What is B2B e-commerce?

B2B e-commerce is Business to Business Electronic Commerce that encompasses the online sales of products and services between companies. (B2B is sales between companies, while B2C is sales between consumers). While B2C e-commerce is relatively simple when compared to B2B transactions, Online B2B Sales tend to be much more complex. When discussing B2B e-commerce transactions, the prices tend to be highly variable, have more complex shipping requirements and usually require multi-level approvals to submit orders which translates to complex access and role scope controls.

This is in contrast to B2C e-commerce transactions, where the prices are generally fixed, quantities are low, and shipping is straightforward. As you might imagine, since businesses are much larger entities than individual consumers, the volume of products and services are much higher, plus B2B e-commerce markets must deal with regulatory requirements as well as  complex tax calculations due to tax exemptions for specific businesses and products in some regions. Because the B2B e-commerce market is so complex, the implementation processes and the solution requirements can be very demanding.

How is e-commerce in the B2B world Expected to Grow?

According to a 2020 Forbes article, when compared to the B2C industry, B2B e-commerce is projected to be two times bigger this year alone. In fact, the B2B e-commerce growth is expected to be the largest of all e-commerce growth from this year through 2025. This projected growth is due to rising mobile and Internet use, technological advances such as cloud-based e-commerce platforms, and significant advances in payment and shipping options. B2B sites must now give their brands the platform to sell offered products, as well as promoting the image of their company.

Crucial Components of B2B e-commerce

To stay in the B2B game, it is imperative that site speeds be optimized people hate to wait on anything in our “immediate” society, and that includes waiting for an e-commerce page to load. Business owners must also set goals for their B2B e-commerce site. Generally speaking, although consumers are much more likely to research a product prior to buying than they were in the past, B2B clients do even more research because they are making business decisions. B2B businesses are also required to integrate content and commerce as a means of providing Sales Representatives the tools they need to provide updated, accurate, and easily accessible information.

User experience is just as important in B2B e-commerce, even though many B2B sites do not consider this a high priority. Remember, B2B e-commerce sites—just like B2C sites—must have engaging content, character, and graphics, and online ordering portals should always provide more than simply a list of SKUs. Finally, make sure your B2B e-commerce site is fully optimized for mobile—Millennials are picking up the B2B e-commerce market, and want it on the go.  In short, B2B e-commerce sites must provide advanced functionality, easy ordering, price negotiation, inventory management, and seamless transactions.
