However, there is one thing, which every international trader, willing to a b2b website must know and that is, creating an account on a b2b website may be easy but it may cost you somewhere between the range of $300 and $3000. Unlike using a search engine, this platform requires you to spend some money.

Now, making a list of buyers from the search engine results may take a lot of time due to the abundance of results. However, the search results from b2b websites will give you a much more organic result and that too in quite a less time. Therefore, using these results, you must make a list of all the buyers you find on these b2b websites as well.
The Screening Phase
Using these two methods for searching for buyers will result in you making quite a big list of buyers from all over the world. However, not every buyer on this list, which you have made is, the right buyer for you. Therefore, in this phase you need to shortlist the names of all the companies or buyers, which you believe are the right one’s for you.
How do I decide, which buyer is right for me? Yes, a question like this may pop in your mind however, this is not something to worry about. See, what you need to comprehend is, that being a supplier or seller of one particular product, you need a buyer, who is willing and interested to buy your goods in your desired quantity and quality from you. Furthermore, you also need to make sure that the buyers you are shortlisting are also willing to pay you the right price or at least a price, which is near to expectation.
Make a Choice & Finalize the Deal

Finally, the last thing you need to look at is, the price your buyers are ready to pay you. After that, it is simply a matter of picking out the best buyer, who is placing an order for just the right quantity, which you can easily manage in the long run and is also offering you the best price as well.
