It enables buyers to quote their own prices for specific goods or services. A consumer posts his request with a set budget online and, companies review the customers’ requirements and bids out the project. For example, pest control services, taxi services, doorstep food delivery, etc.
4. Consumer to consumer (C2C)
It facilitates the online transaction of goods or services between two people. Consumer to consumer (C2 C) involves the electronically facilitated transactions between consumers through a third party. Common consumer posts an item for sale and other consumers bid to purchase it. The sites are only intermediaries, just to match the consumers.
