Default What Needs A B2B Online Shop In North America To Be Successful?

Hello together!
Im from Germany and I do a small project for my final exam to industrial clerk.

The topic is a "Requirement analysis of a B2B (B2B means transactions between business to business) Online shop in North America" and I find a lot of points, but for me it is not enough! ;-)

Therefore I want ask this special question into the free world, because I think you, speciel the people who live in America can answer a lot of points.
I think I find all about the standard things. I am talking about the functions/requirments I may have forgotten, because they are special. For example, in Germany it is normally to ask at registration after birth. In America, however, is not asked. Or in America you use other shipping methods and payment methods in a Online shop. Or on which points are placed a lot of emphasis?

So maybe you could tell me some interesting and important points! :-)
Just write what comes to your mind! ;-) The more the better!

Best regards!

Ok, no answers until now.
This is my first thread. Did I forget something important? Or did I choose maybe the wrong subtopic? But I think im right here at "eCommerce". :-)

Default There are a few things

First, and most importantly, is customers. If you are running a restaurant, the one thing you want is a hungry crowd. It is the same with an online business: you want a crowd of businesses who want your services.
Next: trust. Online is a tough place to do business. "Trust" is the most important commodity you have.
Next: make it easy for other businesses to do business with you.
Finally: have a marketing plan that gives you the strategy and tactics to attract other businesses to your site.
I hope this helps.
David

Hey there,

One of the most important things is to make meaning out of you online relationships and business.

What is it you are trying to do for the world (through your service)?

For FedEx delivery that might mean: "absolutely positively must be there overnight"

Okay.
