What are the disadvantages of ecommerce for customers?

ECommerce is a big blessing in making life easier for people. But I believe there is just one concern that may lean towards being a disadvantage if not dealt appropriately and accordingly.

Trust is a major concern.

Some people may have more topics to discuss about it. But as a consumer, the first thing that you would check when looking at the products that you are planning on buying would be the reviews. Though people may be looking for a great discount or deal for their upcoming purchase, they would also check the validity of the product that they are looking at. That’s a clear sign for me that people are looking for a merchant that they could trust.

Security and Privacy

Concerns over security and privacy are related to trust. The risk of a data breach or an intrusion to harvest customers’ personal identifiable information is very high as most of our data used to access eCommerce markets are online.

Personal Interaction

Some customers may feel uneasy having to deal with merchants online because they may be looking for that personal interaction. Lacking that personal touch may become a major issue for consumers.

Quality of Products

Another probable concern for consumers would be the quality of the product delivered to them. Merchants may issue a statement that the final product may be different from the image seen in the site, but to have a totally different product of a low quality may be a frustrating experience for consumers.

Where can you learn about e-business?

There are lots of sites out there that claim that they can teach you about e-business. The problem is that they can't provethat what they teach will help you build a successful e-business.

The reality is that like most off-line businesses, most e-businesses fail. Why? The main reason is lack of targeted traffic to their website. Here is how to overcome that obstacle and build a successful e-business.

1. Choose a niche you are passionate about (and knowledgeable)

2. Build a content rich site that over-delivers valuable, sought-after information (See a real life e-business success story based on this concept by following the link in the margin)

3. The content will generate targeted, free traffic from the search engines with no tricks or manipulation required. Remember, always keep it real.

4. Once you have a steady stream of targeted traffic, then, and only then, do you start to "monetize" your business.

Most people do this all backwards, and in the end fail. Stick to the above formula (in order!) and you can't go wrong. Is it easy? No. Does it take work and dedication? Yes.

Create your own comprehensive marketing website that you can use to market your business online. Select a web template that best suits you and get several powerful viral marketing tools that are build in to your website. Get people hooked on to your site through your own blogs, showcase what you have to offer through your own photo albums, create your own articles describing about your business together with several other powerful tools will help grow your business step by step. You have to find a hungryaudience for what you're selling. Having a passion for something is great, but if you want to make an income, you want to make sure there is an buying audience that wants what you're passionate about. Tailor your marketing efforts in the best way to reach that audience.

Plus, use traditional means, like word-of-mouth, to generate traffic to your e-business. Though it is online, you are still doing business with human beings.

E-Commerce is believed to have started off in 1994 when the first ever banner appeared on the internet but electric commerce not using the internet must have originated as far back as the 1970s when technologies such as Electronic Funds Transfer

and Electric Data Interchange were being used. M-Commerce on the other hand stands for Mobile Commerce and refers to commercial transactions being conducted over cellular and mobile devices. M-Commerce originated sometime during the 1990s. The methods of payment used are normally calling numbers with premium rates, reduction of the caller's credit and charging the user's bill.

What do you need to start a ecommerce website?

* Domain Name * Monthly Hosting * Shopping cart system

(oScommerce - free open source software) * Merchant Account to accept payments online

(paypal accepts credit cards, eChecks, paypal account) * Incorpate, LLC, or DBA with State to be legal * Tax ID after that from IRS * A resale certificate is needed as well if you choose to resale products from a distributor or manufacturer.

(This is so you dont get charged tax from source of products) * Most important two are products and website traffic. This will make or break your ecommerce company. Make sure to charge appropriate tax to shipping destination within your own state. Tax rates change by county so be very sure to do it right or the IRS will nail you with penalties.

Anywhere outside your state, you dont have to charge taxes...it is purchaser responsibility. Very vague question. You need a website, you need to source products, you need a payment gatewaywhich works with your website, you need a shopping cart integrated with your website. You will haver to conform to many laws. If your collecting personal data about our customers, you need to register yourself with the Data protection registrar. I think you have lots of research to do...
History of ecommerce dates back to the invention of the very old notion of "sell and buy", electricity, cables, computers, modems, and the Internet. Ecommerce became possible in 1991 when the Internet was opened to commercial use. Since that date thousands of businesses have taken up residence at web sites.
