What Is eCommerce?

eCommerce is short for electric commerce, which is the conducting of business through computers and networks. Specifically, eCommerce is the buying and selling of goods and services, and the transfer of funds, through digital communications. An "e-tailer" is a business who utilizes this technology.

Ecommerce once required a personal security certificate and a pricey interface but this is no longer true. Virtual storefronts are available through a number of hosting services and large websites like eBay and Yahoo which offer simple, turn-key solutions. These options normally require limited online experience.

Tools for running ecommerce sites are now built into hosting servers and include benefits like shopping carts, viewing inventory, and the ability to accept secure online payments. While security was a main concern in the past, those fears have now subsided as improved technology and credit card companies jumping in and telling customers they will not be charged for online shopping fraud.

Ecommerce is a profitable and cost-effective way for companies to get their products in the hands of customers. The professionals at TheeDigital have created several functional and profitable ecommerce solutions.
