E-commerce has provided accessibility to medication
There is certain medication that was hard to buy long ago before e-commerce was invented. People had to wait for days in order to receive medication. Pharmacy companies in remote regions around the world had to order medication which will arrive after a couple of months. This process was tedious and ineffective. This caused the death of many people in regions which had no access to medication. However with e-commerce pharmacies can now just place an order electronically and the medication will be delivered.
E-commerce has reduced the need to travel in order to make a purchase
Before the advent of e-commerce buyers needed to travel in order to make a purchase. This process consumed time and money. However with e-commerce you just need to find a credible site and buy products online.
