E-commerce is a term for any business, or commercial transaction that involves the transfer of information. Typically, for generations, the basics of retail stayed the same. People who wanted to buy something usually had to go to a store. Most people were able to find a store by looking for its sign. We do not have to tell you that times have changed or that the Internet has dramatically affected the way people think and act on buying a product. With the last decade showing a growth on average of 19% per year, far faster than offline retail, many small businesses have only dipped their toes into e-commerce, but the time has come to dive in. Even during the dark days of the 2009 when retail sales shrank 2%, e-commerce vendors grew sales 1.4%, capitalizing on price-sensitive and increasingly Web-savvy consumers.
