Electronic commerce, commonly known as e-commerce, is a type of industry where buying and selling of product or service is conducted over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. To most people this means an online shopping cart.
Having an online shopping cart lets you sell products to people who might never enter your shop or who don’t even live in the same country. It means you can take online payments securely (via paypal) anytime of day, even outside normal business hours. Remember, when you are in bed at night, it’s daytime somewhere! Your shop is always open if it’s online.
You can also save on overheads like wages, electricity, insurance etc if your shop is online. All you need pay are your hosting charges and your shop is up and running – even if you are away! You can simply process the orders from your mobile device, and put them in the post on your return.
For the customer, online shopping is also convenient and cost effective. All they need is an internet connection and a debit/credit card, and they gain instant access to millions of products sold online (including yours!). They need not worry about the wear and tear of goods during transport, finding a parking space, standing in a long queue, and carrying all the purchased items to their home.
