Electronic commerce platforms, colloquially known as online shopping, is the trading of goods or services over the Internet. As you know, online shopping has grown exponentially over the past decade with websites such as Amazon and eBay dominating the online market. eCommerce platforms are important tools for both large and small businesses, allowing companies to not only sell their products and services, but also to engage and interact with customers. In 2012, eCommerce sales hit $1 trillion for the first time in history.
