Any business that wants to stay in business is going to have to tackle the e-commerce route. Too many people now expect a host of options to be able to pay for their products and services.

That means if you don’t have a site that enables shopping, you’re missing out on generations of potential business. What does e-commerce look like and what do you need to know? This graphic explains it.
