If you have been to Business then B2B portals shouldn’t be new to your dictionary but when it comes to a B2B portal which is India-centric,one needs to think twice to remember any well-known portal having strong roots in Indian market. I run a coaching center in Lajpat nagar and availing the services of justdial and v-customer.

Joining the same online battlefield is the new contender called Bizedia,which promises to be a pioneer in indian B2B portal sector in the long run.Apart from the usual business listing feature,it offers its users to post classifieds,promote their businesses and conduct e-commerce transactions through this portal.
