Now is the time to take a fresh look at how best to classify inventory in the world of e-commerce. Business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce continues its double-digit, year-on-year growth as sales patterns shift from conventional avenues such as stores to online channels.
Online shopping or e-shopping is a form of electronic commerce which allows consumers to directly buy goods or services from a seller over the Internet using a web browser.

Mobile commerce (or m-commerce) describes purchasing from an online retailer's mobile optimized online site or app.
