Running a B2B store can be challenging, there is no doubt about that. Selling products to one customer is easy. Selling a large amount of products to another business requires a more complex approach.
So, thank God for these five Magento B2B extensions!
One thing is for sure: everything starts in the admin panel. With Magento, you have control over what happens in your online store. You decide whether companies find it delightful and easy to purchase products from you.
To help you, we put together a list of five amazing Magento extensions that promise to make everything easier.
5 Magento extensions you need for your business
1.The Multi User Extension:
Using the Magento Sub Account Extension means allowing multiple users and subaccounts to operate from the same master account. It is the ideal solution for companies that own a B2B store.
- As the account’s owner, you are able to create different level of access permissions for a large number of users.
- You can customize the account to your liking and needs.
- The extension allows you to choose from five various permission levels, in order to give users access.
- For example, you can grant one user access to purchase products, while another user is only allowed to see the orders and the customers.
Here`s how you can create and manage a multi user account fast and easy:
As the account’s owner, you have a wide variety of options to choose from. You can:
- Restrict subaccounts from creating orders
- Allow sub accounts to create orders for a predefined number of products or a period of time
- Ask for cart approval permission from subaccounts
- Set a specific master account for every subaccount
2. The Order Approval Manager Extension:
This extension gives customers the option to complete and order before paying for it. This way, they can forward the purchase so another person can approve and pay for it. B2B stores give companies the possibility to create their orders and forward them to the accounting department.
The way the Order Approval Manager works is simple. The accounting department (or the payer) receives a notification with a link that leads to the order. They also have the permission to edit the cart, remove or add other items before making the payment.
