Electronic Commerce (e-commerce)

By Anonymous writer - Glossary

Electronic commerce literally refers to commercial transactions carried out on online or electronic devices or media such as the Internet, mobiles, TV and Minitel.

In practice, it refers to transactions done online whatever the mode of access or device used, e.g. computer, smartphone, console, iPad etc.

We speak about both direct and indirect commerce:

  • Direct: in this case, the order, payment and delivery are all done online directly.
  • Indirect: in this second case, the order and payment are done online while the delivery of the good is done through conventional means such as a courrier or the post.
