B2B Marketplace Supplier Onboarding

As discussed in the previous article about “b2b marketplace pricing strategy” we are going to discuss supplier registration and onboarding into a b2b marketplace.


In b2b marketplaces, there are a couple of requirements that need to be fulfilled by the supplier. Those facts are critical for the  b2b marketplaces. Example

  • Tax information
  • Supplier identity documents
  • Various certifications
  • Capital investment
  • Company/ Factory size
  • Trade capacity
  • Production capacity

and many other factors. As an example screenshot from

As you can see supplier have various attributes and information. Which are critical for the supplier onboarding into the b2b marketplaces like Alibaba.

So If you are creating a b2b multi-vendor marketplace then it is highly required that your supplier registration should be super smooth.


As every b2b business is unique in nature. It is highly recommended that seller signup should be highly customizable.  A unique registration form for all the vendors may not work in b2b eCommerce.


Supplier A / Vendor A – who is working in the garment industry

Supplier B/ Vendor B – Who is working in Auto parts industry 

As you can understand that both the industries are very different so their business information may vary a lot as well.


This is also possible that some of the information is only available for the marketplace not for the public users.

So this is highly critical that your supplier information attributes must have those configurations.
