Web Catalogues Has Seen A Significant Commercial Use Of E-Business Development
Catalogue based selling has seen a significant commercial use of
Internet web store business development. You just need go to E-Bay,
JC Penny, Joe Boxer and many other web based catalogue selling to
see examples of this type of e-commerce.
Catalogues range from simple text-based descriptions of items for
sale to impressive on-line, interactive, multimedia presentations
which may include color photos, animation, digital movies, and
music, as well as built-in ordering capabilities.
The key attraction of the electronic catalogue to Internet consumers
is the convenience of being able to access it almost immediately,
and in some cases, the entertainment value that is provided as part
of the presentation.
The key benefit to a business is that an electronic catalogue can
reach a tremendous number of potential customers and is likely to
cost significantly less than a printed catalogue to manufacture and
Another cost benefit to using an electronic web store is the ability
to use "Dropshipping" resources to place products in the catalogue
database. A dropshipper is a wholesaler or manufacturer that stocks
products in warehouses and will ship brand name products to your
customers with "your" company logo on the return address.
As a web store business entrepreneur you need not tie up your money
in stock inventory and save on the cost of warehousing storage
space. You get paid in advance, by your customers; then you forward
the order and wholesale price to the dropshipper saving you time and
money on packaging, labeling and shipping.
A dropshipper allows you to send packages to customers within the
country in which he is located even though you may be in business in
a country elsewhere. For instance, if you live in Italy and
advertise your product web store in the USA, most of you orders will
come from the USA. Since the goods are being stocked in the USA and
shipped within the USA, you don't have to concern yourself with
