CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

  1. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Electronic commerce (e-commerce) is a fairly new idea, and it is very common practice nowadays for businesses to conduct trade over the Internet. There are various advantages to e-commerce (e.g., lower cost, convenience). E-commerce can simply be defined as buying and selling merchandise or services online. Most successful businesses today have their own websites. Today, it is possible to conduct business nationally and globally with a click of a fingertip due to the worldwide use of the Internet. To be successful in the global marketplace, businesses need to develop culturally friendly ecommerce websites. When conducting business online, factors such as region and culture, web content accessibility, ease of use, secure authentication, payment, fraud detection, performance, trust, stability, technology, and convenience are vital to the businesses’ and consumers’ satisfaction and interest.

        The effects of the evolution of the internet and web access to today’s world can be likened to the effects the industrial revolution had on the agrarian societies centuries ago. This has made doing business internationally even much more easier and faster to do, and it has brought many geographically distant countries even more closer in the virtual world. New innovations in telecommunications, the continuous development of the internet and emergence of e-commerce have enhanced the globalization of markets (Emerald Insight Staff 2005, 25).

        The explosion in the use of the internet has created opportunities for several innovations. Electronic commerce, which is one of the most interesting and important aspect of this explosion has changed the way businesses operate. Large amounts of business organization now offer goods & services as well as communicate with their suppliers and buyers over the internet. Electronic commerce has brought about a highly competitive market and as a result large brick-and-mortar companies are rethinking their business models with the aim of staying competitive. A report says that by 2014, over 1 trillion dollars in revenue will be generated by e-commerce worldwide (Digital economy, [ref. 26 September 2011]). This figure is evident in the speed at which e-commerce has risen within the past few years.

E-commerce is attracting converts at an overwhelmingly increasing level. In short, e-commerce has moved beyond its developing days and is getting down to serious business, becoming a natural part of multi-channel efforts to make sales and improve the bottom line. (Lou [ref. 26 September 2011]). In order to rip the full benefits of e-commerce, businesses are redesigning their processes as a whole rather than doing the same things in a different way.
