A wide variety of commerce is conducted in this way, including things such as electronic funds transfer, supply chain management, e-marketing, online marketing, online transaction processing, electronic data interchange, automated inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems.

[...] We shall trace the growth, trends, and practice of e-commerce in France and discuss differential patterns among the developed countries of the world economy: the United States, Japan, and Western Europe (specifically, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden).
