    E-commerce has helped to improve the performance of any company regardless of its location in the world. But, how will e-commerce help a company exactly? Cost reduction? Profit improvement? Don't forget the cost of setting up the system may be quite high in term of hardware, software and manpower training, etc. What do you think?

      By giving you access to a much larger client base.

      Whether the expense is worthwhile, and whether it's worth doing at all depends on a whole lot of other factors you need to consider.

      And if you decide to give it a go, you can start off on a small scale without a significant investment.

    I think E-commerce (internet based business solutions)((Buying online versus the store)) Will become a house hold thing as it already is in many urban areas but it will not replace the convince and ease of buying from grocery stores or gas stations where immediate gratification to your needs are met within minutes instead of days.

    Nothing beats picking up and looking at and SMELLING fruit at the grocery store or fresh food stand and deciding it is what you want to eat.

    But as far as finding the lowest cost of electronics, software, and high priced goods that people spend time researching before purchasing; Yes e-commerce will be the solution

    coming from a marketing and business entrepreneur,

    Essentially e-commerce automates a number of business processes that traditionally require manual work and maintenance.
