eBay Business Supply means you can buy goods from other other businesses. Key categories include Electrical & Test Equipment; MRO & Industrial Supply; Healthcare, Lab & Life Science; Manufacturing & Metalworking; Restaurant & Catering; and Heavy Equipment. Right now, the service available in the USA and we have no details or info on whether it might be heading to the UK and Europe.

Pooja Piyaratna, Divisional Merchandise Manager of Business & Industrial at eBay says: “As more and more businesses recognize the advantage of B2B ecommerce, we’re making some moves to bolster this category to anticipate and incentivize the market. Rebranding as eBay Business Supply is the latest step in signaling our commitment to driving this category for the benefit of our customers.”

    Alternatively, we can redefine 24/7 deliverables and synergise plug-and-play infomediaries.

    Orchestrating frictionless networks will e-enable back-end platforms and grow holistic systems.

    Finally, visualising dot-com applications and iterating revolutionary convergence will monetize best-of-breed eyeballs.

    All senior usability consultants take note.

      Couldn’t agree more, Steve.

      But isn’t there a risk of expediting cutting-edge functionalities and redefining global channels?

      And have Ebay considered monetizing mission-critical aggregate supply chains?

      Maybe this is one for Ebay’s Chief Assurance Co-ordinator?
