e-Commerce refers to the technology-mediated exchanges and transactions between parties, as well as to the electronically based intra- or inter-organisational activities that facilitate such exchanges (Rayport and Jaworski, 2003). It is generally considered a subcategory of e-Business (Jelassi and Enders, 2004; Timmers, 2005) and sometimes the two terms are used interchangeably (CIPS: Electronic Commerce and e-Business).
