    Hi guys

    Trade is the building block of both business and commerce, as well as the economy in general. Trade involves the exchage of goods, services or currency. In the most basic form it can be carried off without words. Both parties approach with goods to trade. Each proposes an amount of their own goods, as well as pointing to what they want from the other guy. Each is allowed to add or remove from their proposal until both are satisfied and the goods are swaped. In modern terms, trade is usually performed at a distance through money. I provide a service for which I am paid. I use that money to purchase goods which I want. The store which sells them to me uses the money to purchase additional goods or services. Effectively, the person for whom I performed the services has traded for the goods and services which the store wanted. It all happened by the exchange of ready cash.
    Commerce is trade over long distances. In local areas a commodity (thing you trade) may not be worth as much as it is in another area. By trading for the good in one place, moving the good to another place and selling it at a higher price, the trader has just made money. This is called commerce and in modern parlance it has come to mean any operation which is designed to earn money by trade. A commercial enterprise seeks to make money by trade (although sometimes we do it at such a distance through cash that we hardly see the actual trade anymore). Anything which is used in a trade in order to earn money is referred to as commercialized and thus "commercializing the holidays" means using the holidays as a way to improve profits.
    Business, correctly stated by the previous answerer is, is the state of being busy. A business plan explains the flow of goods, services and cash through a business in order to 1) sustain the business in its current state and 2) hopefully make some additional money. For instance, a store uses credit to buy 10 TVs. It pays for advertising about the sale, and sales staff to sell the TVs. It then sells the TVs at a profit, pays off the creditor, replaces the money for the ads and payroll, hopefully making enough extra money to put some away for a rainy day. This is a mathematical equation: Total Sales of TVs - Total Cost of TVs = Profit margin. If the profit margin is postive the company makes money. If it is negative, the company loses money. A good business will do an excellent job keeping itself going (being busy) while maintaining a positive profit margin that will increase the worth of the business.

    Thank for all friends

    Smile difference between trade and business??

    Hello Friends,

    Business is a term used for all the activities performed by a business enterprise. This includes three basic activities of buying, manufacturing and selling. In addition a business may carry out additional activities such as product design, advertising and financing. Based on this basic meaning, the word business may also be used in several related ways such as a firm or enterprise in business activities, the overall state or performance of such firm (for example, "how is business?"), and group of firms or their activities connected with a common product (for example, automobile business).
    In contrast, trade refers only to the buying and selling activities, which form a part of business activities. The word trader is often used to describe business firms, such as wholesalers that are primarily engaged in buying and selling activities. Also the word trading is used more often to describe buying and selling activities involving large quantities between traders rather than selling to retail customer. Usually import and imports and exports involve buying and selling of large quantities between traders, and therefore it is more common to use term trading for such activities.
    Thanks.

    Wecome to the forum! It's a difficult question to answer. The two words are very similar, but they are not completely interchangeable. At least, I don't think they are.

    For example, a quasi-official body in the U.S. is the "Chamber of Commerce." It is an association of local businesses, but oddly enough a certificiate from this body is accepted in international trade as proof that a product came from that community. We wouldn't call this body the "Chamber of Trade."

    The collection of shops and businesses in our downtown areas are often called the "commercial center", but we wouldn't call them the "trade center."

    However, business done with other countries can be "International Trade" or "International Commerce."

    We say, "That business is doing a good trade in shoes (or some product.)" We wouldn't say, "That business is doing a good commerce in shoes."

    In general, when dealing internationally, I think the word "trade" is used more often. When dealing with local businesses or business within a country, I think we use "commerce" more often.

    I wish I could be more specific or provide you with a rule, but I'm not aware of any rule that governs when one or the other is used.

    Trade and business almost similar. But a tea staler can be business man but he is not trader. Trading also consist the import and export. If you purchase goods from one place and sell to another place is can be defined as trade.
