A general introduction to e-commerce and you'll hear some of the most common historical comparisons.

Managing the Digital Enterprise - A graduate level management course taught at North Carolina State University by Professor Michael Rappa. The site, which was launched in January 1999, is one of the first of its kind to use the web itself as the foundation for an introductory course in e-commerce. The course does not use a textbook in the traditional meaning of the word. Instead, the web is used as the source of the latest and most pertinent information to teach the principles of e-commerce. Each week thousands of individuals worldwide use the site to learn about e-commerce as the entire curriculum is available online and is open to the general public.

Networking Infrastructure for E-Commerce
- A large component of today's e-commerce driven economy is the networking infrastructure that supports the EC transactions. What is meant by a networked computing infrastructure? This course, freely available and viewable over the web, provides a working knowledge of the capabilities and limitations of the infrastructure underlying networked computing. Nice powerpoint slides are provided, and are posted to the site as the course moves forward.

Electronic Commerce Tutorial by IBM - The objective of this tutorial is to provide an overview of how electronic commerce works, the challenges of hosting complex electronic commerce environments, and the importance of electronic commerce capabilities that enhance the services and core competencies of the service provider.

Electronic Commerce Tutorial from CNET - If you've already got a store, why not take the next step and offer your merchandise online? After the initial investment, keeping a virtual storefront open 24/7 costs a fraction of what it does to run its real-world counterpart. With ambition, a practical plan, and the right e-commerce software, your Internet cash cow can be good to go in a minimal timeframe.

Tutorial on E-commerce: What/Why/Where/How - Victor Hui, an alumni of the City University of Hong Kong and a Consultant of Sibel Incorporation, shares his in-depth eCommerce knowledge in these areas: definition, importance, consideration factors, businesses framework/model, related technologies and successful applications. This presentation is both non-technical and somewhat technical in scope.

E-Commerce Tutorial in 5 Lessons - This tutorial will show you how to generate a realistic e-business plan; create a site design that caters to your online customers; deal with things like credit cards, tax, shipping, and security; and decide whether you should build, buy, or rent an e-commerce solution to manage your site's transactions. You'll also learn how to attract new customers by refining your marketing programs.

Electronic Commerce Cookbook Part I: The Planning Stage - This online tutorial covers skill sets for what you need to know to be successful; provides some handy references; and gives you a general plan of action for design, development and deployment. Then it dives into core issues related to designing an e-commerce platform, which is developing the blue print for what you hope to build. It wraps up by walking through a design for a large-scale e-commerce platform. Also check out Microsoft's E-Commerce White Paper Series providing general, non-technical guidance addressing key issues in business-to-consumer solutions, as well as detailed technical information for developers and technical staff.

Tutorial: 'Secure Electronic Commerce' - This is an excellent online tutorial from IBM covering these topics: Cryptography, Secure end-to-end Transport, Public-Key Infrastructure, Notary Services, Payment Systems, Secure Transfer of Digital Originals, Frameworks for Secure Electronic Commerce, and Secure Devices.

Electronic Commerce Review - This course is subtitled 'Getting on the road to electronic commerce to compete in the Information Age' and consists of 78 well done slides making up a 1/2 day course on the business end of ecommerce.

Paying via PayPal ( is more of a hassle for non-PayPal users, since they're not only paying for your product but also have to sign up for PayPal. I am guessing that this could retard sales some. You can test to see if that is the problem by using DigiBuy (, ClickBank (, or Kagi ( to sell software; or CCNow ( or OrderButton ( to sell hard goods. All allow you to accept credit cards without the expenses of a merchant account. While each of these costs substantially more than PayPal's low 2.9% rate, they allow you to test to determine if your lack of sales is due to PayPal sign-up reluctance.
