Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SME) play a significant part in economies throughout the world. In the early developmental stages of e-commerce/e-business many believed that it would enable these SMEs to compete head-to-head with large companies. While much has been done to examine the adoption of e-commerce/e-business, few have addressed the benefit that it is providing these businesses. This study identifies the types of e-commerce that SMEs are using and examines the benefits that are received from this use.
