eBay Consolidates B2B Offerings under eBay Business Supply

eBay has consolidated its B2B (business-to-business) offerings under one brand and announced the launch of “eBay Business Supply” on Tuesday. “The rebranded experience centralizes eBay’s B2B offerings,” the company said.

eBay Business Supply brings its Business & Industrial category, SAP Ariba Spot Buy and eBay Wholesale Deals solutions all under one umbrella. The company explained:

“At eBay, we’re always looking for ways to improve the shopping experience for millions of customers as they browse, discover and purchase from an immense selection of inventory. With eBay Business Supply, we’re making it even easier for businesses from SMBs to large enterprises to buy and sell supplies and equipment across more than a dozen major product categories, including Electrical & Test Equipment; MRO & Industrial Supply; Healthcare, Lab & Life Science; Manufacturing & Metalworking; Restaurant & Catering; and Heavy Equipment.”

SAP Ariba Spot Buy is eBay’s partnership with SAP Ariba to build a solution that allows corporate procurement professionals and employees to purchase millions of Facilities & MRO, Electrical & Test, Technology, Office Supplies, Parts & Accessories and many other business items from trusted, vetted eBay sellers within Ariba’s e-procurement solution.

eBay Wholesale Deals is an exclusive marketplace that connects qualified wholesalers, which eBay has vetted for credibility and low prices, to eBay sellers.

eBay said that as the B2B category continues to grow, businesses should keep an eye out for more news and updates from its eBay Business Supply team.
