How does wholesale profit from e-commerce?

 

E-commerce for wholesalers enables a consistent offering across all channels (omnichannel).

Wholesalers traditionally have a clear multi-channel strategy, interacting with their customers through catalogs, brick-and-mortar stores, sales reps, phone consultations, and through online offerings.

The new generation of B2B customers expects seamless interactions with a company across all channels: Whether they interact with the company directly through a sales representative, over the phone, through their computer, or through a wholesale app, they want the exact same offerings, information, and services. Providing a consistent offering across all channels is not always easy for wholesalers, but it also gives them decisive advantages!

 

E-commerce for wholesalers enables efficient processes and savings

If existing resources can be shared between different channels, there is potential for savings, synergy effects and greater profitability: service staff can be reassigned to focus on individual and consulting-intensive services if simple and repetitive services are provided by the online shop.

Distribution costs can be reduced through a cross-channel view of inventories, process costs and throughput times per order can be optimized by shifting to online channels, and media breaks can be avoided at the same time.

 

More sales through e-commerce for wholesalers

More and more wholesalers have recognized the opportunities of e-commerce to increase their sales results, and traditional sales are increasingly shifting towards online sales.

Faster purchasing, a wider product range at lower prices and additional costs, combined with comprehensive after-sales services are key reasons why buyers are increasingly preferring the online channel to face-to-face contact.

This is precisely where e-commerce solutions for wholesalers come into play: Buyers can conveniently and comprehensively find information about the products or services they need in the online catalog at any time, have an individual quote created for the desired quantity, and independently send off the order.

All this is done on their terms - across borders and around the clock. At the same time, the supplier's sales department is relieved of an enormous amount of work and can use the time gained more profitably, for example for individual consultations or for complex and high-priced customer inquiries.
