we are developing a WordPress website, and noticed that all URLs ends with a forward slash and when i re-typed the URLs without the slash, it re-directs me to the same page. so are those two different links? and what is the effect on the SEO & Emarketing of the website?

I think that's pretty standard and is probably a setting on the web server. It shouldn't make any difference to SEO or emarketing though you should probably make a decision of which versions to show in your marketing for consistency. I'd say it would be more normal to show/use version without the trailing slash in your marketing.
