People visit your store to look for their desired products, buy them online and get them in the mail a few days later. You can do all of these from your computer. • Virtual merchants have several features that turn a simple website into an online store. It has e-commerce abilities in the form of processing payments and shipping the products physically or digitally. Some traditional stores may establish an online presence that only describes them and the products they offer, but they may not sell anything on the web. Benefits of a Virtual Merchant
