The Roots and Rise of e-commerce
E-commerce development as we see today began over three decades ago with advent of credit cards, ATMs and telephone banking. In due course, services such as electronic airline reservation also started. These days, we normally associate e-commerce with web-based buying and selling of physical goods or services over the Internet, using secure protocols and electronic payment services.
Modern e-commerce takes many forms, for example: ordering digital content (software, e-books) for immediate online consumption; ordering food and flowers; buying books, groceries or even cars, jewelry and real estate; booking rail, air tickets and tour plans; availing of services like online banking and bill payment; online DVD rental; and dealing in stocks.
E-commerce website development is mainly concerned with two major models, business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C). The former involves developing web applications related to supply chain management, inventory control and transactions processing. The later involves products listing, product demo, shopping cart, and secure payment gateway applications.
In addition, e-commerce website development also looks into designing the attractive, elegantly crafted, user-friendly e-commerce web sites which will help you generate more sales conversions, shorten your sales cycle and build the brand and customer trust. Ecommerce web sites provide the most economical way of developing your business online. By developing your own e-commerce website you can reach out to your potential customers globally and offer them your products and services directly through the Internet.
Ecommerce application development encompasses creating custom e-commerce solutions. This can include developing a group of applications covering the entire life cycle of the product, from procuring raw materials, processing and manufacturing, logistics, interactions with suppliers, accounting, inventory control and many more, before the finished product is released in the market for end users.
