However, in order to synchronize and coordinate the transactions between international sellers and local buyers, CBEC stakeholders need to build an online platform that link between the demand and supply markets. Thus, the Two-Sided Platform models where both buyers and sellers on both sides can share necessary information to promote a synchronous and coordinated market transactions. The two-sided platform can enable streamline coordination of products information, pricing and logistics transactions which could result in an optimal endto-end CBEC supply chain activities. CBEC stakeholders such as suppliers, consumers, logistic and warehouse companies can gain advantages by expanding the network externality where all parties share relevant information with one another through the two-sided platform.
