The discovery of internet has come with revolution in different sphere of life including the way we communicate and relate with one another. One of the rapid expanding impacts of internet use has been e-commerce. E-commerce has created a chain of business to business operations leading to emergence of international internet retailers. Other than a mere storefront on the internet, international internet retailers need many resources. The need physical infrastructure from where they can coordinate their business operation reaching out to other business outlets in their distribution channel.
They need human resources which will handle their daily operation. Most of all they need a legislative framework which will deal with various issues arising from their operation especially on internet security matters. However unlike other physical business, e-commerce will require less physical facilities and human resource. In this case the international internet retailer can operate from one location and distribute their service to the whole though the satellite service or underground cables. In terms of physical infrastructure, the business is less demanding compared to others. International internet retailer will also require less human resource since and individual with only one computer can serve many customers online who would be served by more people physically (Internet retailer, 2008)
