Wholesale Discounts allow you to provide discounts on products or orders for selected customers. Once this feature is turned on, you will see an option on Customer Accounts to mark them as a wholesaler. 

If you choose to give a discount for individual products, an option will appear on products to apply the discount for those customers you've assigned as wholesale. See How to Add a Product in Your Store. The customer can only get the discount by logging into their account.
