In this article, we have collected five tips to help you get you started with e-commerce:

The documents will reach the right recipient faster and will not be lost, the contracts will be signed and the invoices will be paid. Making sure your employees and customers can get better information faster is simply better for both parties.
2. Inform all your customers that you will be sending the documentation and invoices electronically. You can quickly argue the various concerns of your partners by explaining the previous point.
