The B2B Marketplace solution

The advent of B2B e-commerce is here, and it’s not looking anything like retail.

Retail B2B e-commerce is a real thing. It enables companies to buy (and sell) consumables and other smaller value items online. However the true potential of B2B e-commerce exists in larger value purchases, that aren’t your typical “add to cart” goods & services.

B2B marketplaces that aim to capture sizeable chunks of B2B e-commerce must be able to organize transactions as they are in the business world: through RFPs (Requests for Proposals / Quotation) and through quote requests, on top of the convenience of being able to sell small value items.

Second encompasses the key requirements to organize B2B marketplace transactions’ successfully, and helps drive new business to third party vendors while maintaining the purchasing flows that buyers are familiar with.
