Business to Consumer ECommerce Websites – B2C

In Irish online shopping context B2C (business to consumer) online ECommerce trading activity was slow to take off, as at first consumers had doubts about the security of credit card transactions and payments however this has now gone full circle and has increased immensely now consumers have understanding of secure payment methods like Paypal.

At first in Ireland B2C trading focused on  Hotel Reservations CDs, software and books – items which were compact and easily shipped and where prices could be slashed once the retailer’s cut was taken out of the margin. Amazon books or Hotel Reservations would be a good example of this. These products and services pushed the perimeters of the market out for goods bought on-line, making it easy fast and proffitable for the consumer to have instant booking confirmation and businesses to see instant streamlined sales.

A Hotel Reservation or a Music CD’s are relatively generic products. A CD bought in the US will have the same music and quality as one bought locally in store and the same hotel room at the same hotel will still be the same just maybe they are not being charged a 25% commission from a third party hotel reservation website so there is no doubt in the consumers mind exactly what the product is. This is not the case with shoes fishing tackle or jewellery, where sizes can confuse the purchasers decision and where size selection and choices focus strongly in the customers purchasing decision.

The Ebay online shopping website has really transform purchasing methods on the web. Many people have made their first ECcommerce website transaction on Ebay. Many people sell on the Ebay shopping website too, opening the doors to the work-from-home/website shipping model of ECommerce shopping websites.

All though B2C transactions were localized or hard to find products can be extremely strong. If you have a unique product that is highly relevant to a unique market, you are likely to do very well with an ECommerce website shop that will enhance your physical business profile and increase your methods for customers to buy.

Although ECommerce website shops increase sales rapidly on the Internet, the volume of turnover figures continue to fail short of industry estimates due to the retailers hesitation in selling online rather than consumers purchasing online. But as retail web sites become more navigable and privacy policies are displayed, more people will be drawn to internet based ECommerce purchasing by lower prices and convenience.


Business to Business ECommerce Websites – B2B

Business to business (B2B) is the exchange of products or services between businesses rather than between businesses and consumers, Example being a wholesaler selling to a retail high street shop.

Early interest focused on the growth of retailing on the Internet, forecasts are that B2B revenue will far exceed B2C revenue in the near future as it is a proven way to reduce retails costs with bulk purchasing power and streamline delivery and storage processes, One of our Clients received a €750 order from a retailer the day after we turned his ECommerce Website Shop live by a client he had done business with before but did not know they had the goods in stock.
