Apps and B2B

In business-to-business (B2B) commerce, merchants sell directly to other companies. When a company is the customer, there are often multiple contacts and locations, pre-negotiated payment terms, and catalogs to manage. All of these factors complicate expanding a business into the B2B space.

You can use the GraphQL Admin API to build apps and features that help Shopify merchants to manage their B2B commerce. For example, you can build B2B-specific interfaces for managing company locations, draft orders and invoicing, and catalogs.

In this guide, you'll learn how B2B objects work, and how to use the GraphQL Admin API to build common B2B features.
