Deeper Integration of Shopify
I help to run an ecommerce site where we sell our products using Shopify.
However, we have several challenges I need to address better integrate Shopify into how we work some of them as follows:
Trade customers currently order by email or phone, we want to change this to Shopify, but they have different pricing schemes and they can sometimes cause inventory issues to us due to the size of some of the orders.
Is it possible to open a seperate Shopify portal that allows access to their prices and is still linked to our inventory?
How should I go about setting up the portal for these type of customers?
We also provide a 'drop shipping' facility to some of these clients, we have faced challenges splitting the invoice between our customer and their customer. Is it better to have the seperate portal or use an App like receiptify to add onto our existing site?
Accounting, we currently duplicate every invoice and customer detail into quickbooks causing wasted valuable resource time. How can we use Shopify to help reduce this by using it to hold all of our transactions required to produce accounting records considering the different customers we have and different methods they use to buy: web, phone, email, trade shows / retail / cash?
