Start talking to us today

eCommerce is a very simple thing to explain; any kind of online trading, be that selling products, services or accepting payment for bookings is eCommerce. The basic process of an online retail transaction begins at the customer-facing website, is processed through the CMS, and is then delivered to the customer via an appropriate delivery method.

Why Do You Need An eCommerce Website?

One of the most important components in eComemrce is the website that you choose to present your products and services through. This is your portal for business and what separates a true eTailer from a trader with online aspirations is having your very own site, instead of trading solely through Amazon or eBay.

What Is A CMS?

Behind your website is the CMS, the content management system.
