E-Commerce is one of the most important facets of the Internet to have emerged in the recent times. E-commerce or electronic commerce involves carrying out business over the Internet with the assistance of computers, which are linked to each other forming a network. To be specific e-commerce would be buying and selling of goods and services and transfer of funds through digital communications.
Another benefit of E-commerce:
E-commerce allows people to carry out businesses without the barriers of time or distance. One can log on to the Internet at any point of time, be it day or night and purchase or sell anything one desires at a single click of the mouse.
The direct cost-of-sale for an order taken from a website is lower than through traditional means (retail, paper-based), as there is no human interaction during the on-line electronic purchase order process. Also, electronic selling virtually eliminates processing errors, as well as being faster and more convenient for the visitor.
E-commerce is ideal for niche products. Customers for such products are usually few. But in the vast marketplace i.e. the Internet, even niche products could generate viable volumes.
Another important benefit of E-commerce is that it is the cheapest means of doing business.
The day-to-day pressures of the marketplace have played their part in reducing the opportunities for companies to invest in improving their competitive position. A mature market, increased competitions have all reduced the amount of money available to invest. If the selling price cannot be increased and the manufactured cost cannot be decreased when the difference can be in the way the business is carried out. E-commerce has provided the solution by decimating the costs, which are incurred.
