What does B2C stand for in finance?


In the worlds of finance and commerce, B2C stands for business-to-consumer. B2C transactions are those in which a business sells a product directly to a consumer. For example, when you buy a PC from Dell, you're taking part in a B2C transaction.

In contrast, the acronym B2B describes transactions conducted between businesses. For example, if Dell were to sell that same PC to Best Buy, that would be a B2B transaction. While some businesses specialize in B2B commerce, many conduct some combination of B2B and B2C transactions.
