Electronic commerce (or e-commerce) covers all business conducted by means of computer networks. Progress in telecommunications and computer technologies in recent years have made computer networks a vital part of the economic infrastructure. More and more companies are aiding transactions over web. People can purchase goods with a click of mouse button without moving out of their house or office. Similarly online services such as banking, ticketing (including airlines, bus, railways), bill payments, hotel booking etc. have been of tremendous benefit for the customers. Most experts believe that overall e-commerce will increase exponentially in coming years. Business to business transactions will represent the largest revenue but online retailing will also enjoy a drastic growth. Online businesses like financial services, travel, entertainment, and groceries have grown in a positive speed over the years.
For developing countries like India, e-commerce offers considerable opportunity. E-commerce in India is still in budding stage, but even the most-pessimistic projection specifies a bang. Amongst the Asian nations, the growth of e-commerce in India between 1997 and 2003 was highest to make a successful e-commerce transaction both the payment and delivery services must be made efficient. There has been a rise in the number of companies' taking up e-commerce in the recent past. Major Indian portal sites have also shifted towards e-commerce instead of depending on advertising revenue. Many sites are now selling a diverse range of products and services from flowers, greeting cards, and movie tickets to groceries, electronic gadgets, shoes and computers etc. Delivery of goods to consumer by couriers and postal services is not very reliable in smaller cities, towns and rural areas. However, many Indian Banks have put the Internet banking facilities in place for the up coming e-commerce market. The speed post and courier system has also improved tremendously in recent years. Modern computer technology like secured socket layer (SSL) helps to protect against payment fraud, and to share information with suppliers and business partners. With further improvement in payment and delivery system it is expected that India will soon become a major player in the e-commerce market. Many companies also provides “cash on Delivery” service where people can access goods through e-commerce without owning a credit card.
