With thousands of industry-specific B2B marketplace platforms in operation and one third of B2B buyers completing more than 50% of their purchases in a marketplace environment, one thing is abundantly clear: B2B marketplaces are here to stay.

As the space becomes increasingly saturated with competitive alternatives, B2B marketplaces must offer the best experience to ensure stickiness of buyers and sellers alike.

To protect their cash flow, sellers want payment upfront, while buyers expect access to trade credit, leaving marketplaces stuck in the middle with their working capital exposed to fraud and credit risk. 

To do all this while handling growing transaction volumes and reaching growth goals, marketplaces need solutions designed for their platforms. With Hokodo, B2B marketplaces can offer Buy Now, Pay Later options that benefit buyers and sellers alike.
