E-commerce (short for electronic commerce) involves the buying or selling of goods and services over the Internet. According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, total e-commerce sales for 2013 were estimated at $263.3 billion — not bad, considering that the first e-commerce service was introduced in the United States 30 years ago!
