Looking at the list of advantages of e-commerce websites makes people think that it is the holy grail of retail. Having a physical store limits people geographically. Such physical stores can only serve people within that location. When a company has a website, then the whole world becomes its playground. Such a company can reach anyone from any part of the world. The advent of e-commerce has made shopping even easier. Shoppers don't have to carry their laptops about or go to a cybercafe to order. With mobile phones, shoppers are good to go. In this age and era, retailers don't need to own a physical shop to sell things. People can set up a website and market products manufactured by various companies. Branding and relationships drive online retail stores. These are not the only factors that drive online retail. Traffic from search engines also drives online retail. It's common for people to follow a link in a search engine and discover an e-commerce website that they haven't heard of before. This additional source of traffic can be the tipping point for some e-commerce businesses. Shoppers also get to buy things at lower costs online. Organic search engine traffic, pay per click, social media traffic also reduces cost. The number of employees required to run an e-commerce set-up is reduced because of automation check-out, billing payments, inventory management, and other operational processes. A lot of online retail stores now offer a huge range of products and services like coaching classes, holiday gifts, food products, and much more. An example of a company that connects customers to sellers is The Indytute.
