For example, the online income tax filing, internet portals such as Prodigy, online billing and online banking. Apart from this, ecommerce also means selling and buying services and goods over the net and electronic transfer of funds.

Since internet expanded very quickly and is present all around the world now, the number and quantity of business transactions done on the internet has grown exponentially. Many transactions are completely electronic like subscribing to websites and so on. But, most ecommerce businesses transport physical goods from one place to another. Then, the payment is done electronically. Online retailers are referred to as e – tailors and online retail as e – tail. All major brands in retail have an ecommerce website.

When we talk about ecommerce, it can range from digital content that can be used immediately to traditional services or goods, to other services that facilitate ecommerce. At the level of the consumer, ecommerce is done only on the internet. A consumer can enter your online store and purchase anything ranging from books to food to real estate and cars. All your banking requirements can also be completed through the internet. He can also transfer funds, buy or sell stocks, and pay his bills through the internet.

Though everything is so fast and easy, there is 1 major concern, Security. If you want to purchase any goods online, then ensure that the merchant website’s payment system is protected. Experienced users do business transactions only with those sites that are protected.

The most advanced and widely used security tool is the SSL. The payment gateways should be protected by this protocol. This protocol encrypts all the information that is sent from the ecommerce website and decrypts the information that comes in.

You can also add auxiliary security systems to provide additional protection for your customers. Implement the protocols developed by MasterCard and Visa.

One of the most critical issues for all the large organisations is: protecting their information or data or databases. There are several ways to do it and you should choose the best one for your ecommerce site.
