It's easy, time and energy saver, and you can find a lot of cheap stuffs online. Just make sure you deal with a reputable sites because you can be easily scammed online. That's a fact and that's most online buyers don't want to happen to them.

I guess what the OP meant are the benefits of ecommerce over Yahoo stores, Ebay stores, Amazon stores and affiliates stores, in fact you can use all of them if you wish.

In my opinion what seems to work is a combinaison of platforms like Ebay store, Amazon store and affiliates store to sell 10% of what you are selling from your ecommerce or Yahoo store to bring you traffic and potential customers without a huge cost.

You can also master a PPC compaign for your ecommerce.

As far as if ecommerce are secure, well you have to setup what you need.

First you will need a SSL, payment providers, and it will work like any merchant site.

E commerce is such type of business where you can manage all you things from your website itself. You have to just put your all products on a particular website and promote only that one website instead of any other offline advertisement.

I used an dynamic integrated statistics software on my site, the name is Metasun and works only with asp. The wonderful thing with this software when you have a PPC compaign is that you can generated specific urls with the code you want for each keywords or each keyphrases, you can know exactly what you are doing.

I am sure you can find other softwares doing similar functions in PHP, or else.

Ecommerce offered many advantages to companies and customers but it also caused many problems.

Well, I assume we are pretending what the OP has asked. As for comparing say a Magento site to an Amazon store, we would say it is quite easier for your products to show up in search engines when you post them in Amazon like sites. But, then you will need to pay them the fees and it is not really like your own store.
As for owning your own site, then you should invest quite a bit on promoting it and making sure it is within search engine guidelines.
As which we would pick? if we have the investment, sure we go for both with unique product descriptions on both.

Disadvantages of Ecommerce

Any one, good or bad, can easily start a business. And there are many bad sites which eat up customers’ money.
There is no guarantee of product quality.
Mechanical failures can cause unpredictable effects on the total processes.
As there is minimum chance of direct customer to company interactions, customer loyalty is always on a check.
There are many hackers who look for opportunities, and thus an ecommerce site, service, payment gateways, all are always prone to attack.

Can you be more specific. Any website gives you more options to market plus gives the users the comfort to shop from the comfort of their seat. What else?
