Remark:
Note that 479100 - mail order or internet sales is only to be used when the company sells all kinds of products (clothes, electronics, etc.) for retail trade.
If the company sells specific products (e.g. books only) the sales channel is no longer considered, but the product in the corresponding retail sector.

A wholesaler (NOGA 46) sells these goods to businesses. A retailer (NOGA 47) sells its products to the final consumer. If both activities are carried out without predominance, retail trade (47) takes precedence.
