As we know from the definition of it that it is a process by which you can make money online. Now you may think that you can also make money online through eCommerce also but let clear things to you. In eCommerce, you can make money by selling something that can be physical products or nonphysical, and it’s more of like a direct give and take process.
But in eBusiness, there is nothing like that. Let’s go a little bit deeper into it with examples…
We all know youtube, right? It is an eBusiness platform because here people do not sell or buy anything but they can earn money online from youtube. It is a free video streaming platform where people upload their videos and others watch them. You can open a channel on youtube anytime and start uploading your videos right away.
Youtube is a unique platform for video content creators. You upload any unique content on youtube but remember you cannot upload videos that are created and presented by others.
It is also a way to earn money online and unlike youtube, here you can present written content for readers. Just like youtube you cannot copy other’s content and publish it. There are tons of blog sites where you can publish your content or you can make your own blog site and then write and publish your content there. Bloggers make money in many ways, including payment for product updates, sales of their own e-books, ads, or consulting.
So to get the answer to, “What is the difference between eCommerce and eBusiness?” let’s summarize all the things above. eCommerce is a product buying and selling process and it is part of eBusiness. On the other hand, eBusiness is a money-making process online and it does not need any buying and selling at all. That’s all for today, hope you like it.
