Abstract—Most social media e-commerce platforms lack systematic logistics, financial flows, and information flows in Taiwan. This study explored the economy of closed social media fan groups, which represent a type of customer-to-customer (C2C) model. By the analysis of the current situation, we propose a three-step process that sets up the integration models for 1) the channel and stock, 2) supplier orders, and 3) consumers. The compare As-Is and To-Be logistics on the one hand and cash flows and information flows on the other, and offer corresponding plans and suggestions. The study also develops a preliminary version of the web and app for members of the community to buy the platform for testing and result validation.

Index Terms—Cash flow, logistics, social ecommerce, taxation, test platform.
