An E-card is a postcard, sent by means of the Internet, usually through email.

A user sending an e-card to a person would select a pre-written card style with image and message, and would add their own personal message, and specify the recipient's email address. On sending the card, the recipient would receive an email with a link to the ecard provider's webpage, and this link would go to the ecard as a webpage, with the sender's personal message and card. Note that the actual card is not usually sent through the email, but only a link to the card hosted as a website.

The site used to be a free service predominantly for the use of ecards, however it has become commercial.

With the changing perceptions and uses for emails, the use of e-cards has fallen somewhat.
