Introducing some major classifications of E-Commerce Business
In one of my articles, I have explained what e-commerce is. I said it in that article that e-commerce has to do with buying and selling of products and services online. Aside from the general idea that e-commerce has to do with buying and selling online. I want to state it here that such buying and selling are of different categories. In this article, I want to discuss some of the major classifications of e-commerce business that we have online today. 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 to Business model. In this type of model, two independent organizations are providing services to each other online. Take for example a Hosting company providing domain name service to another organization that wants to be online. Such services are referred to as the B2B model of business.
#2 Business to Consumers model as one of the major classifications of e-commerce business
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 model as one of the major classifications of e-commerce 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 model as one of the major classifications of e-commerce business
Under this type of model, two consumers can render services to 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 products. eBay does not own those products but they are able to assist such organizations to come together.
