B2C site compared to B2Bsite


Companies and individual entrepreneurs involved in e-commerce are operating in three-dimensional environment comprised with ethical , legal and regulatory norms and policies .

this ability to manage ethical legal and regulatory procedures concerning both customers and businesses (Schneider , 2004

Ethical conduct and procedures are especially important in the B2B framework because businesses selling to other businesses treat their customers more as partners and rely on reciprocal information sharing for developing mutually beneficial partnerships . Because the relationship is more extensive , every time there is an exchange of information or data , it must be meticulously tracked and labeled as general business or confidential as appropriate

Large printers such as Fry Communications , for instance , which print for several different publishers , solve this problem through issuing multiple usernames and passwords under each different publisher ‘s online account . This allows multiple editors , production mangers and artists to submit work and check the progress of their particular publication at Fry ‘s various facilities simply by logging in under their companies ‘ accounts using their individual usernames and passwords

In B2C business relationships , international laws often come into play because of the wide reach that the internet creates
