Techopedia Explains E-Tailware

E-tailware, as mentioned above, includes things like shopping carts and catalog software, but always within the context of the retailer’s vision. These types of software tools are often heavily branded to create a digital impression of the retailer online. For instance, massive online portals for companies like Amazon and Ebay have revolutionized e-tailware in the last couple of decades. But smaller retailers also develop their own e-tailware to compete in a digital marketplace.
