Abstract

Business firms continue to explore innovative ways of conducting business for many reasons. For electronic commerce (e-commerce) the reasons may range from the maximization of profits through an enlarged clientele to the reduction of operating costs.

Through the Internet people are able to exchange information, even far afield, at reasonable costs, businesses are able to capture target markets for their products and services, and online shopping is no longer a pipe dream.
