You may have asked yourself “What is e-commerce?”. E-commerce is the English abbreviation for electronic commerce, that is, every commercial transaction (buying and selling) made through the internet with the aid of an electronic device.
Virtual store, online store, e-commerce or e-commerce is nothing more than a website where you can sell products or services over the internet. The customer accesses the store through an electronic device (computer, notebook, smartphone, tablet, among others), anywhere and at any time of day, chooses the product, makes payment via credit card, bank payment slip or bank deposit and receives, within a specified period, the product at home.
