As one of the key applied forms on Internet, C2C E-commerce has been growing at a very high speed in China in recent years. Starting from the perspective that C2C E-commerce consumers pursue low price while retailers try to decrease the cost, by using the methods of sampling survey and case study, the paper will discuss issues about goods delivery cost, delivery time and delivery quality in C2C E-commerce and compare them with B2B E-commerce. According to the result of research, the paper predicts the future development trend of China C2C E-commerce.
