What is an ECommerce Website?
An Ecommerce Website is a software application that enables:
- Business owners to manage their online sale operations
- Customers to buy and pay for products or services over the internet
- Transfer of information and funds over the Internet
- Secure transaction and storage of business, customer, finance and payment data
The Ecommerce Workflow
- A customer reaches your eCommerce website. She could have reached the website through a search or an advertisement, or a referral.
- The website displays the product or category the customer queries or browses for. So the website displays products, specifications, price and images from a database.
- After browsing the customer adds some products or services to the cart and checks out.
- The buyer shares personal data on the website. This including financial and bank details like credit card information. The website sends this data to a payment gateway for processing payment.
- Once the payment is complete the website issues a payment receipt. It also issues a unique transaction number and an invoice to the customer.
- The ecommerce website then sends this data the fulfillment team. This team ensures execution of the order and shipment.
