PrestaShop is one of the best eCommerce platforms offering great flexibility and opportunities for selling all types of products and services.
PrestaShop Private Shop module is focused around B2B online businesses, allowing wholesalers to make their store/shop private. With the help of this module, they can restrict access to their store and let only selected customers or wholesale members explore it.
Unlike B2C online stores that are easier to manage, B2B is a bit complex. But with PrestaShop Private Shop addon, you would not find it difficult to manage your wholesale online store.
The benefits of creating a private store are-
1. You can allow only selected buyers to access your store
2. You can privatize the complete store for regular visitors or give access to some specific pages
3. Access to specific IP addresses only
4. Easy to install and configure
