What is eCommerce?

eCommerce is simply “Electronic commerce,” and can be used to describe the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. eCommerce for most people means selling their services on their website. We design shopping cart systems and marketing systems that help the consumer purchase your products and services instantly online and directly on your website.

How does eCommerce Work?

When a consumer visits a website, there are areas that list the services or products of that business. The consumer then decides to make a selection of a product or service and that selection can be purchased through many methods. These methods range from debit/credit cards to PayPal or Google Checkout. We design a secure environment to make these transactions for the buyer. The business then gets confirmation of the purchase and confirmation that the funds have been securely transferred to their account and can then ship or deliver the products and services requested.

What are the benefits?

Having the ability to offer a client an easy and secure method of purchasing your services online can increase the profits of a business significantly. This can be so lucrative that companies decide to only provide their products and services strictly online. For instance, Amazon is entirely an online service for purchasing products and has no physical store location. This can also be useful for having a client pay an invoice. Its not limited to only products and services. Companies can use this technology for anytime they need to collect payments.
