Written by  Tuesday, 16 July 2013

In short: e-commerce is the buying and selling of products and/or services over the Internet.

Some of the potential benefits of allowing your customers to shop online include:

What do I need to start an e-commerce site?

  • Domain Name (www.yourcompany.co.eg or www.yourcompany.com)
  • Monthly hosting
  • Shopping Cart system
  • Merchant account i.e Paypal (in order to accept credit card payments)
  • SSL Certificate (to ensure that your site is safe and secure to use. SSL is a system in which web servers and browsers encrypt and decrypt all information that are transmitted and received)
  • Database support

Interesting Statistics:

With Egypt’s economy in disarray and its prospects looking increasingly bleak two years into the post-revolutionary period, there are few sectors to which terms like “growing” and “attractive” are still applied. This is not the case however, for Egypt’s internet economy, which in 2011 accounted for 1.1 per cent of GDP, according to a 2012 Boston Consulting Group (BCG) report.

E-commerce in particular, generally defined as the buying and selling of goods and services online, has attracted millions of dollars from local and international investors eager to tap into the potential of the Egyptian market, which, with its 31 million internet users, has the largest population of internet users in the MENA region. (ref.: http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/64966.aspx)

Do I really need an e-commerce site?

As a guideline, answer the following questions to determine whether you need an e-commerce site:     

  • Do you want a website that can serve as an online shop front or showroom?
  • Do you want to sell your products or services online?
  • Do you understand your target market and their receptiveness to online shopping?
  • Do you want to enable your clients to shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

 If you answered yes to these questions, you can benefit from having an e-commerce site.
