Abstract

The explosive growth of the Internet in the last two decades has fuelled a revolution in the way commerce is conducted. Electronic commerce allows businesses to reach out to global markets that are no longer bound by geography or time. Increasingly, governments, businesses and consumers are using information technology and the Internet to electronically exchange information, produce, market, buy, sell and even deliver products and services to places virtually unreachable before. Relative to traditional practices and procedures, e-commerce increases convenience and choice, fosters competition and more importantly generates new business opportunities and market efficiencies.
