If you are in business-to-business sales, there is a big chance that you already have a wealth of experience dealing with large companies. You know full well what it takes to do work at this level, and what the unique challenges are among the ranks of big businesses. For this reason alone, working through an B2B ecommerce platform is not just something you should take into consideration – it’s probably something that would be very beneficial for your company.
- Minimal competition: having the option of going direct to the company instead of going through a reseller, affiliate or buying online from an e-commerce site that sells to consumers.
- Lower marketing costs: there is a lot of money that can be saved when using B2B ecommerce as your primary way of selling goods because there will be fewer competitors than D2C companies, which means there will no need for large social media campaigns and expensive SEA campaigns.
- Potential cost savings on labor: you do not need a customer service like B2C companies need because you do sell your products directly to other B2B companies. On the other side, it is important to have good sales representatives.
- Infrastructure and logistics: because you can sell your products in bulk, you can save costs on storage, transport and order picking.
Build a B2B ecommerce platform
A B2B e-commerce platform often requires different functionalities than a webshop that only sells to consumers. Factor Blue has built various modules that can be used specifically to facilitate these possibilities.
Our B2B Magento modules
B2B application process
Do you only want to grant access to B2B customers after approval? With this module you can easily accept or reject account requests and make sure only the customers you want can order at your webshop.
Information based on customer account
Hiding price and stock information for customers without an account. Or make it only possible to visit product pages when a customer is logged-in.
Customer specific prices
Do you want to set up specific discounts or prices per customer? With this module it is possible to manage your product prices per customer or per customer group.
Credit limit per customer
Do you want to offer the option to order by invoice? You can set a maximum amount per customer. When a customer reaches the limit, we only show other available payment options.
First requesting a quote for one or more products is possible with this module. Through a simple application form.
Do your customers often order the same thing? Give them the convenience by creating repeat orders. These can be fully managed by the customer from the customer account. And can boost your sales.
Tailored technology stack for your business needs
This is the technical basis we use for our projects: a platform and many systems and applications that fit together. From that basis, we put together a team. Mixing backend, frontend and optional Quality Assurance (QA) for testing. For ecommerce technologies, applications and frameworks such as:
