What is eCommerce?
Short for “electronic commerce,” eCommerce allows an organization to conduct and manage business over an electronic network. It creates a marketplace that is the online equivalent of a brick-and-mortar storefront.
In fact, whenever you purchase a product or service online, you are actively participating in eCommerce. There’s more, however, to it than simply buying and selling products on the internet. It also includes activities such as electronic payments, internet banking, online ticketing, and online auctions.
How will eCommerce benefit your organization?
One of the biggest benefits associated with eCommerce is that it removes the barriers of time and distance. With the click of a button, customers can make purchases 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
In addition, it is a cheaper, and more efficient way to sell products and services because it eliminates the high costs of rent associated with running a physical storefront.
Furthermore, online marketplaces aren’t bound by the same space limitations as street-side businesses. Consequently, they can offer a wider selection of products and higher quantities of each product online.
Almost any product or service can be offered via eCommerce, making it the future of shopping. According to Digital Commerce 360, eCommerce will make up 17 percent of retail sales in the United States by 2020. In fact, it is predicted that shoppers will spend approximately $460 billion online this year alone. Online retail sales are currently surpassing their offline counterparts and are predicted to continue growing.
