Frequently Asked Questions About B2B Marketplaces

  • How are B2B marketplaces different from regular e-commerce stores?

    Regular e-commerce stores offer businesses attractive storefronts, automated processes, secure transactions, virtual support, and global brand exposure. While this is a great improvement from offline transactions, marketplaces offer even more:

    • Reach to wider captivated audiences
    • Excellence through expedited shipping and delivery
    • Exceptional pricing
    • Product and service availability
    • Guaranteed performance

    Marketplaces allow several merchants on one platform, offering a wider range of products, competitive pricing, and solutions to supply chain issues by providing multiple product and material sources from more than one location.

    In the manufacturing industry, for instance, businesses can benefit from specialized marketplace technology which enables them to manage their revenue better by optimizing their warehouse space through advanced inventory management.

    • Enriched product portfolio leading to effortless scalability
    • Increased profit margin due to redistribution of business risk and financial commitment

  • "At peak times, we record, on average, 4,000 to 4,800 orders a day. And there’s always surges and spikes – like just before order cutoff time when all of our customers log in at once. And with 8,000 users, as we have in the shop, that can mean a fair amount of traffic. Our shop system must be able to handle this surge in demand."
