Learn about what ecommerce can do for your business
What is eCommerce?
eCommerce is essentially online shopping. It is an industry where the buying and selling of products is conducted over any systems that use the internet. This industry is growing, and growing fast. 70% of all commerce was influenced by smartphones or computers this past year. Coming off of a holiday season that saw an enormous increase in online shopping for gifts, expect to see this trend continue into 2014.
What does this mean for your business?
If you have an eCommerce based website, meaning you sell your products to customers who can pay online, think about optimizing this aspect of your company.
First of all, make your eCommerce website responsive for mobile device access, like smartphones and tablets. This past year, 73% of people do at least half of their shopping online, and 66% prefer to shop online instead of going into a store according to a poll taken by 500 online shoppers.
eCommerce has many attributes to consider before starting to sell online. A Shopping Cart is a piece of eCommerce software on a web server that allows online shoppers to select an item for purchase. The items will be stored in the Shopping Cart until checkout.
It is also important to note that through selling your items online, your stores inventory will be drawn from two places: in-store purchases, and online purchases. Inventory Management Software is another part of eCommerce that is a computer-based system for tracking inventory levels, orders, sales, and deliveries. This is a critical software for companies to avoid product over stock and outages.
