With the rapid development of "online shopping" market, the role of internet trading platform becomes increasingly important. The confirmation of the legal status of internet trading platform provider is the primary issue of solving disputes over internet trading platform. For this issue, there is a considerable controversy and no common theory in Chinese academic circle. The provision of the revised Consumer Protection Law only focuses on the protection of consumer rights and tort liability, but the specific legal relationships of internet trading platform provider are not considered by legislators. Through the typological analysis of internet trading platform provider from the perspective of contract, the shortage of traditional single subject standard can be overcome, and we may define the legal status of internet trading platform provider more comprehensively and accurately.

Key words: internet trading platform provider, legal status, 2014 Consumer Protection Law, contract, typological analysis
