D- commerce is a type of e-commerce used by organization that deliver products online. It is considered as e-commerce, but it deals with exchange of electronic goods. Customers start an account with a digital commercial company and can purchase text and content from publishers, but they only have to relay their financial information once.
This makes for a more secure online environment. This term is far more deep than online transaction which includes research, development, marketing, servicing, selling and buying products (the entire customer experience) for all devices and platforms including desktops, mobile/tablets, social networks, etc.
The pace of progress of digital commerce means it's moving from a short story film into a rapid montage of online customer experience snapshots.
We, as individuals "feel" this every day, using search, using online commerce, so organizations need to keep appealing to the individuals to ensure their experience is a good one. The shake up in digital customer experience, and the demands of digital commerce, will continue to grow - we know the solution is better control over the priority aspects of customer experience coupled with the creative differentiator that rarely lies within the technology but is enabled by it.
The future of this space is fascinating - if only we had more time away from the daily demands now to wonder what it might bring.
