One advantage of C2C is that sellers can reach a large group of consumers, and vice versa. It provides consumers with a platform to directly transact and interact with one another without the intervention of the service provider. As a business, one of the benefits of a C2C e-commerce solution is that you only need to provide the platform to facilitate buyer and seller interaction. The tedious processes involved in completing a sale such as managing product inventory, order processing and shipping etc are done away with. You as a service provider can earn a commission from every sale.
C2C is expected to increase in the future because it minimises the costs of using third parties. However, it does suffer from some problems, such as lack of quality control or payment guarantees and there can sometimes be difficulties in making credit-card payments.
