provides a platform where consumers can sell products or services to each other. The main goal of C2C is
to help buyers find sellers. This benefits both the parties. A buyer finds a product or a service which would
have otherwise been hard to find and a seller benefits by selling the product or a service. The platforms for
such transactions are usually provided by third parties, which act as intermediaries between the sellers and
buyers. For instance, online portals such as E -bay facilitates sellers to post their goods or services online
