Digital Commerce

Brian Quinn and Clinton Anderson

What is digital commerce?

Digital Commerce is defined as the electronic selling and buying of goods (Janssen 2013). The saturation that we have had as a society into technology allows us to purchase anything we want from within the safety of our home. This allows for an incredibly efficient and quick way of doing business from the safety of our homes. However, it does present some problems for us, as illegal operations and criminals use the same tools for shopping and are able to steal from other people with ease. Below is a video showing some safety tips on how to make sure that you're on a secure site.
