access them, then you can use the WooCommerce Protected Categories plugin discussed in this article to protect the product category pages for each vendor.

    Hey Katie,

    Would you also be able to recommend a protocol/setup for small shops which doesn’t include plugins that need to be purchased?

    Cheers
    Alex

      Hi Alex, it depends on which of the wholesale features mentioned in this article you need.

      There are free plugins that allow you to create dynamic discounts. The main one seems to be https://wordpress.org/plugins/yith-woocommerce-dynamic-pricing-and-discounts but the reviews aren’t great, so it would be better to pay for the official Dynamic Pricing plugin.

      The User Role Editor plugin which I recommended for creating a wholesale user role is free.

      There are also free contact form plugins that you could use for the wholesale user registration, such as Contact Form 7. Gravity Forms is the only one I’m aware of that lets you actually create a user based on a form submission, and that is only available as a premium plugin.

      I’m not aware of free plugins to restrict access to the wholesale area, so you would need the plugins recommended in this article for that.

      I hope this helps!
