Towards the trend of modern technology growing rapidly, it has been intergrated with trade in goods and services through electronic platform, which it is called “e-commerce”. This could be considered as new highly effective and essential business model since the development of e-commerce is expected to reduce the costs and barriers for small and medium businesses, including micro-enterprises, as to market access and distribution.
