DFHYCGVSDYHJ E-Tailing E-tailing or E-retailing refers to the selling of retail goods electronically over the Internet. The term is a short form for “electronic retailing”, and surfaced in the 1990s for being frequently used over the Internet. The term is an inevitable addition to other similar terms such as e-business, e-mail, and e-commerce. E-tailing usually refers to the business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions. Online retailing is classified into three main categories: 1. Click – The businesses that operate only through the online channel fall into this category.Prominent examples in this category include: Dell, Amazon.
com and e-Bay. 2. Click and Brick – The businesses that use both the online as well as the offline channel fall into this category. Common example includes: Barnes and Noble’s. 3. Brick and Mortar – This is the conventional mode of retailing. The businesses that do not use the latest retailing channels and still rely upon the conventional mode belong to this category.
E-tailing offers the consumers huge amounts of information in the form of web sites with useful links to similar sites that allows consumers to compare products by looking at individual items.The convenience of online shopping is unmatched indeed. Shopping out of your home or office reduces the stresses of waiting in lines and dealing with irritating sales people. E-tailing causes problems with fit, since the consumer cannot try the items on. Return policies may also act as turn offs and items can be difficult to return. The shipping and handling costs may turn the customers away. E-tailing requires technology savvy customers and this puts a limit on its potential reach. E-tailing is emerging as an interesting phenomenon in the retail industry that is on a rise despite the disadvantages associated with it.
