PunchOut: Seamless Purchasing for B2B Buyers

PunchOut is a B2B eCommerce term, which defines the electronic communication protocol between a vendor's web store front and a buyer's eCommerce application. The buyer leaves ("punches out") of their company's system or e-procurement application and goes to the supplier's online catalog to locate and add items to their shopping cart, while their application transparently maintains connection with the web site and gathers pertinent information and submits the order, using via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
