A selection of resources exploring all about electronic commerce

After publishing an article about Amazon FBA, our editorial team decided to dig a little deeper and find more information about E-commerce, and so we asked our correspondent to carry out a research to gather more information about E-commerce.

First things first. What is E-commerce? E-commerce is the process of buying and selling products and services online, as simple as that. However, you can also explain affiliate marketing as buying and selling traffic and profiting from differences in prices, but it’s not that simple, right? It’s way more complicated, and so you need more background information to make profit in E-commerce, that’s why this collection of articles, podcasts and YouTube channels will come in handy.

But you can’t learn everything you need to know from a single article, so let’s dig deeper.
