A virtual store is in principle a website oriented to the detailed presentation of products or services, for the purpose of selling through the site that is the subject of this discussion.
Through the site because a site that presents products but does not allow their purchase through the site is not a virtual store, but at most a catalog of products, useful, but often incomplete.
The virtual shops usually present the products in an organized form, by categories and subcategories, allowing easy finding of the desired product, also allow the presentation of product information, often allow product comparison, presentation of product images and, most importantly, of a purchase price.
A site of this type, allows the visitor to launch the purchase order of the product on the Internet, its payment can be made online, by card or SMS, or by conventional means, such as the payment of repayment or through the bank. In these last two cases, usually, at the time of ordering, the customer receives a proforma invoice that allows the subsequent purchase of the purchased product.
Sites of this type are very popular in certain fields of activity such as selling flowers, jewelry, clothes, stationery, computers and IT accessories, consumer products in general, but not only, online commerce is open to any type of commercial activity, from that is why we can find virtual shops in less known areas, which at first glance would not lend itself so easily to online commerce.
Keep in mind that enriching your business by opening a virtual store is beneficial, giving your business access to an emerging market, virtually unlimited as a space, the limits of the internet being practically non-existent.
