It is a B2B+B2C hybrid plugin for WooCommerce that has all the necessary features for the perfect wholesaling solution.

Why Should We Add WooCommerce Bulk Order Form to Our Existing Store?
This form unlocks the bulk ordering feature for your WooCommerce B2B stores. Your customers can search for their products using categories or tag filters. Customers can select multiple products in large quantities without having to go through different pages for different products.
The total payment amount is also displayed without refreshing the page or going to the cart page.
Along with the form, we will also have the purchase list feature. A purchase list allows us to save an assorted list of items and quantities. Allowing our customers to repeat their orders by just selecting the purchase list instead of selecting all the items and their quantities all over again.
This feature adds convenience and comfort for your customers. Being able to order in bulk from one screen and repeat their order without any hassle will make your customers return to you for business.

How the Registered Users can Use the Bulk Order Form
When we access our my account page as a customer, we can see that the Bulk Order and Purchase List section has been added. If you decide to deactivate the feature, these sections will also disappear from the “My Account” page.
On the Bulk Order page, we are able to select multiple products using the product filters in large quantities from one page. As you can see, the total payment amount is also being updated live on the page.
Now, we can directly go to the cart page but we could also save it as an order list to make the purchase on a later date or reorder the same items in the future.
On the Purchase List page, your customers can add a new list, view an existing list, and we can also download a list.
