Is there a difference between "der Verbraucher" and "der Käufer"?

Verbraucher= consumer, Käufer= "customer". They could probably be used interchangeably in some cases, but they do mean different things.

Can anyone explain why this is dative? i.e., why "the customer" is the so-called "indirect object" in this sentence, as opposed to the direct object?

when using the verb danken, it's always followed by dative case
