How to add wholesale features in WooCommerce
By default, WooCommerce does not allow you to set up different pricing options based on quantity or customer type.
So, that’s why I will be using the most popular wholesale plugin for WooCommerce called WooCommerce Wholesale Suite, it allows you to add all the wholesale features in your WooCommerce store.
So, click the link below to buy the WooCommerce Wholesale Suite plugin and get the maximum discount possible:
Step- 1. Install and activate the plugin
The first step is to install and activate your WooCommerce Wholesale Suite plugin.
To install the plugin, simply go to Plugins > Add New and search for ‘WooCommerce Wholesale Suite’ and then install and activate the plugin.
If you purchased their paid plan, one more additional step you need to follow, which is to activate your premium version.
To activate your premium license, click on Settings > WWS License and paste your copied (which you get on their site after purchasing the plugin) license key.
Now you have successfully installed and activated the WooCommerce Wholesale Suite plugin.
Step- 2. Add wholesale pricing on your products
To add wholesale pricing on a product, edit your product, or create a new product.
You are already installed and activated the WooCommerce Wholesale Suite plugin, so that’s why you see one additional option appear now.
Here you can set the price of your wholesale product and set the minimum number of items to be purchased to avail that product at that price.
This plugin also allows you to show different pricing based on higher quantities.
To enable this feature, check the box called ‘Enable further wholesale pricing discounts based on quantity purchased’.
Now here you can set the Wholesale Role, Starting Quantity, Ending Quantity, Price Type, Wholesale Price. So, set this up according to your needs.
Once you have done doing that, click on the Add Quantity Discount Role button.
If you want to set up more rules, repeat the same process once again with your new rules.
Now, you might be thinking ‘if I set up all the settings in global, then I don’t need to set up all the products individually’, right?
Then, you don’t need to worry about that. WooCommerce Wholesale Suite also allows you to set wholesale prices globally.
To set up your wholesale price globally, go to WooCommerce, and click on the Wholesale Prices tab and then click on Discount.
Here you need to select the Wholesale Role and the percentage of discount you want to give them to your wholesale buyers.
After you are done doing that click on the Add Mapping button.
If you want to show different pricing based on higher quantities globally, then you can set it up on the ‘Discount’ page under plugin settings.
Next, click on the Add Mapping button to save your discount rule.
Step- 3. Create wholesale customer roles
All the wholesale customers are not the same, some of them are special, right?
You can specify those customers who buy products in higher quantities or more frequently than others.
WooCommerce Wholesale Suite plugin allows you to do that by creating wholesale customer roles.
By default, the plugin comes with the Wholesale Customer user role which you can use for all your wholesale customers. But if you want you can create new roles.
To create a new role, click on WooCommerce and then the Wholesale Roles tab.
Here you need to enter your Role Name, Role Key, Description, and hit the Add New Wholesale Role button.
