There are four main types of eCommerce business models based on certain factors, such as who the end user is. These are:


B2B | business to business

In this model, a company sells products or services to another company. Generally, these transactions have a higher volume, a longer sales cycle and are recurring.


B2C | business to consumer

This model describes a business that sells products or services directly to consumers and is one of the most common business types.


C2C | consumer to consumer

This model presents a situation where a consumer sells directly to another consumer in an online marketplace, giving them more control over their sale. Some recognized examples are eBay and Mercado Libre.


C2B | consumer to business
