Abstract. The development of ICT facilitates replacing of traditional buying-selling processes withe-commerce solutions. Waiving the direct buyer-seller communication creates risks for both the buyer and the seller. If several customers are served at the same time, processes can interference each other. The paper offers a method to identify purchase/sale risks: (1) in single-customer, (2) in simultaneous multi-customer service processes. First, a model of the buying-selling process is created and  conditions for the correctness of process execution are formulated. Then an analysis of all possible scenarios is performed using a symbolic execution. The obtained result allows to identify risks of e-commerce solution.
