About B2B Handsfree

Handling B2B / wholesale customers is different than managing regular consumers in multiple ways. You usually want to qualify business customers before showing them wholesale pricing, and if you’re in the EU you’ll want to get their VAT ID so they can buy from your store without paying VAT.

Custom registration form for wholesale customers

With B2B Handsfree, your wholesale customers register for an account on your store using a custom registration form. Wholesale customers in the EU can enter and validate their VAT ID, which is critical info for you as the merchant, so you can verify the customer is actually a business.

But that’s not all. Unlike the regular registration form, where a customer first registers an account with her name, email and password and can only add an address after registering, our custom registration form lets customers register with their full business info right away, including their full address, company name and phone number. Unlike Shopify's default signup process, this familiar workflow is how experienced wholesale customers expect a B2B store to work.

Automatic account invite after registration & VAT exemption

After completing the registration form, wholesale customers get an email with a link through which they can set a password for their newly created customer account. The app also sets foreign wholesale customers to tax-exempt and automatically adds their VAT ID to every order as an order attribute. You can then include the VAT ID in Order Printer invoice templates and elsewhere, which is legally required in order to be able to sell to EU business customers without charging VAT.

Configure the app's settings to match your requirements

All these features can be enabled or disabled depending on your specific requirements. Want to verify new wholesale customers by hand? No problem. Just disable the automatic account invite and send it out manually after you’ve verified the customer. Don’t want to set EU B2B customers to tax-exempt automatically? Simply uncheck the appropriate checkbox in the app’s settings.

Last but not least, the app (optionally) sends you an email every time a new customer submits the B2B registration form. That way you can immediately double-check who is registering a business account.

Au matin pro

simple, efficient, gets the job done.
the team is available, fast and friendly. I highly recommend for sure


My webpage is designed for B2B purposes.
I tried to find B2B login with VAT verification.
There are lots of apps supporting custom login format but most of them didn't support VAT verification feature. But this app DOES!

Also, I contacted the customer service several times asking them to fit the registration form design to my website and making the form as the default registration form and all of them were solved so quickly.

VAT verification feature and customer service of this App is the most outstanding point.
