In my opinion, eCommerce companies are very much involved in exploring the AI technology to gather more information and provide versatile options and opportunities for buyers to sell any products or advertise and create a customized platform for buyers to get fixated to their platform with various options and opportunities. Acquiring of many online shops was also seen as the eCommerce platform saw many exchanges and provided an area to be customized with only one area of sectors or products from one such group of fashionable areas.
