Essential B2B eCommerce Tool
3dcart B2B eCommerce includes powerful B2B-specific features to make running your business easier and provide your customers with the shopping experience they're looking for.
Customer Groups allow you to segment your customers according to various criteria, such as location, order volume, industry, products ordered, reorder frequency, or any other information in their customer profiles. The visibility of different areas and options on your website can be assigned per Customer Group, enabling you to perfectly tailor your website to each segment of your customer base. In fact, you can even sell B2B and B2C at the same time, from the same website.
Customer-Specific Catalog and Pricing
3dcart enables complete control over the products and prices you offer to different Customer Groups, making it possible to offer different pricing levels to different clients and even build sections of your online store specifically for particular clients you supply. The ability to personalize both your pricing and your catalog as needed presents unlimited opportunities for all kinds of B2B organizations.
Customer-Specific Price Lists
Further refine your pricing strategy by creating specific pricing for customers on an individual basis. Create lists of products and assign unique prices to them, and then assign those price lists to any customer as you see fit. This is a useful tool for giving specific customers special pricing based on your ongoing business relationships. You can create as many price lists as you need, assign them to multiple customers, and assign more than one list to the same customer. If a product is on multiple lists and a customer is assigned both, the product's higher listed price will be used.
Minimum Order Quantities and Bulk Discount Tiers
Easily define minimum order quantities for each product, along with specific quantity multiples as necessary for items sold in packs, cases, or pallets. You can also set up tiered bulk discounts to offer increasing discounts as the customer purchases larger quantities. You have full control over which discount tiers are offered to which customer groups.
3dcart allows you to hide as much of your website as you prefer from unregistered visitors, including pricing, products, or even entire sections of your catalog and more. You can also leave your site visible while preventing unregistered visitors from purchasing, to allow new potential customers to see what you offer — it's your choice. Whichever setup you choose, you can implement password protection on the desired parts of your website within moments.
B2B Cost Center Locations
Some B2B organizations only sell to a specific list of customers or locations, such as franchises, employees, or other businesses with exclusive sales agreements. The B2B Cost Center Locations add-on allows you to define a list of locations for your different Customer Groups to select from at checkout, as an alternative to allowing them to enter a shipping address. B2B Cost Center Locations is normally $49.99/month, but is included free with 3dcart's B2B eCommerce plan.
Tax Exemption Status
Certain products, categories, customers, or even whole Customer Groups may qualify for tax-exempt status. 3dcart already makes it simple to charge the correct sales tax at all times, but we also include functionality for defining tax exemption wherever it's needed — per product, per customer, and more.
Order History and Quick Reordering
Customers who repeatedly place identical orders will be able to reorder instantly from the order history on their Account page. This is a highly-demanded feature among B2B buyers, who seek the fastest possible way to place accurate, consistent orders.
Quick Order Pad
Some customers may already have the Part Numbers or SKUs of multiple products they want to buy from you, whether because they're familiar with your catalog, or because you sell parts that are commonly ordered by Part Number such as auto parts. The Quick Order Pad allows customers to simply fill in Part Numbers and quantities to place their order, rather than needing to browse your website! This add-on is normally $199, but is included free in 3dcart's B2B eCommerce plan.
Purchase Order Module
Just because your business is a B2B supplier doesn't mean you don't necessarily get your products from another distributor first. 3dcart's Purchase Order module makes it simple to keep your inventory stocked up by allowing you to automatically generate Purchase Orders when your inventory falls below your defined threshold. You can then receive and restock inventory in the same screen.
Sales Rep Module
As a B2B organization, you may have any number of sales representatives working to secure new clients. 3dcart's Sales Rep Module makes it easy to manage commissions and assignments for your sales staff. Detailed reports can also be generated to track data from an individual representative or from your sales staff as a whole.
B2B Financing with Apruve
Apruve is a B2B credit network that allows B2B sellers to extend lines of credit to business customers, risk-free. B2B buyers with access to an open credit account, such as the one Apruve can provide for your eCommerce website, have been shown to place over twice as many orders and over three times more items per order — raising your revenue and Average Order Value. As the seller, you are paid within 24 hours and Apruve handles all invoicing automatically. The Apruve connector normally costs $99, but is included free in 3dcart's B2B eCommerce plan.
Please note that fees from Apruve will still apply.
A PunchOut catalog benefits the B2B relationship by allowing customers to view your eCommerce website within their own procurement app. This leads to improved convenience for buyers, and greater revenue for sellers — but PunchOut catalogs can be hard to develop. PunchOut2Go automatically makes your website compatible with a wide range of procurement systems so it can function as a PunchOut catalog for your customers. The PunchOut2Go connector is normally $1,000, but is included free in 3dcart's B2B eCommerce plan.
Please note that fees from PunchOut2Go will still apply.
ReTrans Freight Integration
Freight management is central to the business strategy of B2B sellers who often move vast amounts of products to fulfill clients' orders. 3dcart's partnership with ReTrans Freight brings the benefits of heavy-freight management and LTL shipping rates directly to your 3dcart store, so you can ship any size order with ease — and at great rates.
