Many businesses selling their products wholesale are aware of the benefits of an online B2B eCommerce platform. Few, however, get around to invest in one. Two of the main reasons are the cost or the expected long and tiresome implementation.

First step – your products
First thing first! For you to have an online B2B eCommerce shop, you need to have products to sell.

Second step – your retailers/resellers
The next step in setting up your personal online B2B eCommerce platform is adding your retailers. At least if you want to sell your products. Just as with the creation of products, there are three options; Manual, uploading a spreadsheet, or via integration from your accounting system. Again, if making use of one of the latter two options, the process is done in minutes.
When you add a customer to your Turis platform, they will automatically receive an invitation by email, to shop your products in your new online B2B eCommerce shop. They simply need to click a link to your shop, and they are good to go.
Third step – get started!
The third step is quite simple; kick back and relax! Your online B2B eCommerce platform is now up and running. From now on you will receive your wholesale orders digitally. This removes the burden of manual order handling and frees up time to focus on growing your business.

Depending on the size of your business, the entire operation can be done within a couple of days or a week’s time.
