A few years ago, if we ever heard the term E-commerce, all that one would think of is the procurement and selling of goods using the internet. But today, there is so much more to it, other than just buying or selling. On the other hand, imagine we had to compare the olden days’ commercial activity. For instance, from the 90s to today’s, wouldn’t we think of a man writing on paper and gradually processing the activity? But then, could people have imagined that robots or drones would reach the doorstep of the customer’s house to deliver the products a few years later? Well, whether we thought or not doesn’t really matter. The reality is that it has become possible now.
