A blog post about online stores on SOTE.
Information about online stores, online sales, and the e-commerce industry. Legal aspects of conducting business online. News and updates about the SOTESHOP software.
In the e-commerce industry, we often come across the abbreviations b2c and b2b. It is worth knowing what they differ and what consequences the appropriate determination of the business profile and customers has. It is also worth knowing new types of sales such as c2c - used for example on classifieds portals, f2c appearing in dropshipping and b2e - used within the company.
With the development of the e-commerce industry, new terms are emerging to describe different people, such as: influencer, shopper, blogger, vlogger, YouTuber. Find out what they mean and how to use this knowledge in an online store.
In Polish law, in accordance with European standards, the consumer is a special figure and is surrounded by legal protection. A consumer is considered to be an individual who makes a transaction with a business not directly related to their economic or professional activity. In other words, purchases are made only and exclusively for individuals, not for their professional activities. In opposition to the consumer stands the entrepreneur, who sells something as a professional.
