In the US, retailers and distributors are used to shopping online on ecommerce websites and paying by credit card to restock their stores. Companies selling industrial goods sell online spare parts, accessories and small machinery.

In short, in the United States, selling online is now a common practice, also in transactions between companies.

There are different approaches to online selling. Companies must choose the online selling strategy that best aligns with their market. Below we are listing some of the most commonly adopted strategies to sell online in the United States, using an ecommerce website:

  • Direct sale to the consumer and payment by credit card;
  • Creation of a dedicated area on the website and sale only to authorised customers, who have received a password to access the secure area. It is possible to create different price lists according to the customer connected;
  • Development of a secure area for sales agent/representatives only: they can access the secure area to create and place orders online, directly from their PC;
  • Creation of a dedicated area on the website, from which customers can directly place orders.
