Aspects of Electronic Commerce

When you purchase a good or service online, you are participating in e-commerce.
Some advantages of e-commerce for consumers include:

  • Convenience. E-commerce can take place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Selection. Many stores offer a wider array of products online than they do in their brick-and-mortar counterparts. And stores that exist only online may offer consumers a selection of goods that they otherwise could not access.

But e-commerce also has its disadvantages for consumers:

  • Limited customer service. If you want to buy a computer and you’re shopping online, there may or may not be an employee you can talk to about which computer would best meet your needs. Some websites do include chat features to connect with their staff, but this is not a uniform practice across the industry.
  • No instant gratification. When you buy something online, you have to wait for it to be shipped to your home or office; however, services such as Amazon increasingly offer same-day delivery as a premium option for select products.
  • No ability to touch and see a product. Online images don’t always tell the whole story about an item. E-commerce transactions can be dissatisfying when the product the consumer receives is different than expected.
