What is E-commerce?

E-commerce stands for electronic commerce, which essentially is the process of selling products on the internet through a website. As credit cards are easily processed online, more and more people are turning to e-commerce and reaping the benefits of convenience and often times lower prices.

Electronic commerce removes the barriers of time and distance involved in the exchange of goods and services. Over the past number of years e-commerce has expanded rapidly and is predicted to accelerate as technology continues to evolve and more services move to the web and mobile apps.

Key components that make up a successful e-commerce website:

Concise product information

Visitors need to know the facts about what they are buying from you. You want to make sure all the necessary product information is available to users. Important features should be laid out in a clear, concise way that is easy to see and understand.

An easy checkout process

Purchasing a product online should be as easy as purchasing a product in a store. You select the product, take it to the cashier, pay, checkout and leave. Shopping online should be no different. It is important to have a very clear, efficient and simple checkout process. This saves time and avoids customers leaving your site because they are left frustrated having to decipher through too many complicated options.

User-friendly navigation

Your E-commerce website should be intuitive in its functionality and contain user-friendly navigation. A positive user experience keeps visitors searching through your site and encourages them to come back.  

Shopping cart design

The design of your shopping cart is one of the most important features on your site. It should be very easy-to-use and understand, giving visitors the options to change quantities, specify product types, choose colors and sizes, enter promo codes, select payment options, and continue shopping or adding items to the cart.
