Electronic Commerce (E-commerce)

Electronic commerce, more commonly known as e-commerce, is the process of buying of selling goods or services principally via the internet and also by other electronic means such as by television.

This usually takes place through a merchant’s or service provider’s website. Payments are processed through an online gateway, such as NOIRE.

Some advantages of e-commerce for consumers are:

  • Convenience – E-commerce can take place 24/7.
  • Selection – Many stores offer a wider range of products online than they do in their physical stores. Some stores that exist only online may offer consumers a selection of goods that they otherwise could not access.

eBay is an e commerce website and e commerce business. E-commerce business models are different to physical store business models.
