Types of E-Business Models

B2C
The business-to-consumer, or B2C, model of e-business
sells products directly to retail consumers online.
Amazon.com is an example of a B2C model. The ebusiness has only an online identity through which it
offers a range of products to customers.
B2B
The business-to-business, or B2B, model involves
companies using the Internet to conduct transactions with
one other. B2B e-business accounts for more than 90
percent of all electronic commerce, according to the U.S.
Census Bureau.

Types of E-Business
Models
C2B
Consumer-to-business, or C2B, is a unique e-business model in
which consumers create value and demand for products.
Reverse auctions are a common characteristic of C2B models,
in which consumers drive transactions and offer their own
prices for products.
C2C

consumers to behave as buyers and sellers in third-partyfacilitated online marketplaces. Craigslist is an example of a

Conclusion

I was surprised to discover how many studies and analysis


there are behind e-commerce. However, all the fundamental
things required for conducting an excellent work do not differ
greatly from the "real" ones.

The Internet represents a completely new and profitable way


to do business, provided that all the requirements needed are
met. For example, regarding a website, it is illegal to
discriminate people with disabilities; a company may be sued
for it.

The Internet is a parallel online world where all the resources


are not fully exploited and where consumers may gain
advantages. Here, companies may increase their profits further
and users may find the desired product or service easily
without the hassle of shopping around.
