High competitiveness and the growing popularity of e-Trading demand that the e-Commerce transactions are executed in a minimal time and cost. This paper proposes a new framework to enhance the inter-agent communication in e-Commerce transactions using the conventional mobile agents. This method performs the transactions at an e-Marketplace associated with a router, thus reducing the execution time and cost. The paper also proposes a strategy to group the agents into e-Marketplaces to improve the scalability of the solution.
