In simple terms, the term E-Shop means the buying and selling of goods and services over a network such as the internet.
Transactions occur using either the Business-to-Customer (business directly sells products to consumers), Business-to-Business (selling of products and services between businesses), Consumer-to-Business, or Consumer-to-Consumer model.
How does E-Shop work?
E-shop is powered by the internet which enables customers to browse through the products or services you offer from their devices. This will involve back and forth communication with the server hosting your website.
Advantages of E-Shop
The sites for users to browse for products are open 24/7 which allows users to make purchases at any time.
With e-commerce, users and even businesses are not limited by geographical locations as they can easily ship the customers’ orders once placed. With this, you also get to widen the scope of consumers that you can reach.
Less time consuming
Unlike going to the physical store where there could be crowds of people or you could take some time before locating the aisle on which the product you’re looking for is located, e-commerce consumers can easily find what they’re looking for with the click of a button.
Ability to gain valuable insight
From the history of consumers’ most purchased products and even the time intervals when the most orders come in, you can use this information to make important decisions for your business.
With the ease, comfort, and speed associated with e-commerce, more consumers are turning to shop online. The COVID-19 pandemic which led to restricted movement, which is still the case in some countries, places moving to e-commerce at the center of every business that wants to remain relevant with the changing times.
