Number of businesses leverage the power and flexibility of ecommerce. They are encouraging their customers, B2B and B2C alike, to move to this low cost channel. But for B2B ecommerce players, it does not end with new customers. Customers expect the same experience they have in B2C on a B2B platform. For example B2B customers , on the ecommerce store, prefer to purchase on credit and pay according to the traditional payment terms.
B2B ecommerce players need a solution which both admin and customers can use to complete pending transactions and payments online. The best way to address this challenge is to build a module that bridges the functional gap between Magento and ERP. i95Dev’s Bill Pay module is a perfect example of this. This module helps the customer to purchase against credit, to enhance user experience of customers. For the store admin, it gives visibility of account payables and receivables, pending either with customer or store owner. In addition to doing away with the manual processes, it gives visibility and flexibility into credit and cash management process.
Designed specifically for B2B customers, the i95Dev’s Bill Pay Module allows customers to access all necessary information from a unified desktop. Additionally, it enables the admins to serve customers quickly and efficiently, to view account details, previous transactions, pending bill payments, and pay (partially or completely) right from Magento. Even orders, with pending payments, placed in Dynamics GP are synced from Dynamics GP to Magento, which can then be paid using the Bill Pay module.
