It is true to say that Ecommerce has been revolutionizing the way that most of the firms are doing business. Owing to the strong development of the Ecommerce, the customers now can purchase almost everything online while getting an ultimate shopping experience.
Over the last few years, we have seen a significant change in the shopping habit of consumers, from going directly to “brick and mortar stores” to buy stuff to just stay at home and make online purchases. Especially, in developed countries like the US, UK or Australia, nearly 70% of buyers prefer online shopping to traditional shopping. As the result, there is a boom in Electronic Commerce, or Ecommerce development worldwide.
In short, Ecommerce includes the acts of both selling and buying, or in other words any sort of transaction taken on the Internet. There are millions of e-businesses who are trading their products and services on their website, social networking sites or auction sites.
