Electronic commerce on the Internet is commonly referred to as e-commerce. It is part of e-business and involves the promotion, purchase and sale of goods and services in the digital world. In the form of online shopping, e-commerce has found its way into the everyday life of most people.
Hardly any internet presence still works today without a shopping cart function. The integration of e-commerce into social media such as Facebook or Instagram has greatly increased the potential applications of e-commerce. For customers, shopping with e-commerce is mainly characterized by the fact that products can be ordered without delay and delivered to their home. In addition, offers are comparable and easy communication between customers and service providers is possible.
