B2C eCommerce is an acronym for online transactions between companies and consumers. Hence buying trendy glasses in the Charlie Temple webshop or beautiful jeans in de Garcia webshop are good examples of B2C eCommerce.
Besides B2C eCommerce, B2B eCommerce exists as well. This means the transaction takes place between two companies. An example is a wholesaler selling fresh produce to a restaurant or supermarket.

Goossens makes the ultimate living experience accessible to the consumer. With their omnichannel strategy, this applies both offline and online.
