About Wholesale Gorilla

Designed and Built by Shopify Merchants

We've been running our own Shopify store since 2013 and for years our wholesale business was totally separate. Keeping track of separate retail and wholesale inventory, sales, accounts - it was a mess! We were waiting for a great Shopify wholesale app that didn't require us to cobble together multiple apps to make work, and that wasn't designed by coders who didn't know the first thing about actually selling wholesale. And we kept waiting...

Then we got tired of waiting and built our own! We're proud and excited to share with you the wholesale app we've always wanted.

How it works

Wholesale Gorilla uses customer tags to discount products for customers who are logged in to your shop. You can create tags manually, or tags can be created automatically by the app when a new customer signs up. Simplify your life by merging wholesale and retail into your existing Shopify store.

The Essentials

  • Integrates seamlessly into your shop without creating duplicate variants.
  • Set wholesale prices for your entire store, specific collections, products, or variants.
  • Create prices as a percent off the original amount, or set a new fixed price.
  • Set a minimum order value for wholesale orders.
  • Add wholesale prices to orders created manually in your Shopify admin.
  • Easy to use interface - no coding required.
  • No extra or hidden fees. Ever!

The Awesome Stuff

  • Create custom wholesale shipping rules.
  • Net Checkout - customers can checkout without paying.
  • Set minimum/multiple/maximum quantity rules for the cart, collections, or products.
  • Single Page Order Form - Beautifully designed. Ability to exclude certain products or collections.
  • Ship partial/complete option during checkout for out-of-stock inventory.
  • Customer signup form that integrates seamlessly with your site and automatically tags, activates, and creates customers in Shopify.
  • Automatically tags wholesale orders for easy identification and advanced analytics.
  • Customizable messages throughout your site that our only visible to wholesale customers.
  • Translations! Display messages and pages generated by Wholesale Gorilla in Spanish, French, German, Italian, and more.

All of our proxy forms are timing out and showing "There was an error in the third-party application." This is a very costly issue since our customers are not able to login or access the quick order forms.

I'm sorry about this temporary service outage you experienced! It looks our server was undergoing maintenance early Sunday morning. While our service wasn't down completely, our app wasn't accessible for a brief period of time for some stores. I'm sorry that happened to you!

While an issue such as this is rare, we have updated our system to prevent an outage like this from occurring again. I'm sorry again that this happened and for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have reached out to you via email as well, and if you have any other questions or issues please don't hesitate to contact us at support@wholesalegorilla.net

Good app but super limited.

They work off of proxies, so no templates are really involved to modify. Having an issue where we cannot allow wholesalers to commit to stock (purchase stock) while not allowing retail customers too. SUPER IMPORTANT.

Customer service is OK and responsive (reasonable time frame) but offer no chat or phone support. They offer very little solutions other then 'we cannot customize please contact a developer.'

I was very excited to try them out as they come off as a 'small business wholesaler who understands the demands/challenges of small businesses' but in reality, they offer similar functionality to other wholesale apps. Id still recommend them, but definitely limited and would look at other options on the table.

- you cannot modify the application form
- you have very little customization options on the quick form
- orders are being auto drafted upon checkout for dealers, but if product is out of stock it prevents them from doing this
- do yourself the favor and look at competitor apps and compare functionality

Thanks so much for the feedback. While you can prevent wholesale or retail customers from purchasing certain products with Wholesale Gorilla, it sounds like you want to have different inventory settings for wholesale/retail customers for a single product? If so this is a request we hear a lot, but unfortunately Shopify will not let us submit an order if any out-of-stock items are in the cart. Since Shopify doesn't provide developers a way to set customer-specific inventory at this time, the best workaround is to create a retail-only and wholesale-only product so that these groups of customers can be limited to the inventory you set for each product. In some cases we can develop a workaround for Shopify's limitations, but in other cases all apps are limited by the same rules they set.
As for the customization/proxies issue we definitely agree that more customization options are essential, and we are excited to be releasing a much more robust way for merchants to customize wholesale pages this fall.
Thanks again for your input. We are committed to helping small businesses by continuously working to improve and expand on our feature set, and hearing from merchants directly is the best way for us to do this.

I wish there was a way to customize the application form in order to add a tax id certification to improve the process, however it is very easy to tag customers, set up special pricing, etc.
