In this article, I want to discuss some of the forms of buying and selling that we can have in e-commerce. This will enable you to identify the various models of e-commerce that we have online. Follow me as we jump into that discussion in this article.




#1 Business to Business

One of the major forms of E-commerce business is Business toBusiness model. In this type of model, two independent organisations are providing services to each other online. Take for example a Hosting company providing domain name service to another organisation that wants to be online.  Such services are referred to asB2B model of business.


#2 Business to Consumers

In this type of model is providing online products and services to an end user. Such recipient has not established businesses but they are just individuals that have one or two things to do online. That for example an individual enjoying email services from an established business like Google or Microsoft.


#3 Consumer to Business

In this type of business model, individuals that are not registered as a business are seen providing business services to established businesses. They are also paid based on services rendered to such businesses. A good example of such is individual bloggers providing ad services to Google through Google Adsense.


#4 Consumer to Consumer

Under this type of model, two consumers can render service3sto each other with the business providing an avenue through which they are able to come together. A good example is Ebay where one can buy fairly used products or sell other product. Ebay does not own those products but they are able to assist such organisations to come together.
