Did you realize that a staggering 93% of B2B purchasers are now choosing online shopping? This shift underscores the importance of a seamless online interface for direct vendor interactions. To truly shine in the bustling B2B online space, your eCommerce site should emphasize effortless self-service.
However, it's essential to balance this with your other sales avenues. You have distributors, dealers, institutional bulk buyers, online marketplaces, and even direct-to-consumer sales. How do you harmonize your online sales across these diverse channels?
The answer lies in a unified platform that seamlessly merges B2C, B2B, and D2C sales. Adobe Commerce's B2B solution offers easy integration with both legacy and new backend systems.

Why a Unified B2C+B2B Site?
The primary distinction between B2B and B2C is in the ordering process. B2B orders, typically larger, often involve custom quotes and approvals. While eCommerce sites are transaction-centric, B2B interactions often involve negotiations. This difference sometimes makes traditional eCommerce platforms less appealing to predominantly B2B enterprises.
Understanding Integrated Websites
An integrated platform allows you to cater to diverse audiences, including businesses and individual consumers, under one digital roof. Such a platform lets you offer tailored catalogs and pricing, enhancing the purchasing experience. Moreover, maintaining a single portal ensures consistent branding across customer segments.
Is an Integrated Site Relevant for Pure B2B?
An integrated B2B platform isn't just about selling to both businesses and consumers. It infuses B2C eCommerce elements to elevate the shopping experience for all customers. Remember, B2B buyers are also individual consumers familiar with the B2C online shopping paradigm.
Moreover, the digital landscape is ever-evolving. A dynamic, adaptable solution that emphasizes B2B without sidelining B2C or D2C is crucial. Such flexibility allows you to tap into emerging channels and adapt to market shifts.
