Hello and welcome to the eCommerce section of ReadyCMS.

What is eCommerce

eCommerce, (electronic commerce or e-commerce) refers to the buying and selling of goods or services using the internet, and the transfer of money and data to execute these transactions. eCommerce is often used to refer to the sale of physical products online, but it can also describe any kind of commercial transaction that is facilitated through the internet.

The terms eCommerce and eBusiness are often used interchangeably. Whereas eBusiness refers to all aspects of operating an online business, eCommerce refers specifically to the transaction of goods and services.

eCommerce is the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over the internet.

eCommerce operates in all four of the following major market segments:

  • Business to business (B2B); when a business sells a good or service to another business.
  • Business to consumer (B2C); when a business sells a good or service to an individual consumer.
  • Consumer to consumer (C2C); when a consumer sells a good or service to another consumer.
  • Consumer to business (C2B); when a consumer sells their own products or services to a business or organization.
Almost anything can be purchased and sold through eCommerce today.
