Selling or buying products on the Internet is called ecommerce
, or electronic commerce
. It's a term that describes a technology of selling products and services online via websites. Ecommerce allows consumers to purchase goods and services electronically, from their computers, with no barriers of time or distance.
Sell online with electronic commerce
If you plan to sell something directly from your website then you need to enable ecommerce
on it. Basically, it means that you present your products on your website and also have Buy Now
, Book Now
or similar buttons (or links) that allow users to purchase your products.
Visitors interact with your website. They read product descriptions, look at photos, specifications, prices and so on. If they like any particular product they click on Buy
button, that initiates a checkout process. Usually, the checkout process is fully automatic. After receiving a notification about user payment you may need to do some manual steps such as shipping a product to customer.
Benefits of Ecommerce with Anuko
There are many flavors of ecommerce. Most of them require vendors to invest significantly into a particular system. For example, you may be required to open and pay for a merchant account
for credit card processing. This is just one but significant obstacle for entry level electronic vendors. There may be other obstacles, too, which may require investments of money, time, or sometimes programming effort to connect all pieces together.
Anuko is very well positioned in the entry level segment
of the electronic commerce market. If you are just starting selling online
or even just thinking about ecommerce
