These days, Internet users expect to be able to browse your products at a time that suits them, from the comfort of their own home, with enough information available to aid their buying decision and then they expect to be able to buy painlessly online with the promise of fast delivery.
Ecommerce has been around for over 10 years now during which time online shops have become better looking and better geared towards taking orders.
The Advantages of Ecommerce
Selling online has several distinct advantages over traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ businesses:
Take orders 24 / 7 – even on bank holidays or Christmas day. Your customers are not limited by opening hours.
No travel time and cost for customers. Your audience is not limited by distance.
Provide more detail per product than you can with just a product on a shelf. Your website does the selling without the need for employees knowledgeable in every product.
Customer can take their time browsing from the comfort of their own home
Customers can find products faster than having to look around a physical shop
Easily manage and advertise incentives such as discount vouchers, 2 for 1 deals etc
