eRetail News

eRetailing has been one of the major growth industries on the internet. That trend is set to continue so it is more important than ever to stay up-to-date with developments. You can do that with the daily eRetail news email from Wiser. eRetailing is a growing phenomenon both for bricks-and-mortar businesses - those that have physical shops, as well as an online element, to their business - and for businesses that trade exclusively online. It is a subsection of e-commerce, albeit a large subsection, and covers selling things on the internet. This can be products or services, business to business or business to consumer. It is also referred to as e-tailing or electronic retailing. Future developments in the sector are likely to include further growth in the use of mobile devices, improved delivery services for customers, and targeted personal marketing through technologies like context-aware devices.
