What is Ecommerce
Ecommerce is a shortened version of the phrase "electronic commerce" which essentially describes any type of exchange of currency for goods or services online.
Ecommerce is an umbrella term that covers everything there is to do with buying or selling online, and can sometimes be otherwise written as "E Commerce," "e-commerce," or "eCommerce." Any variation of the spelling is correct, and it all describes the same act of performing business via the internet.
Since the definition of ecommerce is so open-ended (it literally includes any type of buying or selling of goods or services online) there are so many different types of ecommerce businesses that exist. In this article, we dive deeper into the different options that are available for ecommerce business owners to run ecommerce businesses.
Every ecommerce business can be differentiated by the types of products that it sells. There are four main products that any ecommerce business can sell and they are:
Every single ecommerce business online can fit into one or more of these categories, and this basically just tells you what type of products they sell to their customers.
Some ecommerce businesses sell physical products which means that the business has actual tangible products that they ship to their customers, and when their customers open the shipping package there will be a physical product they can touch, feel and see.
Digital products, on the other hand, are something ecommerce businesses can sell online but they're not an actual physical product that can be shipped to their customers. Oftentimes, once a digital product is purchased online a customer can download the digital files straight away with no need for the business to actually ship anything to the customer.
Businesses can also provide digital or in-person services that their customers can purchase online. These services can include anything from design services or streaming services (both are digital services) to home improvement services or dog-walking services (which are in-person services). Any business that provides a service, rather than a physical or digital product, can be included in this category.
