With the last couple of years, there have been so many sites that have come up and the reason being that e-commerce is the easiest way to make business.

There are also a few jurisdictions that govern the e-commerce business. Hence in the present time it the best way in which you can establish your business. You can make your products and can sell that online over the web. You don’t have to consider the middleman and that is what makes the e-commerce so great.


E-commerce in the technical term is the exchange of goods over electronic medium hence the word ‘e’. This e-commerce has the way we buy and sell our products. It facilitated our way of living and has simplified everything. The order would be placed over the internet and you have to just deliver that to the customer as and when the time delivered.

Components of e-commerce

To start an e-commerce business you first have to know the basic of it to better know the areas where you have to look into. The e-commerce is could be divided into two components: Web server, database, and the dispatch system.

  1. Web server: A website and its web server are extremely required to make the whole thing operational at first. The web server processes the transactions that are made on the website. The website hence connects your website to the severing of the banks to make the payments for the purchase. This is the main component of the whole online business. This component alone can handle your business and make a large amount of cash. Many stores are doing well with this concept alone.
  2. Database: A database is required to store all the details of your products. The database also keeps details of the availability of products to keep a regular of the products. The database is also a part of the web server that retrieves and reinput data within the server and the website.
  3. Dispatch system: It is required to keep track of the product in the warehouse which can be instantly located and dispatched as soon as the order is placed. This component is required for the speedy packing and delivery so that customers get their order as soon as possible.

The bane of retail

The rates at which the online businesses are growing are soon going to show the physical stores to the grave. Online shopping has significantly increased and over more than half of the total consumers prefer online over offline because of the wide availability of products and the less price they have to pay. The retail is seemed to be very soon demolished.
