E-commerce is the ability to conduct sales transactions online. This includes selling items on your website.

The benefits of e-commerce is that you are opening new revenue streams. Instead of having a website that only provides information you can have a website that provides information and also offers consumers a new way to purchase from you.

The downside are the security issues with e-commerce. Many e-commerce enabled sites make sales by accepting credit card information online. This credit card information needs to be protected from hackers and other attackers. Other common payment methods used in e-commerce transactions include e-checks and paypal payments.

If you would like to add an e-commerce capability to your website there are many solutions available to you. You can outsource it to a third party website or you can manage the e-commerce on your site. If you manage it on your site you can buy an off-the-shelf software package or design your own solution.

in my own perspective, e-commerce involves buying and selling purchase online as well as transferring funds, something about finance and money but the medium is the internet

We must not forget that e-commerce is a concept, and to follow the concept means you have understood well what encompasses it; first is that you should have a product to sell, and another thing you would have to consider is to review what is inclusive of online marketing. There would be no e-commerce without the presence of any client. So thru online marketing, we search for a client. In that process alone, there are a lot of things to do. But just so it is clear to everyone, e-commerce entails you having a store online and that could be a web site and blogs connected to it.

what is the process to have the E-commerce on our website?

Start with defining your business. A shopping cart may be your answer, but you can't begin to make a decent selection without knowing what you want to do.

You can actively participate in ecommerce by signing up in web sites like clickbank and choose a product or niche you are to use for ecommerce.
i understand even blogging can be one offshoot of ecommerce with the use of Google Adsense.

I'm hoping to sell my own products (books, etc.) online in the future when I have my Web site up. I was wondering what would be the best method of payment for e-commerce. I know Paypal is preferred, but what about just sending in a check beforehand? Is that completely outdated in e-commerce?

Well, pretty much. You have to wait 3-5 days to get the check, 4-7 days for it to clear, etc, etc.

This is why so many folks are reselling merchant accounts.. :)

Very Detailed information. There are many open source script available which can be used to build a ecom site.
Paypal is definitely the most popular method for accepting payments online.

Things to keep in mind when selling online:

• Who is the customer?
• What do they typically buy and how do they hear about it?
• How do they like to buy this type of product or service?
• How often do they buy?
• How can the company best meet the customers' needs?

Recommend looking into PayPal or Magento for setting up your ecommerce shop

Would it be possible for the moderators to mark this thread solved? At this point the original message was asked almost 18 months ago and I would say the thread has been solved.

Keeping this post going is just clutter on the board.

Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web at least at some point in the transaction's lifecycle , although it can encompass a wider range of technologies such as e-mail as well.

A large percentage of electronic commerce is conducted entirely electronically for virtual items such as access to premium content on a website, but most electronic commerce involves the transportation of physical items in some way. Online retailers are sometimes known as e-tailers and online retail is sometimes known as e-tail. Almost all big retailers have electronic commerce presence on the World Wide Web.
