Looking to upgrade your B2B eCommerce site? Combine the power of Shopify with the B2B expertise of blubolt.
Since 2006, we've been creating world-class B2B solutions.
B2B platforms need to tightly integrate with the systems that control the data (e.g. an ERP, PIM, CRM or iPaaS) to ensure that B2B data is always kept in sync. This includes product, customer, and order data but may extend to shipping and tax rules.
A retailer's B2B channel can often be considerably larger than their B2C, yet the B2B design can appear tired and dated. It's important that B2B platforms offer a fresh and engaging visual experience, one that mirrors the merchant's B2C presence very closely.
B2B platforms need to give maximum control to the wholesale customer. This means giving them the tools they need to place orders and manage their account without needing customer or technical support.
The ability to set different pricing rules for customers, whether on a group level (e.g. VIP wholesale customers) or individual level (store ABC price list).
Being able to rapidly add products to an order, adjust quantities, import products at a line-item level via CSV, and to be able to save an order to come back to.
Being able to configure tiers of customers (e.g. master accounts and sub-accounts) that set different privilege levels to what actions can be performed.
Offering support for price breaks if the customer purchases multiples of an item (e.g. buy 1 at £4.20 per unit, buy 3 at £3.80 per unit).
Allowing customers to see their full order history (ideally showing offline orders too), to view credit limits, and to be able to quickly reorder again.
Ensuring customers can purchase products in the correct volumes on your B2B website, e.g. packs of 3, 6, 9, etc.
