The creation of an online store became an obligation and not an option for some types of business, because e-commerce has many positive aspects for all actors involved: businesses, consumers and society.
Types of E-commerce
Business to Business, these are commercial relations exclusive to businesses, it means that consumers are not involved. In this B2B e-commerce there are three categories:
- The marketplace focused on accepting sellers who request buyers.
- The market where the purchasing power market researches for suppliers.
- The market of intermediaries that focus on a bilateral agreement between buyers and sellers.
Business to Employee, this trade realizes its focus within its organization as a result it makes their own employees your first buyers, furthermore you can encourage them with different prices for them, or offer packages never seen before outside the company, this also helps the employees themselves to voluntarily speak well of the company.
Business to Consumer, this type of trade is the one that covers most electronic markets. The transaction is between a virtual business and a buyer / consumer who is interested in the product / service and buys it, this can be done through one of the accounts to which the consumer is affiliated and on the website that the seller has.
Consumer to Consumer, in this segment of electronic commerce you can talk about something similar to the sale of garage but with the difference is that it is virtual, thus reaching many people without leaving home or putting products outside, it is said from consumer to consumer because in general the same buyers later become sellers, an example of this would be www.amazon.com, www.ebay.com and in Latin America www.mercadolibre.com
