What is Ecommerce?

eCommerce or electronic commerce is the buying and selling of products and services over the internet. eCommerce as a business model offers a lot of opportunities to earn money because it requires only a very small start-up budget but there is potential to earn large profits. eCommerce sales of physical products are usually made on an online marketplace such as eBay or on an eCommerce website. 


Global trends indicate that eCommerce, particularly the sale of physical products, will see immense growth in coming years. eCommerce is set to dramatically change how we buy and sell products online.
