According to media reports, U.S.-based retailer Walmart has launched a new B2B e-commerce website to serve India’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The new online service is currently being trialled in Hyderabad and Lucknow, and is scheduled to run nationwide by early 2015.
The platform currently serves Walmart’s existing users of its cash-and-carry stores in India, which is a limited service to registered members. It will also help to take orders from small business owners that are located more than 20 kilometres away from Walmart’s retail outlets.
