On today's episode, I’m chatting with Aidan Mattrick from Pixel Union. They are a triple threat when it comes to Shopify Partners. They are one of the top premium theme developers, they’re a Shopify Agency partner who has helped design and launch 1000’s of digital brands, and they are also a Shopify App partner, with 6 apps in the Shopify App store. We chat about one today called: Wholesale Club
According to a 2019 eCommerce Market Report, transactions in the United States processed through B2B ecommerce sites, log-in portals and online marketplaces grew 11% in 2018 to reach over $1 trillion dollars. And 50% of total B2B sales, or $7.37 trillion, are still conducted manually, by account managers and sales reps.
But much these sales are moving to Shopify now…
The new reality is buyers are seeking the convenience of using an ecommerce site to make their wholesale purchases and more sellers are seeing this as ways to reach more customers, process more sales orders and operate more cost-efficiently.
This is a great discussion to learn about how selling wholesale on Shopify just got a whole lot easier!
