Another possible sales channel for manufacturing and industrial B2B sales expands
eBay Inc. last week announced a significant combining and rebranding of several different eBay business-to-business (B2B) offerings, bringing them all under one umbrella the company calls eBay Business Supply. The eBay B2B offerings now encompassed under eBay Business Supply are: Business & Industrial, SAP Ariba Spot Buy, and eBay Wholesale Deals solutions.
eBay Inc. cites a Forrester study that projects the U.S B2B ecommerce market will grow from $780 billion in 2015 to $1.13 trillion in 2020. eBay appears to be trying to expand beyond its $4 billion B2B sales with the launch of eBay Business Supply.
The major product categories on eBay Business Supply include:
- Electrical & Test Equipment
- MRO & Industrial Supply
- Healthcare, Lab & Life Science
- Manufacturing & Metalworking
- Restaurant & Catering, and others
This expanded sales channel from eBay allows for even more competition with Amazon in the manufacturing B2B sales space.
