Abstract

The business achievement among consumer via e-commerce is getting more important at the present time. In this paper, we propose to make use of fuzzy logic with the aim to improve the search and cataloguing of goods and services in Consumer-to-Consumer electronic commerce (E-commerce) portals (e.g. ebay). These portals are the media through most the electronic transactions among consumers are conduced today. We suggest a method that tries to adapt to users’ real needs. It allows to buyer carry out searches in an imprecise way and to the seller to deal with catalogues of items (goods or services) described also in a lacking exactness way.
