What is Ecommerce?
Ecommerce is the combination of two words – Electronic and Commerce. Word commerce is the term used to buy or sell anything or social dealings with person to person. So, electronic commerce means buying and selling through electronic medium which is Internet. Or more simply we can say it is a way of business by using the Internet. Whenever anyone purchase or sale anything through Internet that person is participating directly in ecommerce.
Few decades before we were buying and selling by going to the market and traveling. In those days it took a complete day to go, select, bargain, buy and then come back to home. But now as the world is global village and we have access of the whole world from our home by using Internet through computers, laptop and mobile. That’s the biggest facility for all of us. Today everyone has limited time to run with the modern life style. Then how can they spend a whole day or week for just going, traveling and buying by sacrificing their daily important tasks.
We can sell or buy anything from needle to plane through Internet without time limit. If the seller has facility to post or show anything to the billions of customers, at the same time buyers have also the facility to check and match the prices and can buy anything in the cheapest price. As millions or billions of sellers are selling the same product in different prices. There are hundreds and thousands of websites on the Internet with millions and billions of products. These websites are just like the showrooms of products. One of the best facility is we can easily see the reviews of other customers before buying anything. Good or bad reviews reflect the quality of product and makes easy to take best decision for the buyer.
The most important benefit or the convenience part of ecommerce is that the market and products are available from around the clock. We have wider selection of products and services available in ecommerce through Internet. The payments which people are doing through credit cards are also secure now. Now we can also easily do the transactions through the ecommerce within minutes or seconds. It’s the task which takes days or weeks before.
