  • Showing a navigable catalog for consumers to browse for products and services

  • Using HTML forms and other front-end data entry for the customer to enter purchasing information

  • Providing a secure Internet connection for the transmission of payment information

  • The eCommerce Engine

  • The commerce server is the "glue" that holds the entire e-commerce suite together. It is typically implemented as an add-on to the Web server.

  • Manages communication between the other components of the commerce package

  • Controls special features particular to a specific commerce package

  • May be tightly integrated with other suite components

  • May be modular, capable of interaction with several brands of suite components
