What are the advantages of C2C commerce?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi everyone, I wondered what makes up a consumer-to-consumer market and where I could find some website examples?

C2C commerce do not have to incur extra costs, their purpose is to simply supply a platform and take a percentage of sales to supply that platform. There are no costs associated with this save for operation and licensing, as the business simply facilitates the communication and transactions between its customers.

The customer-to-customer business model has many advantages since customers sell to other customers directly eliminating middlemen which increases profit. It's also convenient to boh customers where the customer selling the product can sell from the comfort of their home and the customer buying can have a wide range of products to choose from.

Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, eBay are some of the sites which enable the C2C business model.

Any marketplace where consumers can interact, buy and sell their products to other potential consumers directly comes under the consumer-to-consumer (C2C) commerce. Both the buyer and seller register themselves on the platform to get the business done with less to no middleman involvement. Some C2C examples are eBay or craigslist dot com.

Among the number of advantages associated with e-commerce businesses, here are three main benefits of C2C e-commerce at your disposal:

  1. C2C commerce makes it easy for the sellers to sell their second-hand or pre-loved products that are not useful to them anymore.
  2. Less to no marketing and inventory management costs are involved.
  3. Since the transaction takes place directly and there is no middleman involved in the process, the seller's profit margin is relatively high.

One worth noting fact here is that nothing comes without a downside—The same is the case with C2C commerce. There is less quality control in the C2C business model since the C2C platform is not responsible for product production. Also, there is a greater chance of a scam. Your job is to leverage the benefits while keeping a bird's eye view to minimize the crapshoots.
