App details

B2B Handsfree

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 B2B registration form

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

B2B Handsfree's custom registration form lets customers register with their full business info, including 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.

If you choose the Advanced plan, you can add custom fields to B2B Handsfree's registration form to capture even more data from your customers. Choose from multiple field types like text, number, date and more.

Automatic account invite after registration & VAT exemption

After completing the registration form, wholesale customers get an email with a link by 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 invoice templates in Order Printer, Order Printer Pro, Billbee, Sufio 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 features can be enabled or disabled depending on your specific requirements. Want to verify new wholesale customers by hand? 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 B2B account on your store.

    Customer support is very poor, asked them to guide me through the installing process and how it works, they seem not care and keep sending their written useless tutorials. Then they offered to use other app if we don't understand their app... joke

    This was a seriously puzzling and unfortunate interaction. We’re sorry that the app and our support weren’t up to your expectations. Even for us, this was a mess and we've never experienced anything like this in four years on the App Store with hundreds of users and support tickets.

    You opened a support ticket asking some questions about how our app works, and we answered each one promptly (in well under an hour). After installing our app, you asked to be guided through using it. So we provided you with a detailed explanation on how the app works from setting it up to using it day-to-day. You came back with several questions, all of which are answered in the tutorial we provided, but we still did our best to answer each one individually.

    The app was already set up and working on your store. All that was left to do was add a link to B2B Handsfree's registration page to your store's navigation menu. You already havea navigation menu with links to various pages on your store, the link to B2B Handsfree's registration page would have been created in exactly the same way.

    We, again, provided you with step-by-step instructions on how to add this link and even sent you a link to Shopify's help page on the subject, just to be safe. You replied that this was confusing. At that point I concluded that you were probably looking for an app that does things in a completely different way and that our app was therefore not going to be a good fit for you. Our app has a very specific approach which doesn't work for everyone.

    So I suggested a different, simpler app that I hoped would be a better fit. We always do this if we feel a merchant will be better served by a competing app. To this, after 20 support messages going back and forth, with us making every effort to explain how our app works, you responded that our customer support sucked, that you wanted a video tutorial, our written tutorials were useless, and that an App Store review would certainly improve our customer support.

    I made a last effort to smooth things over, but here we are with our first ever 1-star review, which I believe I can say we worked very hard for. I guess you can't win 'em all.
