Believe it or not, 2013 is right around the corner, and we want you to be prepared. Thanks to some big advancements in eCommerce functionality for WordPress in 2012, the Best eCommerce Themes of 2013 are sure to be amazing. eCommerce is simply the commerce conducted through the Internet. With millions of websites, blogs, and Internet users, more and more businesses are taking their products online. The successes of sites like Amazon and Ebay has dispelled all skepticism about eCommerce websites – not to mention the scores of “mom and pop” operations selling everything from ebooks to digital hugs…yes…some people are making money selling completely made up things.
eCommerce works very simply. You create a website with the products you wish to sell, spread the word about your website through advertisements and other such methods, and have good content on your website that answers all questions of your prospective customers. Tools like PayPal allow you to easily setup a payment solution.
Note that the word “website” was echoing again and again in the above description of eCommerce websites. This is because eCommerce cannot exist without a website (although that is not entirely accurate…you could be selling apps which would mean you don’t necessarily NEED a website even though we’ve never seen a app provider that doesn’t).
