Along with online shopping has further influence on retailing, more types of products sold online will usher rapid development.

Huidian Research takes a view that B2C will continue to be the main impetus for the development of China’s online shopping market. China’s online shopping market has experienced more than ten years’ development, so the consumption concept of online shoppers has changed, customers will pursue the better products quality when shopping online. In terms of credibility and quality, B2C can obtain online shopper’s trust easier compared with C2C. While some B2C shopping websites, such as Tmall, JD and Suning, also utilized the advantages of C2C; they guaranteed the product quality, at the same time, improved the richness of products as well as satisfying consumer’s needs by means of attracting high-grade websites or shops.

Huidian Research also holds a view that the competitive landscape of “two superiors, many strong ones” will be changed along with time. Tmall and JD are two typical representatives of B2C platform and B2C self-supporting enterprises respectively, their leading positions are difficult to change in short time. And other B2C companies would obtain their market shares by virtue of technology, flow or supply chain advantage.
