It refers to the buying and selling of products or services and can be B2B (business-to-business), B2C (business-to-consumer), C2C (consumer to consumer) or C2B (consumer to business).

Although the vast majority of websites involved in eCommerce are online stores, websites that offer services and pages that sell non-physical products online can also be listed among those who practice eCommerce (also referred to as e-business).
