Abstract

This research is a descriptive study to identify some of the factors that contribute to the successful use of e-business. The research was focused on the retail industry in Ireland and more specifically on existing on-line retailers of Irish-made gifts. The study was conducted using a postal survey. The research found that specific organizational factors—early adoption of web technology, internal IS/IT expertise, having an e-business strategy and a person who champions the e-business project—result in more successful e-business web sites. Further, the research found no evidence to support the belief that certain product types are more likely to be successful on the Web.
