Many people think that consumer ecommerce dominates the market but simply isn’t the case. The fact is that business to business ecommerce is among the largest growing segments in the marketplace.

e2b teknologies, developers of Anytime Commerce, recently published “13 Reasons Why B2B eCommerce Storefronts Are Different Than B2C," a new white paper to help business to business companies evaluate B2B shopping carts and business to business ecommerce storefront software.
“Many people think that consumer ecommerce dominates the market but it simply isn’t the case. The fact is that business to business ecommerce is among the largest growing segments in the marketplace,” said James Mallory, author of the whitepaper and director of marketing at e2b teknologies. “Recent studies from Forrester project that B2B ecommerce will grow to $559 billion in 2013 and the B2C market is projected at less than half that figure at $252 billion.”
The whitepaper was designed to help B2B companies understand the growing importance of business to business ecommerce and how to choose a platform that will meet their unique B2B web storefront and B2B shopping cart needs. The white paper provides readers with best practices for choosing B2B ecommerce software, discusses current research on the subject, provides an overview of the B2B ecommerce market, discusses requirements for B2B ecommerce, the B2B ecommerce buying process, and the benefits a company can recognize through deployment of online sales storefront software.
“There are many similarities between B2B ecommerce software and B2C ecommerce software,” Mallory said. “But there are very few business to business ecommerce software products available. B2B ecommerce software products such as Anytime Commerce provide deep integration to the backoffice accounting system for customer specific pricing, online access for sales reps to place orders on behalf of their accounts, and many other features simply not found in most common B2C ecommerce software today.”
