If you followed our previous guide on how to calculate wholesale price from retail price you should now be ready to setup your wholesale pricing in WooCommerce.
To do this easily, download our free WooCommerce Wholesale Prices plugin which will add this functionality to your WooCommerce store.
Download Free Plugin
To install the plugin via the WordPress dashboard just use the following steps:
- Login to WordPress
- Navigate to Plugins->Add New
- In the search box, just type “WooCommerce Wholesale Prices”
- Look for our plugin and click on the Install Now button
- Activate the plugin when prompted
Adding Wholesale Pricing in WooCommerce Products
Once you have installed and activated the plugin you will now see new input boxes for the wholesale prices on the edit screen for your products.
Enter the price you would like to have for your product and this will be the price that only wholesale customers can see.
Activate Wholesale Permissions For Customers
The next step is to activate the wholesale permissions for your customers.
We recommend setting up a test user account for yourself so you can see what it looks like when logged in as a wholesale customer.
Go to Users->Add New and add a test user.
As part of this process, you will also have to choose a user role.
Ensure your user has the “Wholesale Customer” role and this will mean that when logged in with that user you can see the wholesale prices as a wholesale customer would.
You need to apply this same user role to any of your customers that you would like to give wholesale rates to.
Conclusion & How To Get More Wholesale Features
As far as providing simple wholesale pricing for specific customers, that’s as far as you need to go.
But if you want to get more advanced, like adding multiple tiers of wholesale pricing or using percentages to define pricing instead of editing each product, then the WooCommerce Wholesale Prices Premium plugin might be for you.
The free plugin provides the basic features as you’ve seen but for more advanced control and to start making a more sophisticated wholesale portal for your customers, you might want to check it out.
