The very nature of e-commerce is quite different today from its inception in the 1990s. We now have the ability to offer a personalized shopping experience that creates repeat business and increased revenues. We can offer an array of payment types, can sell goods and services both in store and online, and can have feature-rich functionality to better target customers and manage operations.
