E-commerce

What is e-commerce?

Electronic commerce, commonly known as e-commerce, is the buying and selling of product or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. Electronic commerce draws on such technologies as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web at least at one point in the transaction’s life-cycle, although it may encompass a wider range of technologies such as e-mail, mobile devices and telephones as well.

Electronic commerce is generally considered to be the sales aspect of e-business. It also consists of the exchange of data to facilitate the financing and payment aspects of business transactions.

E-commerce can be divided into:

▪    E-tailing or “virtual storefronts” on Web sites with online catalogues, sometimes gathered into a “virtual mall”;

▪    The gathering and use of demographic data through Web contacts;

▪    Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), the business-to-business exchange of data;

▪    E-mail and fax and their use as media for reaching prospective and established customers (for example, with newsletters).

▪    Business-to-business buying and selling
