In summary, it appears that the 'transactions' comment is emotive and arguable. Is it also true that whether the answer falls one way or the other has no relevance to the topic or the understanding of the term B2B ... in which case we could remove it. (talk) 16:10, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Urgently delete - so very, very incorrect!![edit]

Where it says that the number of transactions between B2B are higher than B2C... NO. WRONG. You can't make a statement like that, because it depends on the industry. It is true in SOME cases, wrong in many others. For example, in MANY retail businesses, from electronics stores to local "Milkbars" as we call them in Australia (like convenience stores), you usually have ONE supplier, but THOUSANDS of customers. So this is just untrue. -- 22:09, 8 July 2011 (GMT+10) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

The point is that there are several possible downstream actions for each consumer purchase. A candy bar may be bought from a distribution company, which bought it from a manufacturer, which bought the ingredients from 30 different companies, which bought from farms, and so on. A souce would be nice on the statement, though. Kuru (talk) 17:04, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

does this article[edit]

does this article sound as if it were machine-translated from another language? --Aniboy2000 18:25, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Well t sounds like it was translated from German. I have edited th article today and I hope it´s more readable now. It may need some extension because I think the B2B marketing is not covered enough in Wikipedia. --Elmschrat 21:39, 26 August 2006 CET

Too much spam[edit]

Too much spam, referencing external websites when academic sources are available. This needs to be fixed. QuinnHK 21:09, 11 October 2007 (UTC)


Somebody deleted[edit]

Somebody deleted all the really good b2b marketing content so I've reinstated it.

Also, it said "It is a term that originated and is almost exclusively used in electronic commerce and usually takes the form of automated processes between trading partners." which isn't even remotely true as b2b is used widely outside of that field, so I fixed that too.

Lousy article[edit]


It is a very bad page, I am sorry to be critic and not to solve it, but it is one of the worst pages about business to business I have never seen- —Preceding unsigned comment added by Marc.sole (talkcontribs) 21:14, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree. This page is pretty awful all right. Did somebody just paste the text from an e-commerce consultancy's website or something? It's bizarre, boring, uninformative, and misleading. I've tagged this for a complete rewrite. Fang2415 (talk) 10:36, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

B2b means just business to business, not just electronic commerce. When General Motors buys tires from Goodyear that's a B2b transaction. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:23, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

About contradictionary in term "volume"[edit]

How does volume of all b-transactions of one entity may be more, than volume of all c-transactions?

May be instead of volume author means volume of all transactions of entity and all of it`s suppliers and all of they supplyers???

Or it`s mean by volume that it`s a number of operations or deals?

It`s a strange statement anyway.

Please help to rewrite it those, who knew english well also as economics.

Does "SME" refer to Small and medium-sized enterprises? (talk) 17:22, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Just read the source, and it appears that it does refer to small and medium-sized enterprises, so I will link to the aforementioned article. (talk) 12:24, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
