In a more traditional shop you simply take the item you wish to purchase from a shelf to the checkout point and complete the transaction there. When purchasing from an online store you will not be able to physically interact with the item you’ve purchased until it arrives at your home via the postal services or a courier.
This makes shopping for goods online slightly trickier than it would be ordinarily. A sound e-commerce system will ideally comprise of three main parts: an online store, a database as well as a dispatch system. The storefront will allow customers to view and select the items they wish to buy as well as with linking to banks in order to check card information. The database will monitor stock quantities and sometimes automatically order new items should stock drop below minimum levels. The dispatch system communicates orders to the warehouse where the goods can be located and sent off to the buyers.
