B2B marketplace MerXu launches in Central and Eastern Europe
MerXu , a new ecommerce platform for B2B customers, has entered the market in Central and Eastern Europe. It’s co-founded by three former Allegro executives.
The online trading platform aims at companies from the CEE region that operate in the B2B sector, both small and medium-sized companies as well as large enterprises.
Focus on industrial goods
MerXu focuses primarily on the trade of industrial goods, with categories such as chemicals, construction, electrical engineering, installation, and industrial products. The ecommerce platform currently operates in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, and Estonia. In the coming month, it plans to expand to other markets in this region.
The company says it wants to facilitate trade between companies in the CEE region. To make this possible, it’s equipped with a communicator with the possibility of translating messages from potential partners into local languages.
The company also emphasizes that the platform isn’t limited to the wholesale trade. Goods can also be purchased in single copies.

Raist (former CEO of Estonian Osta).
According to Retail Market News, MerXu has plans to offer some additional services, like legal aid, and tax and financial services like factoring and trade credit.
