In this paper we consider the purchasing operation tools used to catalog, request-for-quote (RFQ), order, prepare quotation and receipt of goods, and to study and design the Blockchain system for the B2B portal for E-procurement. The B2B portal system is implemented on the seller B2B information system infrastructure to facilitate the procurement operations on both the user and seller sides. Answers were collected from 19 e-procurement personnel from home hub buyer database who were anticipated to be end-users of the system. The raw data we analyzed were derived from the questionnaires distributed, completed and returned by 100% of the participants. An SPSS, Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, program was used to calculate the level of agreement concerning the users' opinions on which necessary features that facilitate the users of the B2B procurement portal should be developed and the satisfaction of trial users. The "End-users" opinion on which necessary features that facilitate the users of the B2B procurement portal should be developed shows that they strongly agreed that the "RFQ features that users can submit to request for quotation for the selected products under the desired buying options and conditions". The system prototype trials showed that the most satisfaction was on the "All proposed tools deliver high usability and capabilities".
