Shopify B2B Ecommerce Solutions
Shopify B2B Development Agency
We can grow your wholesale ecommerce business by designing and developing superb B2B experiences for you and your wholesale customers on Shopify Plus.
B2B on Shopify Plus - How Does It Work?
Shopify Plus offers an all-in-one platform for selling wholesale together with the rest of your business, from one intuitive admin area.
B2B on Shopify Plus has built-in features for everything wholesale. Instead of a third-party app or sales channel, B2B on Shopify lets you choose between either one online store for both DTC and wholesale (with a B2B checkout and authentication) - or a dedicated B2B store to keep your operations separate.
Whichever option you choose, your buyers will have customer-specific pricing, payment terms, tax exemptions, and more. It’s easy for you, your employees, and your customers.
Why Partner With Eastside Co for Your Shopify Plus Wholesale Store?
Shopify B2B Experts
Our team of experienced Shopify developers and designers understand the unique challenges and opportunities in the B2B ecommerce space. We can empower your business with robust Shopify solutions designed exclusively for B2B needs.
With over a decade of experience on the Shopify platform, we’re perfectly placed to help businesses either moving to the B2B space or looking to replatform. From migrating ecommerce businesses to Shopify and Plus, to designing and developing stores, managing third party integrations and creating bespoke solutions - we’ve done it all.
As a Shopify Plus partner agency, we’re trusted by Shopify itself and have worked with the Shopify B2B solution since it launched. Building a B2B store draws upon the same skills and development knowledge as with a D2C store. This enables us to create B2B stores with confidence, thanks to our experience of building over 500 Shopify and Shopify Plus stores in the last ten years.
Our purpose is to help ecommerce businesses grow and thrive across D2C and B2B, and we have the skills, experience, tools and technology to help you achieve your goals.
Our Shopify B2B Services
The Shopify B2B system is feature-rich, flexible and works well for merchants and customers. However, if you’re a merchant looking to move into the wholesale marketplace, we’d recommend working with an experienced Shopify agency to transfer data, to design and develop your store, and ensure you can create a bespoke experience for your B2B customers.
Custom B2B Shopify Store Development
We specialise in creating fully customised, user-friendly, and responsive Shopify stores tailored to the unique requirements of B2B businesses. Our expert developers will work closely with your team to build a digital storefront that showcases your brand and enhances the customer experience.
We can tailor your B2B ecommerce experience according to your business needs.
Dedicated or Blended Stores
Dedicated B2B Store
This is a good option for businesses that want to differentiate between B2B and D2C customers. We can build you a bespoke store with more customised options that are tailored specifically for B2B and wholesale customers.
This works well if you want to keep D2C and B2B separate, for example if you want different shipping rates or better segmentation of business and inventory data between the two stores. The separation of the two stores does require a larger project and separate management of the two.
Blended D2C/B2B Store
We design and develop an extension of your existing D2C Shopify store so you can expand into B2B. D2C customers shop as normal and your wholesale customers access the store via their account so they can see wholesale price lists and payment terms.
This option is good if you want to keep all your business data under one roof and manage both stores together. Both B2B and D2C customers will have the same ecommerce experience. Drawbacks include a lack of diversity between the two stores due to shared function (same shopping settings and rates, same emails and notifications).
Shopify B2B Ecommerce Development
Simplify your operations by integrating your Shopify store with leading B2B software solutions, including ERP systems, CRM, and inventory management tools. We ensure that your data flows seamlessly, enabling better decision-making and increased efficiency.
Wholesale and Pricing Strategies
Strategically price your products, offer tiered discounts, and streamline your wholesale operations on Shopify. We'll help you implement pricing structures and user access controls that cater to your B2B customers while ensuring profitability.
An Optimised B2B Experience
Payment and Checkout Optimisation
Maximise conversion rates and provide your B2B customers with a hassle-free shopping experience. Our team will optimise the payment and checkout process, enabling easy order placement, invoicing, and account management.
Custom App Development For Unique Functionality
If your B2B ecommerce requirements demand custom functionality or features, our development team can create bespoke Shopify apps to meet your specific needs.
Ongoing Support: Your Trusted Partner
We work with our clients on a long-term basis, providing ongoing site support to ensure your B2B Shopify store continues to evolve and remains at the cutting edge.
A Client-Centric Approach
We believe in working closely with our clients to develop solutions that align with their goals and objectives, and deliver results.
Other Benefits of B2B on Shopify
Shopify B2B has everything you need to run your wholesale business on Shopify. Shopify’s B2B functionality was overhauled in 2022, with wholesale features integrated directly into Shopify Plus.

Shopify B2B Wholesale FAQs
Some further information about our Shopify B2B services.
How much is B2B on Shopify?
B2B functionality is included at no extra cost if you’re on a Shopify Plus plan. The investment required for designing and developing your B2B store will depend on your specific needs.
How will moving to Shopify B2B impact my customers?
It will improve the experience - allowing them to purchase in a way they’re likely already familiar with through shopping on D2C Shopify stores. All they’ll need to do is update their password to access the B2B account but this will be communicated to them via an automated email.
How long does it take to get set up on Shopify B2B?
This depends on the scope of your project - there are too many variables to give an answer here. Contact our team to discuss your requirements and they’ll be able to estimate timeframes.
Can I integrate my ERP with Shopify?
Yes - Shopify has partnered with global ERP partners including Dynamics 365 Business Central, Brightpearl, Netsuite, Acumatica Cloud and Infor Ecommerce to make sure online businesses can integrate business data and start selling wholesale quickly. There are also Shopify APIs that can be used to connect ERPs and we can manage all of this.
What information do you move across to the new platform?
Customer details, payment options, price lists, product details, photographs and other media will all be migrated to the new system.
I’m already on Shopify for my D2C store - can I add B2B?
B2B on Shopify is built directly into the core of Shopify's platform. If you’re a retail business looking to sell wholesale, the platform will work for you and we will help manage this process. The system is flexible enough to support D2C brands as they expand into B2B, as well as established wholesale businesses that are looking for a new platform.
