How Does eCommerce Work and What is an eCommerce Website?
eCommerce (which stands for Electronic Commerce) is one of the strongest ways to sell products through the internet. Ever since the ability to allow for online purchases via credit card, the scale of products to be sold on the web remain limitless. With people caught up with their daily routine, convenience is king as shipping times are faster than ever and all can be done with the single click of a mouse.
While all eCommerce sites are built differently, the basic functions are all the same. When using credit cards online, they do not get authorized through the website itself, but rather through a payment gateway. It is essential that you have an account with a payment gateway (we will assist with that) in order to accept credit cards onto your website. The website will be guarded by 128 bit-encryption, therefore making the chance of fraud almost impossible. When a purchase is made, the money will be planted directly into your company's bank account.
When a customer places an order, the purchase and payment information will show up in the administration section. You will then proceed to login with your username and password to access this information. Using the admin section, you will be to add and update products, as well maintain full operations over your website.
