To choose who can see your Wholesale Section and/or your applied wholesale discounts on the storefront, there are two different ways to do that:
1. Access to your applied wholesale discounts can be configured using Discount groups in the Wholesale Pricing Discount app.
2. Access to your entire Wholesale Section can be configured using the Wholesale Lock Manager app.
Now, let’s look at these two different kinds of configurations in detail:
Configuration 1: To choose who can see your applied wholesale discounts
Wholesale prices (discounts) will only be shown to the customers who belong to the created Discount group.
You can configure your Discount groups in the Wholesale Pricing Discount app by clicking on the Discount groups link (as shown in the image below):
To configure your discount group(s), follow these steps:
Add a specific customer tag to your Discount group (as shown in below image):
But, to be able to configure a Discount group successfully, you should have added/assigned this customer tag to your customer. To assign a (discount) tag to your customer, go to the Customers section in your Shopify admin dashboard (see image below):
Now, there could be three cases where you want to:
- Assign a (discount) tag to an existing customer
- Create a new customer and assign a (discount) tag
- Inviting a customer to create a new account on your store with the signup/register form and adding a (discount) tag to their account

You can see the assign tag option for a specific customer by clicking on Customer name. For example (see image):
Configuration 2: To choose who can see your entire Wholesale Section
You can restrict access to your Wholesale Section or any store content using the Wholesale Lock Manager app. Further, you can choose to show/hide or password-protect prices or specific product pages on your store.

- In the same section, you will be asked to Select who can/cannot access your Wholesale section.
- Now, under the Content section select the Specific URL option (radio button) and in the URL placeholder, enter your unique wholesale section URL (default URL is /apps/wpdapp/wholesale). See the below image:
