eCommerce, the buying and selling of products over the Internet, is a fast-growing field. In 2010, the Pew Research Center reported that 78% of American internet users go online to research goods and services that they’re considering buying, and 66% have made at least one purchase. Obviously, the online marketplace is enormous, and eCommerce is no longer only for huge retailers like Amazon. It’s becoming equally accessible to smaller businesses, which now need dynamic websites in order to compete.
