What is e-commerce and why do i need it?

Have you heard of e-commerce? Originally, the term was applied to define the execution of transactions by electronic means, as the exchange of data. However, with the popularity of the internet, it began to be used to define the process of selling goods and services online, using electronic payment methods. Nowdays, e-commerce is a tool, and also a strategy, which encompasses the sale, purchase, distribution and marketing of goods and services.

The benefit of e-commerce is that it allows you to go beyond what your geographic and physical limits allow you, because on the internet there are no barriers or borders. This represents an endless number of opportunities for your business that otherwise you wouldn´t have. An e-commerce website gives you more possibilities with greater reach in your audience, expanding your target, expanding your services, saving you time and money, and at the same time, improving your sales and profits.
