e-commerce

E-commerce (electronic commerce) is the purchase and distribution of goods or services across the internet.

This method of business is seen as a viable alternative to export driven economies to overcome geographical distance.

While large organisations (such as amazon.com) dominate media attention, e-commerce also allows less-commercial ventures such as artists collectives to capture and benefit from international exposure.
