E-commerce is basically the processes that are put in to place to support a company's business activity on the web or via other electronic means. The emergence of e-commerce as a way of customers purchasing has persuaded many companies to create an e-commerce web site and virtual shops or malls. E-Commerce consists of buying, marketing, selling and delivering services or goods by means of electronic transactions and activities.

Even more basic, to buy or sell on the internet

E-commerce is the buying and selling of products using the World Wide Web. A business that's using an e-commerce website will have a basket that lets you send products to it, so you can later buy the product online.
