BigCommerce have announced the rollout of BigCommerce for B2B, a comprehensive suite of applications tailored specifically to accelerate the success of B2B merchants selling online.
Before you ask what the point is and why you can’t just use a standard BigCommerce store, the reason you may be interested in BigCommerce for B2B is the ability to manage your catalogue and prices in a different manner. If you for instance have one price list for your retailer customers, another for your wholesale suppliers, a third for overseas distributors and a fourth for direct corporate customers and you want to set minimum order levels then this may be the solution for you. BigCommerce for B2B gives you the tools to manage multiple price lists according to your requirements along with a whole host of other features.
BigCommerce for B2B is the result of the strategic alignment between BigCommerce and six industry-leading technology partners whose respective B2B solutions, integrated with BigCommerce’s open-platform software as a service solution (SaaS), create a unified B2B ecommerce solution for wholesalers, manufacturers and distributors.
“Together with these partners, BigCommerce for B2B extends BigCommerce’s native functionality with scalable, enterprise-level ecommerce tools for established brands operating within the more traditional B2B verticals. This initiative demonstrates BigCommerce’s commitment to understanding our B2B merchants and, as a partner-led, open-platform SaaS solution, our ability to provide them with the flexibility to dial-in the right ecommerce capabilities required to accelerate operations and growth.”
– Maryann Bekkedahl, senior vice president of business development, BigCommerce
