11E-Commerce Business Models ECOMM ADSWhy did so many dot.com companies go out of business in 2000 and 2001?E-commerce companies focus their operations in different parts of the value chainTypesMerchantBrokerageAdvertisingMixedInformediarySubscriptionADWORDSThe merchant model transfers the old retail model to the e- commerce world by using the medium of the Internet.Using the brokerage model brings sellers and buyers together on the Web and collects commissions on transactions between these parties.The advertising model is an extension of traditional advertising media, such as radio and television. Directories such as Yahoo! provide content ( similar to radio and TV) to users for free. By creating more traffic with this free content, they can charge companies for placing banner ads or leasing spots on their sites.The mixed model refers to generating revenue from more than one source.
12Major Categories of E-Commerce Exhibit 8.3Major E-Commerce CategoriesMajor Categories of E-CommerceUnder the informediary model, e- commerce sites collect information on consumers and businesses and then sell this information to other companies for marketing purposes.Under the subscription model, e- commerce sites sell digital products or services to customers. Business- to- consumer ( B2C) companies sell directly to consumers.
13B2B E-Commerce B2Bs use these additional technologies extensively: IntranetsExtranetsVirtual private networksElectronic data interchange (EDI)Electronic funds transfer (EFT)Lowers production costs and improves accuracyBy eliminating many labor-intensive tasks• Fulfillment— Delivering products or services to customers is multifaceted, depending on whether physical products ( books, videos, CDs) or digital products ( software, music, electronic documents) are being delivered. For example, delivery of physical products can take place via air, sea, or ground at varying costs and with different options. Delivering digital products is more straightforward, usually involving just downloading, although products are typically verifi ed with digital certifi cates. Fulfillment also varies depending on whether the company handles its own fulfi llment operations or outsources them to third parties. Fulfi llment often includes delivery address verifi ca-tion and digital warehousing, which maintains digital products on storage media until they’re delivered. Several third- party companies are available to handle fulfi llment functions for e- commerce sites.• Service and support— Service and support are even more important in e- commerce than in traditional commerce, given that e- commerce companies don’t

Utility companies, the beef and dairy industries, and medical prod-ucts are a few examples of vertical markets.

20Mobile Commerce Issues confronting m-commerce Working 24//7Mobile CommerceIssues confronting m-commerceUser-friendliness of the wireless deviceNetwork speedSecurityQuality of lifeMobile CommerceMobile commerce, or m-commerce, relies on the use of wireless devices, such as personal digital assistants, cell phones, and smart phones, to place orders and conduct business.The wireless application protocol (WAP) is a standard set of specifications for Internet applications that run on handheld, wireless devices. WAP is a key technology underlying m-commerce.Global E-Commerce and M-CommerceThe use of the Internet is growing rapidly in markets throughout Europe, Asia, and Latin America. As a result, many e-commerce sites are broadening their focus from primarily North American consumers to global consumers.The market for m-commerce in North America is expected to mature much later than in Western Europe and Japan, due to a number of reasons. In North America, responsibility for network infrastructure is fragmented among many providers; consumer payments are usually done by credit card; and most Americans are unfamiliar with mobile data services. In most Western European countries, communicating via wireless devices is common, and consumers are much more willing to use m-commerce. Japanese consumers are generally enthusiastic about new technology and are much more likely to use mobile technologies for making purchases.

It usually involves use of the Internet, other computer networks, and digitally stored value systems.

Clicking a banner ad displays a short marketing message or transfers the user to another Web site.• Click— The opportunity for a user to click a URL or a banner ad and be transferred to another Web• Cost per thousand ( CPM)— Most Web and e- mail advertising is priced based on the cost per thousand ( M stands for mille, which means thousand) ad impressions.• Cost per click ( CPC)— The cost of every click on an ad. For example, $ 1.25 CPC means that for every click an advertiser gets, the advertiser pays $ 1.25 to the sponsoring Web site.• Click- through rate ( CTR)— This rate is computed by dividing the number of clicks an ad gets by the total impressions bought.• Cookie— Information a Web site stores on the user’s hard drive so that it can be remembered for a later visit, such as greeting a visitor by name. This infor-mation is also used to record user preferences and browsing habits.• Hit— Every element of a Web page ( including text, graphics, and interactive items) is counted as a hit to a server. Hits aren’t the preferred unit of measure-ment for site traffi c, because the number of hits per page can vary widely, depending on the number of graphics, type of browser uses, and page size.• Meta tag— This HTML tag doesn’t affect how a Web page is displayed; it simply provides information about a Web page, such as keywords that represent the page content, the Web designer, and frequency of page updates. Search engines use this information, particularly keywords, to create indexes.
