Web-Based Shopping Systems (WBSS), Taxonomy, Dynamic Planning.


This paper attempts to provide a conceptual taxonomy and a dynamic planning of Web-Based Shopping Systems (WBSS). A model of four types of Web-based shopping systems is suggested: (1) general direct-sales; (2) general intermediary-sales; (3) specialized direct-sales and (4) specialized intermediary-sales. On the basis of this model, we suggest a WBSS dynamic plan which has implications in both theory and practice. We hope that this research will serve as a catalyst for triggering a new research agenda relevant to WBSS and electronic commerce.
