BigCommerce’s B2B Edition allows B2B brands to launch and manage multiple storefronts from a single BigCommerce back-end, regardless of brands, geographies, or customer segments. This enables B2B brands to expand their business and reach more customers with much lower operational costs and complexity. Additionally, the dynamic buyer portal provided by BigCommerce offers modernized purchasing experiences that give buyers control of their online shopping journey, which encourages repeat business and brand loyalty.
Modernized Buyer Portal:
The new modernized buyer portal automates administrative processes while streamlining the buyer/merchant relationship. It enables efficient management of orders, quotes, and workflows to reduce operational burden while, at the same time, influencing customer loyalty and conversion.

The platform is headless agnostic and can integrate into an existing BigCommerce HTML theme or CMS platform using the buyer portal API to personalize the buyer purchasing experience further.
