Abstract: Generally speaking, e-commerce concerns the sale and purchase of goods and services by electronic mechanisms in general and on the Internet in particular. This chapter provides an overview of e-commerce with a focus on consumer-oriented applications. A number of consumer-oriented e-commerce models with real-life examples are presented to illustrate how e-commerce can be used to buy and sell different types of goods or services. The enabling technologies or technical building blocks for consumer-oriented e-commerce systems also are described. Finally, two ongoing developments in consumer-oriented e-commerce are discussed. It is expected that the current consumer-oriented e-commerce system will evolve to a ubiquitous system with many more intelligent functions through the use of mobile computing and software agent technologies.
