B2BStore: The Headless Ecommerce Platform for B2Bby Leon Lau, May 9, 2022
Are you interested in building an online B2B store that is customizable to your business needs, minus the high cost of development?
As we’ve talked about in a previous post, Magento and Adobe Commerce offer a world of possibilities in terms of creating a high performance and scalable online B2B sales platform.
An online B2B platform with these features can help your business improve its sales performance, achieve further brand recognition, fulfill complex business requirements, and scale your online operations.
In this article, we dig deeper into how this solution could be implemented for your business, through a customized B2B headless platform.
Magento Open Source vs Adobe Commerce
The first thing to note is that Adobe offers two Commerce editions that can fit the requirements of an ecommerce business:
- Magento Open Source is a self-hosted ecommerce platform with essential commerce features available free of charge. It offers you a stable and customizable solution as well as the possibility to prototype new business models.
- Adobe Commerce is an enterprise-level ecommerce platform that provides a richer set of out-of-the-box features, with the ability to customize and seamlessly integrate with third-party providers. Robust and scalable, it also includes a cloud infrastructure option as well as 24/7 customer support.
B2BStore, a customized headless platform for B2B companies
