An eCommerce transaction that takes place between your business and a consumer is commonly referred to as B2C, or business-to consumer. B2C is conducted by companies such as Amazon.com, which allow consumers to purchase products online, via the web. There is usually no intermediary service involved when it comes to B2C, as the sale or purchase is completed electronically and immediately.
Business-to-consumer is not the only form of eCommerce, there is also business-to-business, or, B2B. B2B can either be open to all interested parties, for example, commodity exchange, or it can be limited to pre-qualified participants, such as the private electronic market.
