eCommerce for Industrial Products Suppliers
Grainger’s digital channels account for nearly 80% of their total sales.
But the majority of the industrial products eCommerce industry is still in its infancy. Only giants like Amazon Business, Fastenal, and Grainger are rapidly growing their digital presence providing proof that industrial buyers want to purchase online. If you’re involved in industrial eCommerce B2B or plan to grow in this market, you can’t afford to sit on the sidelines.

- Segment customers and market relevant products to them controlling visibility of the ones they don’t need. Increase customer satisfaction, average order value, and build the best industrial products resource around.
- Make forays into new markets and verticals. Accommodate all customers regardless of their preferences for language, currency, and payment options – and manage it all from one admin panel.
