Consider Trifecta When Choosing Merchant Service Providers For Your E-Commerce Platform

Filed under:

E-commerce (or alternately ecommerce) facilitates the purchase of goods through the Internet via an online shopping cart and a secure, electronic payment by the purchaser. The seller typically offers physical goods (or more abstract services) and collects shipping & handling fees, as well as appropriate sales taxes. The purchaser agrees to provide payment through credit card, PayPal, or some other method at the end of the transaction. A record of the sale is traditionally verified through email confirmation.

Reach Beyond Your Front Door Possessing an e-commerce website allows a business to reach customers beyond those found in the traditional face-to-face, brick and mortar establishment. Immediate sales can be realized from anywhere in the world, while Internet marketing can be targeted on the local level. E-commerce designers provide the look and feel of the shopping experience, while incorporating the shopping cart functionality that allows buying and selling to take place. Modern consumers have come to expect businesses at most levels to offer e-commerce options.
