Beginners, Glossary and Background

Electronic Commerce, or e-commerce is buying and selling on-line, usually via the Internet . Typically a website will advertise goods and services and the buyer will fill in a form on the website to select the items to be purchased and provide delivery and payment details. The website may gather details about customers and offer further items that may be of interest. The cost of a high street store is avoided and the savings are often passed on to the customers, sometimes leading to spectacular growth. The term e-business includes buying and selling on-line but also includes other aspects of on-line business, such as customer support. Business-to-business sales often use EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). The transactions involve sending messages with formats that must conform to strict specifications (set by standards committees).
