The line dividing communications portals and communications forums are often blurred. Online portals primarily make information on a certain topic available. This form of portal is ideal, for example, for companies who want to provide support via the internet for their products which require explanation.
Technically, portals are generally superimposed on Content Management Systems. The separation of design and content is almost an imperative when there are several authors. The differentiated user administration and assignment of rights in systems such as Typo3 makes possible the differentiated management of complex sites.
Forums, on the other hand, put greater emphasis on interaction with the user. For example, support forums area generally moderated by an administrator, but basically function through the communication between users.
Partner programmes such as voucher portals and price search engines are of increasing importance for e-business.
With voucher portals, such as groupon.de for example, a certain number of products are offered at a discounted price. The customer clicks on the offer on groupon.de and received the product via a voucher for a discounted price. The special feature of many voucher portals is that they have a regional connection. It is therefore worthwhile for small and medium-sized businesses from Mannheim, for example, to offer products via voucher portals. Furthermore, the portals set a minimum number of participants, so that you will receive a minimum number of products sold.

More and more users are searching on the internet for cheaper prices for certain products. Price search engines are being used with increasing frequency. As a retailer, you are only displayed if you have registered the respective product with the price search engine.
