The definition of ‘Electronic commerce’ or ecommerce as it is known today, is used where any type of business, or commercial transaction involves the transfer of information across the web.
This covers a huge range of different types of businesses, from consumer based sites, through auction sites, to business sites trading goods and services between companies. Today this channel is becoming increasingly important in the Internet world.
The benefit of Ecommerce is that it allows people to electronically exchange goods and services for money, the barriers of time or distance being removed and making no difference. Indeed, Electronic commerce has expanded rapidly over the past five years and is predicted to accelerate even faster in the future.
Some pundits are saying that in the near future the boundaries between what are termed "conventional" and "electronic" commerce will become even more difficult to tell apart, as more and more businesses move parts of their operations online.
Business to Business or B2B refers to the electronic commerce that is carried out between businesses rather than between a business and a member of the public, the end consumer. B2B businesses often deal with thousands of other businesses, both as customers and as suppliers.
Carrying out these transactions electronically using online Ecommerce sites, provides great competitive advantages over the older methods, at least when implemented properly, ecommerce normally being faster, cheaper and more convenient.
