What is eCommerce?
The term eCommerce covers the commercial transaction of goods or services over the internet. An eCommerce platform enables consumers to browse and buy products or services on a website. Depending on the nature of a business, what happens following the transaction can differ. If selling products, the consumer will usually receive their purchase through delivery or by a click & collect method. For services, it can be unique for each business type. The use of an eCommerce platform can allow customers to book appointments, classes, meetings, consultations etc online and pay directly through your website.
Why is eCommerce Development Important?
If you’re selling a product, an eCommerce platform is essential. This is because the popularity of online shopping has increased significantly in the past years. In fact, 67% of millennials prefer to shop online rather than in store. The industry as a whole is growing considerably as eCommerce platforms like Amazon and eBay offer more convenient and often cheaper solutions than high street shops. Consumers in general prioritise convenience above other factors when considering making a purchase, so offering the ability for online payment can increase sales dramatically. If selling a service, the opportunity to book and pay online boasts huge advantages for both the customer and the business. The customer can make payment quickly and efficiently, increasing the likelihood of the customer returning, while the business saves on administration costs and benefits from an increase in sales.
