So, I have a client doing some tidy business in handmade children’s clothes. I worked with her designer late last year to turn out her e-commerce website build on WP e-Commerce and it’s been humming along paying for itself reasonably well.
So Sarah, having got the day to day management of the online store running smoothly wants to add her wholesalers into the mix and offer them special pages for their eyes only and discounts on product throughout the whole store.
So where do you go to make that happen?
Before we begin the issues to address are –
Creating a Wholesaler User Role and managing how to give it particular privileges
Being able to offer wholesaler discounts on the cost of store items
Having a payment gateway for wholesalers that allows for deferred payment/COD
Customising the Registration for to allow for custom fields like store name and address
Customising the normal site login page with the Fabrik logo to create a more professional impression!
Creating a way of having content served specifically to wholesalers that isn’t available to ordinary shoppers
