Now #Wal-Mart India B2B e-commerce platform is available in Guntur and Vijayawada

Wal-Mart India will open its B2B e-commerce platform to members of Best Price Modern Wholesale stores in Guntur and Vijayawada on October 1. It will take the tally of e-commerce platforms to four stores in the country.

So far, the B2B e-commerce platform is available for members of Lucknow and Hyderabad Best Price stores. The members can shop and book orders online.

As a virtual store, the e-commerce platform will provide a similar assortment of products as the brick and mortar Best Price Modern Wholesale stores including a select variety of fresh fruits and vegetables introduced recently.

Krish Iyer, President and CEO, Wal-Mart India, said, “Due to the convenience of online shopping, our reseller (Kirana) members are glad that they are now able to spend more time in their shops with their customers. We’re excited that we’re consistently meeting our members’ shopping needs and serving them in ways that can help them save money and live better.”

Wal-Mart India’s cash & carry business is a B2B format and hence only registered members of the Best Price Modern Wholesale stores in these respective cities will be eligible to transact online. Eligible establishments (resellers, kirana shop owners, hotels, restaurants, caterers and offices and institutions) in the catchment areas can transact only after registering as members.
