How eCommerce Webstores Work?
The hybrid word eCommerce means Electronic Commerce, or doing business on the Internet. If you have ever purchased anything online you have engaged in eCommerce.
When it comes to website shopping you need two primary elements, a website or webstore and a shopping cart. The shopping cart is the actual component that facilitates the transaction of the shopping experience.
