Import & Export Prices into Custom Pricing

  • Updated

Custom Pricing provides you with the flexibility of bulk importing your wholesale discounts through a spreadsheet file. Uploading this file bypasses having to set up the pricing discounts from within the app's admin.

Using the Shopify product export feature and a spreadsheet editing program (Excel, Google Sheets, etc.), you're able to set specific discounts for each of your price tiers and products.

Note: This feature is available on the Premium plans or higher. For more information, please visit Custom Pricing: Overview & Pricing.




  • Before you begin, ensure that all store products have a SKU entered.
  • You will need to be on a Custom Pricing Premium plan or higher for this functionality.
  • Stores that want to import prices with quantity breaks should follow the Bulk Import Prices with Quantity Breaks into Custom Pricing guide. This requires the Premium Select or Complete plan.
