Which B2B ecommerce sites are getting it right? Here’s 15 of the best…

Earlier this year, I wrote a post looking at some of the best ecommerce sites around, picking out aspects of these sites that others could learn from. 

As the vast majority were B2C, some commentors challenged me to find similarly good examples of B2B ecommerce sites. 

I’ve asked the Econsultancy team, found a few myself, and here we are. 

Some are listed because they offer a great all round experience, others because they do a particular thing very well (navigation, copywriting, and so on). 

Ecommerce: how to approach the next big thing in B2B marketing

B2B marketing has long been under-represented, not to mention B2B ecommerce.

But with the entry of Amazon Supply and Google Shopping for Suppliers to the market, B2B ecommerce is quietly catching up.

So much so that forecasts suggest that the B2B ecommerce market will be double the size of B2C by 2013.

This is a real wake up call for B2B companies that have not considered selling their products online.
