Most people don’t have a clear understanding of the difference between e-commerce and e-business and think they are the same in meaning, In fact, they are not, but closely related.

E-Commerce

E-commerce or electronic commerce is the process of and buying and selling products or services through the online store. This means there is no physical interaction and the payment transaction is done over the internet.

E-Commerce models:

Business to Business - B2B

This involves selling products or services between two companies.

Business to Consumer - B2C

This involves a company selling products or services to individual consumers. This is a very common e-commerce business model. This model of e-commerce business has increased significantly due to the lockdown because of its convenience.

Consumer to Consumer - C2C

This involves selling products or services between one customer and another. Basically, these take place with the help of a third party. For instance, E-bay, Amazon as an online marketplace.

Consumer to Business - C2B

This is a type of business where the consumers sell their own product or provide service to a company to enhance its business capabilities to gain an advantage in the market.

A quick example is freelancer platforms like Upwork, fever, People per hour, etc. Where freelancer provide their services and any business can buy their services if it will cover their needs.

E-Business

E-Business or electronic business is almost similar to e-commerce, but it is more than just selling and buying products or services online.

E-business encompasses a wide range of online businesses such as ordering and processing, supply chain management, etc. What we can say is e-commerce can be constructed as a part of e-business.

E-Business models:

Business to Business - Pureplay

This is the largest e-Business model, that basically generates revenue through pure business-to-business transactions. Those companies only operate through the internet and offer one type of particular product to gain a large market share. That means both seller and buyer are business entities.

This e-business model may involve manufacturers to whole sellers, retailer to retailer, or whole sellers to retailers.

This model has more business stability because of the nature of most company’s business models.

Bricks and Clicks

This e-business model includes a merchant with a physical retail outlet and runs their business both ways online and offline. This means merchants give the customer both ways to shop online and offline.

Now back to our question, what is the difference between e-commerce and e-business?

The procedure of selling and buying online is simply called e-commerce. However, e-business is not only about buying and selling online. Shortly any business which is conducted online is called e-business. For instance, an information Technology Company may request to upgrade the electronic billing system which is an activity that takes place over the internet. That is the reason we said e-commerce can be constructed as a part of e-business.

Let’s keep this in this way, e-commerce refers to any type of online business transaction which involves money, however, e-business involves transaction with money as well as online supporting activities. I hope that is clear now!

Thanks a lot for providing such valuable information to this forum.

E-commerce avoids buying and selling only online but E-Business allows both online and physical buying and selling.
