Yes people! Today I will be talking about E-commerce and online shopping *as if the tittle of the post ain’t obvious enough*
So…What is E-commerce? Electronic commerce or e-commerce is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It covers a range of different types of businesses, from consumer based retail sites, through auction or music sites, to business exchanges trading goods and services between corporations. It also allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance.It is currently one of the most important aspects of the Internet to emerge.
I’m pretty sure that we all know what will happen if we try to put shopping in a sentence and say it to a girl or even men *at times*
Yes THAT reaction. OK..OK.. We all know shopping is AMAZING but what about ONLINE SHOPPING?? Yes! the purchasing of goods online. Online and shopping. ONLINE SHOPPING!!!!
Now the question you guys might ask is. Why shop online when we can just do in store shopping?Wrong question people! Why go shopping when you can shop in the comfort of your own home online?
Online shopping is more convenient. If you go shopping in a mall; it’s crowded, it’s noisy, you physically have to be there when it’s open and you have to wait in long lines to pay for everything. Whereas, if you shop online you never have to leave your home and the stores are never close. There are also no overworked sales clerks, you never have to wait for service and there are no worries about parking. Oh! And you can shop for underwear in peace.
Goods online are also cheaper as online shops don’t have to hire sale staff or pay rent, some online deals can be found much cheaper than in a mall. And the range of products is wider too.
Electronic commerce has expanded rapidly over the years and is predicted to continue at this rate, or even accelerate. I believe, in the near future the boundaries between “conventional” and “electronic” commerce will become increasingly blurred as more and more businesses move sections of their operations onto the Internet.
