060198: eCommerce

In this month's issue of Anvil, we will provide insight into the many facets of e-commerce. According to What Is?, e-commerce, or electronic commerce, "is the buying and selling of goods and services on the Internet, especially the World Wide Web. In practice, this term and a new term, 'e-business,' are often used interchangeably. For online retail selling, the term 'e-tailing' is sometimes used." Technically speaking, this definition may be too broad. We may be able to define e-commerce simply as the exchange of data, whether it be ideas, cash or Word documents. Regardless, e-commerce will affect your life in the near future, if it hasn't already.
