Electronic commerce, commonly written as e-commerce


 Is the trading or facilitation of trading in products or services using computer networks, such as the Internet. Electronic commerce draws on technologies such as mobile commerce, electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, Internet marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems. Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web for at least one part of the transaction's life cycle, although it may also use other technologies such as e-mail.

  • Business-to-business buying and selling
  • Gathering and using demographic data through web contacts and social media

  • Marketing to prospective and established customers by e-mail or fax (for example, with newsletters)

Webnett has been using Shopio since 2012. Clients find the software user friendly and the ability to manage taxes at the country, state and even down to the zip code level. That’s something not found in every cart.

Shopio has pretty standard product management tools but it does give you the ability to add “Brands” to the system, which is nice.  It’ll give you the ability to create multiple product options (variants) and add multiple images to products.  Other than that you should only expect Shopio to collect basic product information.  We really liked the tight integration with both Google Adwords and Google Webmaster Tools, along with the fact that adding additional content pages is a breeze with Shopio.  You simply click “add page”, put in your content, images, video or anything else you need and click “Save”. Quick and easy, just like we like it.


From the store management perspective, you can expect more from Shopio  when compared to a SquareSpace or Wix. For example, you can select if registration is required, not required or optional during checkout. You can control units (Metric or Imperial) and currency.  The search engine optimization tools are sufficient for users and Shopio includes a feature we see lacking in most carts, URL redirects.
