B2B - Business-to-Business

B2B is the abbreviation of Business-to-Business, which is rather self-explanatory: B2B summarizes commercial transactions between businesses such as:

  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Wholesalers
  • Retailers
  • Providers of online shops
  • Professional Ebay sellers
  • Professional travel traders
  • Importers
  • Exporters
  • etc.

According to our understand and business model, participants in B2B transactions represent legal entities including all privileges and duties belonging to that status, especially to be distinguished from transactions between businesses and private consumers (B2C).

Strictly B2B

Wholesale.eu represents a strict application of the B2B concept: It’ll be only available for corporate members who prove their status by submitting an official traders’ license or company registration document. This admission restriction has proven very successful on other projects of GKS Handelssysteme GmbH like the online wholesale marketplace RESTPOSTEN.de, which has been launched in 1997. There, strictly B2B has ensured a private and trustworthy environment where members of the marketplace can be sure of the status of potential business partners. To provide its members with the same breeding ground for professional and efficient business deals is the mission of Wholesale.eu.

Ready for the future

A lot of industry insiders have pointed out the enormous potential of the B2B sector within e-commerce. Within the EU, B2B takes advantage of the unified currency and harmonized legislature (for more information about this important topic, please visit the "Legislature and treaties" section of the official EU website at http://europa.eu/documentation/legislation/index_en.htm. To help companies residing within the borders of the EU gain benefit from the advantages of online B2B transactions and the principles of the European Union, we are developing Wholesale.eu as an online marketplace for the trade of directly available consumer goods and stock lots.
