50 wholesalers sign up to b2b.store in its first year

b2b.store, the wholesale-specific ecommerce platform from RNF, has marked its first anniversary with the news that 50 wholesalers have now signed up to its services.

RNF has also processed orders worth £235 million over the last 12 months across its digital platforms, which are used by wholesalers including Bestway, Booker and Blakemore, as well as independent operators and members of buying groups Confex, Fairway, Sterling Supergroup, Sugro and Unitas. This represents 60% year-on-year growth.

Rob Mannion, founder and CEO of b2b.store, said: “b2b.store was designed to help wholesalers of all sizes access one of the major growth channels in wholesale – digital – supporting them to provide a more personalised service to their customers.

“The trend towards digital ordering has been gathering pace over the last few years but the arrival of COVID-19 last year accelerated the shift, with b2b.store enabling wholesalers to pivot their businesses to sell online and reach new markets in a matter of days.

“Since b2b.store was launched 12 months ago, we have processed over 10,000 orders on the platform and released software updates and new features every month to ensure our customers stay at the leading edge of new developments. For example, several customers are now making use of our translation offer – in partnership with Comtec Translations – to improve services for their international customers, with the platform now being used in seven countries and more to follow.”

b2b.store, which works across mobile, desktop and tablet with zero set-up costs, is specifically designed to help members of the wholesale and distribution industries grow their businesses through the intelligent use of digital services. It is used by customers across the grocery, foodservice, electrical, plumbing, pharmaceutical and petcare sectors.
