Liked article on revenue models
July 15, 2014
I was on the hunt for some ecommerce business model articles to cite in a blog post I am writing about dropshipping.
I really like the article that you wrote about Revenue models.
I actually just put together an infographic on what ecommerce businesses are worth and how to value them.
Thought it might be down your alley about what ecommerce businesses are worth today.
Wondering if you'd like to check it out? :)
Paul - Australia (25114)
I'm glad you liked the article on revenue models. It would be interesting to see the results of your research.
Brief summary on e-commerce
December 12, 2013
Hi. I need a brief summary about this topic 'e-commerce versus traditional business'
tarshanan - Malaysia (24316)
Although both traditional commerce and e-commerce concern the buying and selling of goods and services, e-commerce performs a different way for marketing and purchasing.
Traditional commerce usually consists of an interaction between salesperson and buyer in a place of business. E-commerce is usually done completely online and is impersonal.
There are advantages and disadvantages for both the seller and buyer in online commerce.
Needs advice on starting a business
September 16, 2013
Please i need tips and advice for starting these type of business here in Nigeria.
James - Nigeria (24019)
What sort of business do you want to start? Is it an online business or some sort of store? Are you planning on providing a service or selling some products?
These are things you need to define before even attempting or planning on starting a business.
Selling food online
April 13, 2013
Hi, Good day.
I want to sell food stuffs via online. Pls give some critical tips to facilitate this in our local market. People use smartphones here being a affluent society.
Thanks in advance.
MuBARAK - Kuwait (23616)
You need to set up a website where you list the foods available and their prices, as well as any delivery charge. One example that delivers food in Kuwait is IEatOnline.
Customers can phone you, send text messages, or email requests. They should also be able to pay via their smartphone.
The big thing is advertising. You need to let people in your local area know your website address, as well as your telephone number. Advertise your service and web address, and hopefully you will soon start to get customers.
Best wishes for success in your business.
How can one get involved in e-commerce?
January 24, 2013
Pls, how can one get involved in this ecommerce business?
- USA (23147)
Any time you buy or sell over the Internet, you are involved in e-commerce. You probably want to sell things through websites, as your own e-commerce business.
Some people use eBay to sell goods. Others create a website and offer goods to customers. Payment can be done through PayPal or similar payment companies.

Why choose e-commerce over traditional commerce?
March 5, 2012
Describing the elements of e-commerce, why would you choose it over traditional commerce in setting up a business?
Sibawei - Ghana (22484)
If you have a business where customers can order over the Internet or you can deal with suppliers online, e-commerce is the best bet. However, many businesses combine both traditional commerce and e-commerce to take full advantage of each.

Selling wooden crafted products at global level
January 23, 2010
i am going to start an e-commerce portal to sell wooden handy crafted products in global level.
i am confused in fixing a good name for the business.
i read your article and got some very good ideas.
please suggest me some good names.
sandeep - India (19102)
Typically, global customers will use a search engine, such as Google, to find products they want. They seldom search for a specific business, unless it is well-known.
Your business name could be "Handy Wooden Crafted Products" or something descriptive like that. A website name could be "www.handywoodenproducts.com" or "www.handy-wooden-products.com". Those are memorable names.
What is more important is that you have a web page for each of your major products, with the title of the page the name of the product.
Consider what your customers ask for when they want to buy from you. Do you have some common names for your products that people would use in a search? For example, if you were selling "mahogany serving plates", that expression must be the title of a page in your site.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in your new enterprise.
How does an online business make money?
December 1, 2009
How do online business make money?
Damalie - Uganda (18763)
The business should have products available for sale that can be readily mailed or shipped to buyers in different areas. When a person comes to the business website and sees a product that he would like to buy, he can click on a link that will allow him to purchase the product via credit card. Once the credit card transaction is authorized, the business will ship the product to the buyer.
Many businesses use a credit card service that authorizes the payment and transfers it to the business bank account. Some businesses do this themselves through special software. If you businesses allow cash payments to be mailed to them, if the person does not have a credit card.
Instead of shipping the product themselves, some businesses hire a service to do the packaging and shipping for them.
The advantage of an online business is that much of it can be automatic and done 24 hours a day.
Wantts tests on e-commerce
May 1, 2008

Babiker - Sudan (15843)

Advantages and disadvantages to the seller
March 27, 2008
Could you elaborate on the advantages and disadvantages to the seller
Charmaine - Trinidad (15605)
A major advantage to the e-commerce seller is that business can be done 24 hours a day with no personal contact necessary. The major disadvantage is that the product must be shipped and that some customers may not have valid credit cards.
