16. What is meant by E-commerce?

Most commonly, it is in the form of an online store where products and services are sold online and payments are accepted through an online interface and processed electronically.
17. Will my E-commerce store be successful?
There is no valid answer to this question as the success depends on many factors. There is a wrong notion with people that once the online store is set up, orders come on their own. Don't fall into this myth face the reality! And the reality is that every online store needs proper promotion and exposure. There has to be a well-defined marketing strategy that should be properly implemented.
18. How will I accept payments for my E-business?
There are plenty of options to accept payments for your E-business. One way is to handle the transactions offline. In this process, you can specify your contact address and numbers on your website and can ask your customers to send the payments directly through checks and money orders. Another way to make the transactions is through the merchant accounts. You can collect the credit card information of your customers via email and then process them offline using the merchant account.
19. What actually is a Merchant Account?
Merchant accounts are the accounts used by the merchants to receive and process credit card transactions. Whenever a customer makes a payment for a product or service purchased online, the bank debits his account and at the same time the bank also deposits the amount in the merchant account. Thus, the Merchant account is like a deposit location for the customer. The bank that you choose to provide this service charges a small percentage of the fees as its service charge.
20. What is a Payment Gateway?
Payment gateway is a service that is used by the business owners to process credit card transactions while accepting online orders from the customers. In E-commerce, payments are accepted through "Payment Gateways". Different banks offer these payment gateways and other dedicated Payment Processors. The payment gateway integration can be done with our shopping cart so that the customers can easily process credit cards on our websites. Our programmers are familiar with the most popular gateways. Integration with payment gateways helps the business to go online & be available to users worldwide 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
21. What is meant by SSL certification?
In order to ensure your customers that the information (credit card details) they are providing to you will be in safe hands, SSL certification is required. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a method used to ensure that unauthorized users will not be able to access the information submitted by your customers. When it is used, your customer provides the information on an SSL-secured form, it is then encrypted using a special 'certificate key' and later decrypted using a different key. An SSL certificate is an electronic document that contains the information necessary to establish a secure SSL connection. When used in your E-business, the site collecting the credit card details and the site to which the details are being transmitted, both need SSL certification.
22. What are the benefits of E-commerce?
There are two major benefits of E-commerce. Firstly, the overhead costs of conducting an E-business through a virtual organization are much less as compared to the cost of a physical storefront. Secondly, you have the ability to reach the customers all over the world rather than a restricted geographical area, thus increasing the reach and target audience for your business.
