I think this is the biggest flaw in the B2B daily deal sites, running just like the consumer ones. Firstly, we are expected to discount our products/services by 50%, and then we have to give 50% of what is left to the site!

B2B does not have the margins retail/consumer goods do to offer this, so what happens, prices just get ridiulously inflated.

‘Get your Google Places page for just $99, usually $349’

Seriously, how could any business ever have charged that much to create a google places page.

I would much prefer to see these sites actually take a business approach to this, and focus on offering good deals, even if it is only a 10% discount off the normal price.
