There are three major types of retailing.
The first is counter service, now rare except in the case of controlled items (e.g. medicine). The second, and more widely used method of retail, is self service. Quickly increasing in importance are online shops, the third type, where products and services can be ordered for physical delivery, downloading or virtual delivery.
