Now that you’ve activated WooCommerce Wholesale Prices, you can use it to add wholesale pricing to your products on your WooCommerce store.
You can accomplish this in two easy steps:
Step 1: Navigate to a product
In your WordPress dashboard, head to Products. You can either edit one of your existing products by clicking on its name on the right, or you can create a new product by clicking Add New.
At any rate, you’ll be taken to the product edit screen.
Step 2: Edit the product’s pricing details
As you can see, the product edit screen now features new input boxes for wholesale prices.
Now, in addition to the regular price and sale price, you can give your product a wholesale price and wholesale sale price. You can even choose between a fixed discount and a percentage discount for your product.
Enter the wholesale price you would like for your product. Remember, only your wholesale customers can see this wholesale pricing in WooCommerce. In contrast, your regular retail buyers are only privy to your regular pricing.

How To See What Wholesale Pricing In WooCommerce Looks Like For Customers
To check out what your wholesale customers will see when they’re browsing your product catalog, you’ll need to access your website as a customer.
We recommend setting up a test user account for yourself. This will allow you to log into your own store as a wholesale customer.
Step 1: Create a test user
To create a test user, go to Users > Add New. Then, fill in the text fields to create a new user.
Step 2: Choose a user role
Now, you’ll have to pick a role for your test user.
Scroll down the page, click the Role dropdown menu, then select “Wholesale Customer.” This means that whenever you log into your website as this test user, you’ll see the products’ wholesale prices like a wholesale customer would.
Take note: you need to apply this same “Wholesale Customer” user role to all customers whom you’d like to have access to your products’ wholesale rates.
Don’t forget to click the Add New User button when you’re done creating your test user!
