What is E-Commerce?

In it’s simplest form e-commerce can be defined as the buying and selling of products or services via the Internet, e.g. via a website.

The scope for e-commerce is varied and wide ranging these days, and is fast becoming the preferred alternative to the high street for new business start up companies.

A few examples of e-commerce are for the purpose of:

  • Selling products (e.g. consumables, diy, electronics, property etc, etc)
  • Online catalogues/brochures
  • Stocks & shares
  • Banking

More and more high street retailers are now updating their websites to include an element of e-commerce into their business, or are moving away from being a high street business to being a purely online business.

There are many benefits to trading online for both the business and the consumer. For businesses there are reduced overheads and the supply chain etc can make a significant difference to their bottom line. For the consumer there are lower costs and the convenience of shopping without leaving your home (including grocery shopping for busy mums etc).
