Right now, eCommerce is the fastest growing marketplace for retailers in both North America and Europe, with spending predicted to rise by around 15 per cent during 2016 alone. The US is the world leader in online retailing, with 62 per cent of US consumers conducting purchases online, and spending over $310 online last year.
It’s clear that the marketplace is a fruitful place to be, and that if your business is not yet involved in selling online, you’re almost certainly missing out on sales. Setting up an eCommerce site can be a daunting prospect for any business, but panic not, because I’m here to help.
What is eCommerce exactly?
Types of eCommerce sites
Quite simply, eCommerce is the undertaking of any commercial transaction via the internet. It’s online shopping in every shape and form, from selling clothes on eBay to getting buyers for your latest ebook.
The eCommerce most of us are familiar with is the business to consumer (B2C) market, where customers find our products online and then purchase them right there on the web for us to deliver to their home. Business to business (B2B) happens too, with businesses signing up or selling their services and products to other businesses via the online world.
Less obvious, but still in the mix, are the C2B (consumer to business) marketplace, where buyers post up their needs and then accept bids or proposals for the work to be done. Consumer to consumer (C2C) happens too, with platforms like eBay, Amazon and Craigslist being the most widely recognised mediums.
What makes a good eCommerce site?
Defining eCommerce is not necessarily a simple task, but it’s a fairly easy concept to understand. If your business conducts any transactions online, or would like to, eCommerce is the field into which you are straying.
eCommerce websites are everywhere. From internet only giants like Amazon and eBay to local retailers and popular brands, everyone is vying for position in this highly profitable marketplace.
