You may have heard about Avo, a super app by Nedbank that enables businesses to sell their products and services to consumers securely and conveniently, online. With capabilities such as online shopping in multiple product categories, grocery shopping, take-aways, and home services, to mention just a few, Avo is a one-stop-shop for more than half a million customers.
Now for the big news…
Avo Business will soon be launching its B2B Marketplace, designed to enable businesses of all sizes to connect securely and grow our economy. Whether your business is looking for new ways to distribute
products, or for more effective and efficient ways to source raw material or stock, the Marketplace connects your business with other like-minded businesses, anywhere in SA, regardless of your sector.
Avo’s B2B Marketplace has a dedicated ‘Buy from Small Businesses’ section for business buyers to support small businesses. While small business storefronts and products will appear in general search results on the platform, in this section, ONLY small businesses' products and storefronts are shown. It is also possible to sign-up and use the marketplace without paying monthly subscription fees.
Avo Business exclusively invites all SimplyBiz businesses that sell goods or products to pre-register on the platform and set up their storefronts in preparation for the public launch - coming soon.
In this first release, businesses will only be able to trade goods or products, with services to follow in the near future.
How does it work?
- Register your company and create your storefront - any delegated employee can do this
- Select either self-delivery or Avo Logistics
- Avo Business will verify your product listing or storefront and publish it once approved
- Receive orders - purchases work based on escrow, to protect both buyers and sellers
- Manage your sales strategy by adding products and managing pricing, promotions and all sales-related aspects of your business
