Types and scope of E-commerce

E-commerce can be divided into tow categories, which are business to business b2b and business to customer b2c. While b2b E-Commerce focuses on component-based integration of existing services into business processes of virtual enterprises and data exchange, b2c E–Commerce mostly addresses correctness issues with respect to the interactions of the various participants (Schuldt, Popovici et al., 2000).
There are four main areas in which companies conduct E-commerce (Loshin and
Vacca, 2004) these areas are :
• Direct marketing, selling, and service.
• Online banking and billing.
• Secure distribution of information.
• Value chain trading and corporate purchasing
The field of E-Commerce is very broad. There are many applications of E-Commerce such as home banking, shopping in electronic malls, buying stocks, finding a job, conducting an auction, collaborating electronically with business partners around the globe, and providing customer service. The implementation of various E-Commerce applications depends on four major support categories such as people, public policy, and marketing/advertising and supply chain logistics. In addition there has to be an Infrastructure support. The E-Commerce management within each organization co-ordinates the applications and infrastructure. In order to explain the relationships I have explained below the applications in the case of B2C E-Commerce.
