The B2B eCommerce platform is a high-performance ordering and marketing solution designed exclusively to support B2B trading
Our decade-long history of working exclusively in the B2B space has given us a deep understanding of what is required for wholesalers to successfully trade digitally with other businesses. B2B trading is significantly different to B2C, so you need a partner that understands this and can deliver a platform tailored to B2B needs.
B2B eCommerce platforms need to support many differences to B2C, such as payment on account, bulk ordering or ordering by different units such as weight. Account management functionality is also critical for B2B, as is credit control and assisting cash flow.
What is B2B eCommerce?
The B2B eCommerce platform offers a solution for B2B businesses to offer 24/7 digital ordering to their customers across mobile, tablet and desktop. It empowers wholesalers' customers to self-serve and place orders for products at significantly less cost than traditional methods such as taking manual telesales.
Digital is currently the fastest-growing channel in retail, with adoption only accelerating further after the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, so offering an online-ordering is now a key part of any wholesale business.
b2b.store's subscription-based service can be evaluated quickly without significant upfront cost and regularly delivers free features to its customers. It is a white-label platform meaning it is pre-built and can be branded as if it were your own business.
B2B eCommerce can be significantly upgraded by combining additional b2b.store modules, including B2B WhatsApp, B2B Digital Advertising and B2B Credit Control.
Who is behind b2b.store?
It has been created by the team that developed the UK’s first-ever ordering app on behalf of Bestway Wholesale – a £2.5 billion turnover business.
We continue to work closely with the Bestway Group and our extensive portfolio of more than 80 apps for online wholesale suppliers has processed more than £230 million in revenues in the past 12 months alone.
How is B2B eCommerce different?
B2B eCommerce offers an alternative approach to traditional software development. As a subscription-based service, it is quick to evaluate with no large upfront cost. The product is fast evolving with new features frequently being delivered at no additional cost to the base subscription.
b2b.store has built its eCommerce platform using Progressive Web App (PWA) technology. PWAs are fast becoming the next generational advancement in web technology. First-generation websites worked on desktop computers only, second-generation technology websites were then optimised to work on mobile screens as well as desktop, but PWAs are what we describe as the third-generation web experience. They work on mobile and desktop, offering multiple benefits that were previously only obtainable with app technology.
The technology means wholesalers and distributors now only need one app to work across all platforms. One app means just one set of code to be maintained across desktop, mobile and tablet versions, which massively reduces both set-up and ongoing maintenance costs.
