Traditional commerce businesses are split into different models, such as B2C, B2B, C2B, and C2C, among others, with a fixed market strategy for the model to achieve success. Similarly, businesses in Digital Commerce have been conducting parallel strategies on their eCommerce platforms that run their storefronts under different business models with model-specific use cases.

The recent market shift has allowed businesses and customers to adapt to different eCommerce websites, leading to a rapid increase in customer expectations. This sudden change has resulted in the blurring of lines that govern these models, with digital businesses looking to benefit from both the B2B and B2C models, thereby adapting to the growing customer needs that impact their future business margins.
