B2B Has Different eCommerce Platform Needs

B2C sales are usually impulse-driven, one-off transactions using simple payment methods. B2B purchases involve higher values, take months to complete, and often involve multiple decision makers. B2B sellers need a platform with extensive features and a flexible architecture to improve customer experience and grow revenue. A B2B eCommerce platform must handle complexity at every level.

RelationshipFocused

Relationship Focused

The B2B customer relationship is a long-term partnership that is as individualized as the customer. A B2B eCommerce website must include personalized self-service portals, quick order functions, customer or industry-specific products, ordering, and shipping options.

PerformanceBased

Performance Based

B2B product catalogs vary from low-volume highly customized products to high-volume consumables. Online catalogs must handle millions of SKUs with products inventoried across many warehouses. B2B eCommerce platforms must sync inventories, process complex product transactions, and support numerous user roles without impacting performance.

LocalizationandPersonalization

Localization and Personalization

Every business uses unique workflows and approval processes. Purchases may involve multiple departments and approvals. Global brands must accommodate different languages, currencies, and shipping methods. B2B eCommerce sites must support user-identified roles and permissions and allow you to localize content for language, currency, taxing authorities, and product availability.

Flexibility-1

Flexibility

B2B eCommerce systems must offer IT teams and developers the flexibility to deploy, extend, and scale the system according to company needs. They must also have a dynamic API for customization and integrate with ERP, PIM, warehouse, and other back-office systems.
