Import wholesale customers

You can use the Customer CSV template to import customers into your Shopify admin and to assign them to price lists. After the import, you can create their wholesale accounts from the Accounts page in the Wholesale channel.

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.
