In years past, traditional B2B businesses placed orders and managed sales on spreadsheets, over the phone, or through a homegrown ERP system. While this may be a manageable process as a small business, it can quickly get out of hand as a business grows and customers evolve.  

Today, B2B businesses turn to powerful eCommerce solutions that can not only meet customer needs, but also automate ordering. Orders are the cornerstone of B2B eCommerce, and as such, they are the central concept within OrderCloud. Orders are the object where buyers, sellers, products, payments, and almost everything come together to form a business transaction.

Because OrderCloud is built with modern, MACH architecture, submitting an order is fast and easy using the OrderCloud Javascript SDK.
