    ABSTRACT: Descriptive, or soft, modeling is always present at the initial stage of any modeling approaches. An introduction to a model development of Internet retailing is presented. It assumes that its significance expressed by the structure of retail and by dynamics of participation of Internet transactions in business-to-customer and customer-to-customer electronic transactions is conditioned by functionality influenced by two groups of factors: a group of technological factors and a group of human factors. These two groups are opposite in their character and rival each other in the presence of the third group: the group of market factors. The factors contained in technological and human groups are influenced by the feedback from the functionality of real-life Internet transaction services. Market factors influence functionality, yet the feedback relation takes place indirectly through the “significance of Internet retail trade” expressed by market share and sale structure.
