We Understand Merchanting

Merchants need specific features when selling online

Builders merchants who consider selling online quickly realise their requirements are different from retailers.

Merchants need to be able to manage multiple price lists, build custom catalogues, have quick order forms, build and save quotations, set account roles, credit limits, payment methods and much more.

Likewise, they have complex requirements around delivery, which must take account of the capacity and operationally efficient range of their fleet of delivery trucks.

All this complexity means that most solutions just don’t meet the requirements of the merchant business, which is why so many have either had disappointing results from eCommerce or simply have not got into it.

While many websites claim to have business to business functionality, most of these website only scratch the surface. Many website providers do not understand the difference between the business to business and retail environments and as a result, produce solutions that don’t provide what the merchant customers need.

This is where our solution stands out.
