Role of B2B Marketplace Shopping List
As b2b marketplace is built for high volume transactions. In b2b eCommerce it is important to provide tools for price management and negotiations.
Quotations and Purchase orders are important but the shopping list comes first. Using shopping list merchants can create multiple calculations or you can say multiple quick lists.
In the b2b multi-vendor marketplace “quick order+ shopping list+price list” are three critical features for any b2b stores.
B2b shopping list – Back office management
Shopping lists are important for b2b customers but they are also important for the b2b marketplace as well. In the back office marketplace owner or sales rep can view the shopping list.
Hence, a sales rep can manage ( edit, update ) the shopping list.
This is important because in b2b purchasing cycle is quite long and many times updates on the shopping list are very much possible.
So sales rep must have all the rights to manage the shopping list on the customer’s behalf.
