Barriers to the growth of E Commerce in India

Limited Internet access among customers and SMEs (current level of internet usage is low among businesses and users) Poor telecom and infrastructure for reliable connectivity (Internet connectivity slow, access costs are high and connections are unreliable)

How can we make a Successful E Commerce Transaction?

To make a successful e-commerce transaction both the payment and delivery services must be made efficient. There has been a rise in the number of companies' taking up e-commerce in the recent past. Major Indian portal sites have also shifted towards ecommerce instead of depending on advertising revenue. Many sites are now selling a diverse range of products and services from flowers, greeting cards, and movie tickets to groceries, electronic gadgets, and computers.

On the negative side there are many challenges faced

by e-commerce sites in India. The relatively small credit card population and lack of uniform credit agencies create a variety of payment challenges unknown in the United States and Western Europe.
