What Is eCommerce?
eCommerce, simply put, is the process of buying and selling things over the Internet. To create an eCommerce system (online store) one must have several components in place:
- an online product catalog
- a payment page
- linkage from the payment page to a Transaction Processor
- a secure certificate (to encode credit card information)
- a merchant account
- a bank account to receive the funds
