Hi, I'm Noah, and today I'm going to answer the question what is an E-Tail outlet? E-Tail is short for electronic retailer, meaning an E-Tail outlet is an online store or website through which a company sells its products. There are two different kinds of E-Tailers. The first are E-Tailers like amazon.com, which are exclusively on the Internet. This means there's no physical store where you can go and shop. All your purchases have to be made through the website, and are shipped from some warehouse. The other type of retailer are stores which exist physically, and have several different locations, like Best Buy, or Circuit City. Now, these E-Tailers you can shop at at the physical store, or order things online and have them delivered to you. The other thing you can do with several of these types of E-Tailers is in-store pickup. In-store pickup means that you can shop online, but pick up your item at the store after having paid for it by credit card through the website.
