Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose a B2B eCommerce platform? +

Selecting a B2B eCommerce platform designed for B2B operations is essential. Most eCommerce vendors with roots in B2C lack the robust native support for complex B2B features like personalized pricing, product configuration, and advanced inventory management tools wholesalers. Without these features, manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers struggle to manage large catalogs, streamline ordering processes, or integrate seamlessly with their existing ERP systems.

Is BigCommerce good for B2B? +

BigCommerce, while widely used for B2C eCommerce, faces challenges in adapting to B2B requirements. It struggles to replicate many B2B companies’ complex business rules, resulting in feature limitations crucial to B2B operations, such as support for both users and customers, native product configuration capabilities, and personalized checkout and shipping.

Does BigCommerce have a product configurator? +

BigCommerce's product configurator is limited. Their workaround uses a "features and options bundler" method that lists each combination of features as a separate item. This approach becomes problematic when companies surpass the 600-item threshold, forcing them to either simplify their customizations, compromise on configuration capabilities, or fragment configurations across multiple pages.

Can BigCommerce handle complex B2B pricing models natively? +

BigCommerce does not natively support highly complex B2B pricing models, such as location-specific pricing or volume-based discounts without significant customization or third-party apps.

Can BigCommerce manage inventory across multiple warehouses natively? +

BigCommerce does not support multi-warehouse inventory management natively. This functionality requires integration with third-party apps or custom solutions.
