E-Commerce or Electronic Commerce refers to the exchange of goods and/or services between the buyer and the seller, using the World Wide Web or Internet as the electronic medium.
E-Commerce makes use of the digital platform in order to aid the continuance of commercial activities and requires no physical interaction between the affected parties (unlike a traditional brick and mortar establishment).
Recent surveys indicate that the total business value of e-commerce activities was in excess of US$ 8 trillion for the calendar year 2015 with more exponential growth projected right through the year 2016.
E-Commerce elicits the use of the latest technological developments in order to complete a commercial transaction. The most common business model where E-Commerce is increasingly being used is the “B2C” model where goods and/or services are sold directly by the business to the end consumer.
In a B2C e-commerce business model, the potential customer gathers information about a specific product or service through the online website maintained by the business. The website is traditionally a product or service catalogue which the customer uses to gather the necessary information needed to finalize a purchase decision.
At the end of the process, if the customer decides to go through with the purchase decision, he/she uses the online shopping cart provided by the merchant to complete the checkout process and make the payment online. The physical good is then shipped to the delivery address provided by the customer at a later date.
In a B2C e-commerce business model, the business does not have to keep open a large store front which is customer accessible. This saving in cost can be passed down to the customer in the form of lower prices.
