E-commerce (or electronic-commerce) refers to a business that works entirely on the Internet.

For example websites such as Amazon.com, Flipkart.com, and SnapDeal are all covered under e-commerce sites .

There are mainly two major forms of E-commerce: –

1) Business-to-Consumer (B2C)

2) Business-to-Business (B2B).

While companies such as Amazon.com mainly do business directly with consumers, there are some other companies that sell goods and services exclusively to other businesses, they have no direct connection with consumers.

These words “e-business” and “e-tailing” are used with e-commerce according to the need of the hour. All these words have the same meaning, while they are used again and again in different forms to confuse people.
