    We investigate e-commerce success factors concerning their impact on the success of commerce transactions between businesses companies. In scientific literature, many e-commerce success factors are introduced. Most of them are focused on companies' website quality. They are evaluated concerning companies' success in the business-to- consumer (B2C) environment where consumers choose their preferred e-commerce websites based on these success factors e.g. website content quality, website interaction, and website customization. In contrast to previous work, this research focuses on the usage of existing e-commerce success factors for predicting successfulness of business-to-business (B2B) ecommerce. The introduced methodology is based on the identification of semantic textual patterns representing success factors from the websites of B2B companies. The successfulness of the identified success factors in B2B ecommerce is evaluated by regression modeling. As a result, it is shown that some B2C e-commerce success factors also enable the predicting of B2B e-commerce success while others do not. This contributes to the existing literature concerning ecommerce success factors. Further, these findings are valuable for B2B e-commerce websites creation

    Get PDF
    In 2001, the dot.com bubble burst and U.S. e-commerce growth slowed. Slower e-commerce growth may signal changes in the use and perceptions of the Internet and e-commerce in agribusiness companies. Agribusiness firm managers were surveyed in 2004 to identify agribusiness use of the Internet and e-commerce and to solicit their perceptions about the Internet and e-commerce. The survey was developed from a similar survey conducted in 1999. In 2004, agribusiness firms were using e-commerce more with their suppliers than with their customers. Perceptions regarding Internet and e-commerce varied by the intensity of e-commerce use. Given the variety of opinions regarding the Internet and e-commerce, e-commerce capabilities in the agribusiness industry will remain highly diverse in the near term.agribusiness, e-commerce, Internet, Agribusiness, Research and Development/Tech Change/Emerging Technologies,

    In the last decade, agent-based e-commerce has emerged as a potential role for the next generation of e-commerce. How to create agents for e-commerce applications has become a serious consideration in this field. This paper proposes a new scheme named agent fabrication and elaborates its implementation in multi-agent systems based on the SAFER (Secure Agent Fabrication, Evolution & Roaming) architecture. First, a conceptual structure is proposed for software agents carrying out e-commerce activities. Furthermore, agent module suitcase is defined to facilitate agent fabrication. With these definitions and facilities in the SAFER architecture, the formalities of agent fabrication are elaborated. In order to enhance the security of agent-based e-commerce, an infrastructure of agent authorization and authentication is integrated in agent fabrication. Our implementation and prototype applications show that the proposed agent fabrication scheme brings forth a potential solution for creating agents in agent-based e-commerce applications

    The aim of this study is to investigate those factors that influence SMEs in developing countries in adopting e-commerce. This study is motivated by the fact that the adoption of e-commerce by SMEs, especially in developing countries, is still very far behind the adoption by large companies. Yet to be able to survive in the new economic era, which is the information era; businesses, including SMEs, are forced to adopt e-commerce. Non-adopters will be left behind by the adopters. In addition, studies regarding e-commerce adoption by SMEs are rarely found. Therefore, the results of this study provide a timely understanding of e-commerce adoption by SMEs in developing countries. The model developed in this study is based on the TOE framework. Eleven variables are proposed as the factors that influence SMEs in adopting of e-commerce. These are organized into four groups, namely: technological factors, organizational factors, environmental factors and individual factors. Based on a survey of 292 Indonesian SMEs, it was found that perceived benefits, technology readiness, owners’ innovativeness, owners’ IT ability and owners’ IT experience are the determinant factors that influence Indonesian SMEs in their adopting e-commerce

    Organizational perceptions of e-commerce: Re-assessing the benefits

    Get PDF
    This paper reports on preliminary findings from a wider and more in-depth study of six traditional organizations from different sectors that have successfully introduced e-commerce initiatives. The research adopted a case study approach, within which a questionnaire, identifying 16 generic benefits synthesized from the literature, was administered. The organizations were also asked to characterize whether e-commerce was strategic for them or not. The findings suggest that those organizations that perceived e-commerce to be strategic tended to consider intangible benefits as more important than tangible benefits, indicating perhaps a move away from the traditional view of e-commerce as a marketing driver to increase or create sales. Those organizations perceiving e-commerce as non-strategic rated the tangible benefits in much the same way as the strategic organizations, but rated the intangibles lower. Also it was found that e-commerce was important as a communication tool, not only with customers, as might be expected, but also with staff within the organization. The value of intra-organizational e-commerce was also found to be important, perhaps more than previously thought, as was its use in communicating and disseminating knowledge. The findings also reflect the importance of the sector and environment of the organization in determining their perceptions of e-commerce

    Transaksi e-commerce merupakan aktifitas perdagangan yang dilakukan dalam dunia maya yang berkaitan dengan pembelian, penjualan, pemasaran barang ataupun jasa dengan memanfaatkan sistem elektronik seperti internet ataupun jaringan komputer. Transaksi e-commerce sulit untuk dilacak, padahal potensi pajak e-commerce cukup besar, sehingga perlu pengawasan dari pemerintah khususnya Direktorat Jendral Pajak. Permasalahan dalam Tesis ini: (1) Bagaimanakah pelaksanaan pemungutan dan pengawasan pajak penghasilan terhadap penyedia jasa internet, penjual dan pembeli sebagai wajib pajak terhadap transaksi perdagangan secara elektronik (E-Commerce)? (2) Apakah yang menjadi kendala dan upaya dalam pelaksanaan pengawasan pemungutan pajak penghasilan terhadap penyedia jasa internet, penjual dan pembeli sebagai wajib pajak dalam transaksi elektronik (E- Commerce)? Menjawab perumusan masalah tersebut dilakukan penelitian yakni di Provinsi Jawa Barat yaitu di Kantor Pajak Pratama Kota Bandung. Adapun metode penelitian yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah metode pendekatan yuridis empiris. Hasil penelitian ini adalah: (1) Sistem pemungutan pajak yang dianut oleh Undang-undang perpajakan Nasional adalah Sistem Self Assesment. Pengawasan perpajakan di bidang e-commerce masih terkendala dalam hal melacak atau tracking para pelaku usaha online yang terlibat. Masih banyak pelaku transaksi perdagangan secara elektronik (E-Commerce) yang tidak melaporkan / membayarkan Pajak Penghasilannya sesuai dengan ketentuan yang berlaku atau Ilegal. (2) Faktor Penghambat dalam hal pengawasan dan pemungutan perpajakan atas transaksi e-commerce adalah keberadaan sistem Internal dari DJP yang belum mampu memberikan kebutuhan data yang tepat untuk para pelaku usaha online dan tingkat kepatuhan kesadaran Wajib Pajak tersebut untuk menjalankan kewajiban perpajakan. Upaya pemungutan perpajakan atas transaksi e-commerce yang dapat dilakukan antara lain: Membangun satu jaringan internet dengan kecepatan tinggi (ultra highspeed internet network) dan Meningkatkan mutu sumber daya manusia untuk menghadapi tantangan perubahan teknologi peradaban. Saran dalam penelitian tesis ini adalah: Transaksi perdagangan melalui e- commerce sulit dilacak tanpa tersedianya data atau informasi yang diperlukan, terutama apabila transaksi tersebut dilakukan melalui server yang berada di luar negeri sehingga harus diakui profesionalisme pegawai Dirjen pajak masih perlu banyak ditingkatkan
