Import wholesale customers

You can use the Customer CSV template to import a list of customers along with their price list tags into your Shopify admin. After the import, you can invite them to create their wholesale store accounts from the Accounts page in wholesale.

Shopify Plus

The wholesale channel is available to Shopify Plus plans only.

It is faster to add tags to your customers in the CSV file before you import than it is afterwards. For example, if you know the price list tag that you want to assign to these customers, then add this tag to your customers in the CSV file.
