Why use e-commerce store for your company?
E-commerce is an online selling network. This effective way of buying allows the customer to create a bulk order online, this therefore cuts out the hassle and is a quicker and easier transaction. Meaning you don’t even need reps to sell your product!
The main benefit of using an e-commerce store is that it benefits the business and the customer. The wholesaler can reduce their prices of the products that they sell which will allow the consumer to purchase more stock at a more suitable price. The wholesaler can sell more products at a reduced price but will gain profit from this as it benefits both parties.
Also by using an online e-commerce store, it cuts out the unwanted wasted time. Without the e-commerce store wholesalers and consumers used a paperback catalogue, this wastes time that both companies can’t afford. An advantage of an e-commerce store is that once you have placed your order the price is automatically calculated.
Types of e-commerce
Business to consumer – is the most common type of e-commerce. This type of e-commerce is when a customer purchases a product from the wholesaler’s website. For example; Homeware products from Home-ware business.
Business to business – is where companies sell to other companies over the internet. An example of this would be our company Blue Alligator because we as a company sell products to other companies (SalesPresenter and CloudCart)
Consumer to business – is similar to the business to business as in companies selling to other companies but the consumer is a retailer. For example; a consumer would sell a product or a service to a wholesaler that will benefit them from it and also the consumer because it will generate a good business deal.
We hope you now know the benefits of using an e-commerce store to increase sales and drive traffic to your business.
