Skustack enables you to create accounts for your Customers, so you can personalize their shipping preferences, payment terms, specific pricing agreements, and individual contact information. You can take advantage of the default settings on customer profiles to streamline order processing, eliminating the need for manual adjustments.

There are two types of Customer profiles in Skustack – Wholesale and Retail. Wholesale Customers usually represent businesses that purchase products in significant quantities, frequently at discounted prices. Retail Customers represent the individual buyers that purchase smaller quantities from your local stores. The following article will guide you through the creation, customization, and general management of Customer profiles in Skustack.
