The Net can also be used to promote and sell products. This is called E-commerce. Here, potential customers visit a website on which they can get product information and even buy products online. The website here serves as a complete virtual shop, with lower expenses than a real shop.
One problem with selling products online is that the payment systems being used are not always very safe. Because credit cards are used to pay and the Internet has an open structure, the credit card numbers could be retrieved by hackers, who use them to buy their own goods. Faber Online Publishing uses payment methods using a secure socket layer, which is an encryption on the data that is being sent between the server and the client, ensuring safer transactions.
