    In General B2B eCommerce will be a huge market worldwide - it will be important not to be left out:

    The following PRESS RELEASE might also be of interest:

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

     

    “The Global B2B E-Commerce market will reach US$ 6.7 trillion by 2020” – BIZ-FAQ.com, a new B2B Q&A and Networking Site aims to help Manufacturers and Wholesaler get ready.

     

    The unprepared run the risk of losing major market share to this fast approaching B2B e-commerce flood tide!  BIZ-FAQ.com  the B2B e-commerce Q&A and Social Network beta site aims to help manufacturers and wholesalers prepare for the coming B2B e-Commerce tidal wave.

     

    Business to Business Online (B2B) is projected to grow to $6.7 trillion by 2020, according to a leading industrial market research firm. As more and more manufacturers and wholesalers from more and more countries start to migrate to online platforms to meet their procurement needs the market is predicted to grow even larger and could account for as much as 50% of the total manufacturing trade worldwide by 2027.

     

    But unlike in B2C markets the B2B e-commerce markets face several challenges. Prices are more variable; Order volumes are generally much higher; Shipping and logistics are far more complex and the potential for disputes and the need for Trade Assurance and guarantees are much greater. Tax and regulatory concerns are also of greater importance and impact than B2C. The B2B e-commerce learning curve for the OEM and wholesale buyer could thus be really steep, but one that can only be avoided at great peril. The savings and efficiency offered by the technological advancements facilitating sales and procurement on the move through smart phones and tablets, are so significant that even sellers who are hesitant to disrupt their current ecosystems of sales and distribution will have no choice but to to migrate to the business use of online platforms or lose market share.

     

    To help Buyers and Sellers to dip their toes to test the waters, Blue Ocean Technology Partners LLC., a Washington DC based firm, is introducing BIZ-FAQ.com the Online B2B Q&A and Social Network site (still in beta).

     

    • Here the Buyers and Sellers will be able tohave their online B2B questions answered by experts and peers on the BIZ-FAQ.com Q&A Forum on a one to many, many to one or one to one basis.

     

    • Experts and service providers in the online B2B space can also register and participate not only to promote their services and generate leads but also to help the “newbies”talk about and learn more on the online B2B space in a social setting.

     

    • The BIZ-FAQ.com site also includes educational and learning materials relevant to the needs of the online B2B marketer or buyers.

     

    • Finally, to help buyers and sellers to try out the online B2B e-commerce ideafor themselves on a low risk scale, BIZ-FAQ.com has a free online B2B classifieds page. This is the place for sellers to advertise to the OEM or wholesale buyers and for buyers to find procurement opportunities to test out and gain more confidence in the online procurement process, assess their particular risk profiles and identify remedial services and coverage.

     

    The site is free to join for now and the Classifieds are free to use. The educational and training materials are also mostly free. The site is still in beta, so so it might be a good investment to join now while it is still free. All that is initially needed is the user’s name and  email address.
