Types of E-Commerce

E-Commerce is of various types. Depending on the product being sold, there are three types of e-commerce options:

  1. Selling of physical goods such as books, groceries, clothes, electronic devices etc., which involves physically delivering the product to the customer's doorstep.
  2. Selling of digital goods such as music, ebooks etc., which are downloaded immediately or sent to a customer's inbox.
  3. Selling services, where financial instruments such as insurance, educational options such as tutorials or MOOCs, and others such as ticketing options etc. can be offered.

Depending on the people involved in the transactions, e-commerce too can follow the traditional classification of business as:

Benefits of E-Commerce

Benefits of E-Commerce

E-commerce scores high on convenience. It has a host of benefits:

The primary benefit of e-commerce, as with any online endeavour, is a global reach. Geography is not a barrier to sell with e-commerce.

Second, e-commerce allows producers to directly reach the customers, which means elimination of middlemen, instant feedback, and possible personalization as per the requirements of the most valuable customers.

Third, e-commerce is beneficial to sellers as they do not have to invest in a physical retail space, and bear cost such as store design, electricity, maintenance and other associated costs.

Fourth, for consumers, it is a good option as shopping can be done anywhere, and in the absence of overheads for the seller, products are available for much lower rates.
