A Webshop is an online shop or store. It is an ecommerce application used for business-to-consumer [B2C] or business-to-business [B2B] processes.

It is nothing else than a virtual store which gives it’s visitor the possibility to browse through it’s inventory, acquire information about price, quality and special features of each item, chose an item to buy, pay online through secure payment processors and provide the data needed so that the purchased product can be shipped to his door.

Modern, professional Webshops provide additional features for the convenience of the visitor such as the possibility to search for a specific item, to look through product reviews written by former buyers and check hit lists of the most popular items in any category.
