Report Details

Despite an abundance of insights and advice available on how to operate on B2C online spaces, the B2B space has always been underestimated by suppliers, in part due to the lack of data available.

Given that some suppliers see 10+ times more value pass through the online B2B channel versus Online Grocery/Pure Play, getting your strategy right in this space will unlock significant revenue gains.

Our research shows that retail customers are moving the bulk of their order value online but using multiple platforms. It’s crucial to understand the differences of how these platforms are shopped by retailers and reflect these in your B2B eCommerce strategy.
