Magento announces Magento Digital Commerce Cloud for B2B
April 6, 2017 MarTech Product News ,

Magento extends its capabilities to the B2B market by launching the Magento Digital Commerce Cloud for B2B.  The solution enables manufacturers and distributors to offer B2C-like commerce experiences with features including commerce account management, customized catalogs and price lists, tools for rapid ordering, online requests for quote workflow, and increased inventory visibility across retail outlets.

From the press release: “The dynamics for B2B companies are rapidly changing, driven by customers who want convenient, seamless, self-service options that B2C companies have long understood,” said Jason Woosley, SVP of product and technology at Magento. “Businesses want to get to market faster and serve both their B2B and B2C customers. Magento is a leader in the $6.7 trillion B2B ecommerce space, which has given us the opportunity to work directly with B2B companies to build this new offering. The result is a comprehensive and flexible cloud-based commerce suite that leverages the complete Magento Commerce portfolio and enables companies to focus on their businesses rather than building vital B2B functionality from scratch.”

eCommerce for when you’re selling offerings to the gods
November 7, 2016 Uncategorized , , ,

The Sri Venkateshwara Swamy temple in Tirumala, Andhra Pradesh has for centuries produced desserts that are offered to its deity. And now you can purchase that treat online. 

The Srivari Temple is one of the wealthiest places of worship in India and after ticket sales for darshans—the sighting of the deity—the biggest money earner for the temple is the laddu. In its 2016-17 budget, the temple board estimated revenue from offerings at more than Rs1,000 crore and Rs175 crore from laddu sales.

What is helping sales climb 20% to 30% every year since 2010? That’s when the temple decided to sell the sweets on the internet.

You too can market online. Check out the tools CabinetM has listed for building an eCommerce site, and start marketing as if you’re selling offerings to a deity.
