Customize Zoho CRM for B2C

In Zoho CRM, Business-to-Business (B2B) the business process data is populated. However, customers can customize the CRM business process for Business-to-Consumer (B2C) by using the Zoho CRM Customization tools.

In a typical B2C business process, adding the Company's Name is optional, so before using Zoho CRM for B2C type scenario, the System Administrator has to customize Leads, Contacts, Potentials, Quotes, Orders, and Invoices modules.

Best Examples of B2C Companies: amazon.comebay.com, or any company directly selling products to consumers.

B2C - New Business
B2C - Up-Selling and Cross-Selling
