Commerce has a universal language that is understood far and wide. It develops when there was no common tongue, when the roads are bad, when the harvest is ruined, when tyrants come and go. This all-weather phenomenon has evolved in sophistication and style whenever it could. It brought all the developments in transport and communication to push it forward. It enticed governments with opportunities of prosperity into making better policies and freer trade. It attracted entrepreneurs into devising novel ways and smart technology to provide greater information on, access to and control over various aspects of trade and commerce.
Ecommerce has attained mainstream status during the last few years. From being a technological marvel that only a few availed, Ecommerce has come from being a novelty into a business compulsion. To keep pace with the increase in trade, software, hardware and network resources and protocol have been evolving unceasingly. Today, E commerce has come of age where online revenues of many stores rival that of the brick-n-mortar stores.
