Business To Customer (B2C)

An example of a B2C transaction would be a person buying a pair of shoes from a retailer. The transactions that led to the shoes being available for purchase, that is the purchase of the leather, laces, rubber, etc. as well as the sale of the shoe from the shoemaker to the retailer would be considered (B2B) transactions.

Investopedia explains Customer To Customer - C To C
Many C2C businesses have online operations. Online auctions and classifieds such as Ebay and Craig's List are examples of very successful customer to customer business models. These sites don't look to directly sell goods to their members, instead the customers are exchanging with other customers.
