re: what is ecommerce and what is it advantage and disadvantage

First of all I will like to inform you about ecommerce. Ecommerce is also known as electronic commerce and it is basically related to business and commercial transaction and all and it is used to transfer business and commercial related information over the internet and it include different types of business such as consumer based retail sites, music sites and business that are related to exchange of goods and it has been one of the most important aspect of the internet in today?s world. It allows you to electronically transfer goods and services without any kind of barrier and without any kind of limitation in time and distance. It has expanded gradually in these years and is expected to expand more in the coming years it is also expected that in the coming year boundaries between "conventional" and "electronic" commerce will get reduced and most of their operation will be carried through the internet. Business to Business here is actually related to the ecommerce between the businesses and not between business and consumer and it deals with a no of business and having this type of transaction is quite cheap and faster method of transferring goods and services.

re: what is ecommerce and what is it advantage and disadvantage

Ecommerce helps in removing the barrier of time and distance I mean anyone can log on the internet and can buy the products from the globe and can even make the payment in very short time it just saves a lot of time you can just purchase product that you are willing to buy with just some clicks .Here the direct cost-of-sale or getting the customers to the store is quite cheaper as compared to the traditional method where we have to acquire people to get customers buy promoting the products verbally and all. I think that it is just the cheapest way of doing business and earning maximum profit from it but ecommerce have also increased the competition among the suppliers in order to attract their customers.
