Wholesale settings

You can change your wholesale store settings on the Preferences, Accounts, Navigation, Appearance, and Notifications pages in the wholesale channel.

Shopify Plus

The Wholesale ecommerce channel is available to Shopify Plus plans only.

Preference settings

You can change the following settings for your wholesale store in the Preferences page in the wholesale channel:

  • the email address where wholesale order notifications and customer inquiries are sent
  • whether retail prices are shown as comparison prices in the wholesale store
  • whether there is a minimum order amount that all customers must spend in their wholesale orders. (You can also set minimum order amounts that override this setting for individual customers (to learn more, see Set minimum purchase amounts for wholesale orders)
  • whether customers can submit draft orders for products that are out-of-stock (to learn more, see Ordering out-of-stock products)

Appearance settings

You can change the following settings that affect the look of your wholesale store in the Appearance page:

  • the logo that appears in the header
  • the accent color
  • the background image that appears on the sign in and password reset pages

You can change the following settings for your wholesale store in the Navigation page:

  • whether customers can filter your products by vendor or product type
  • whether customers can browse items by collection in the wholesale store
  • how the products are ordered on a page (for example, your products can be sorted by the date that they were added to Shopify)
  • what products are featured on the home page of the wholesale store

Notification settings

You can change the following settings that affect the notifications that are sent to your wholesale customers in the Notification page:

  • whether customers receive confirmation when they submit a draft order
  • whether customers receive a notification when their draft order is updated or canceled

Wholesale customer account settings

You can change the following settings for a wholesale customer in their accounts page:

  • whether there is a minimum order amount that the buyer must spend in their wholesale orders (this amount will override the setting for your store that you set in the Preferences page)
  • whether the buyer can pay for orders in the wholesale store as opposed to submitting orders for approval (and whether there is a limit to the order amount that they can pay for at the checkout)

You can also look up customer's wholesale prices in their account page.

Other settings

Other settings, such as currency, are controlled by the settings that you specified in the Settings page in your Shopify admin. Learn more about these initial setup settings.
