Business-to-Consumer (B2C)

Definition

What is Business-to-Consumer (B2C)?

The Business-to-Consumer or B2C is a term that means the goods or services are sold directly from the business to the end-users who buy them. A B2C company refers to businesses that sell directly to customers.

The Business-to-Consumer (B2C) model includes businesses selling directly to individual customers rather than other commercial enterprises. 

B2C has historically applied to mall shopping, restaurant dining, pay-per-view movies, and advertisements. As years went by, the advent of the Internet gave birth to an entirely new B2C business medium in the form of e-commerce or the sale of products and services over the Web.
