Using internet to operate business has become very important for traditional manufacturing enterprises and retailers. These enterprises are facing great risk when entering e-commerce due to lack of experiences and large volume of initial IT investment. This study analyzed the Commerce as a Service (CaaS) solution which can perfectly solve these problems. The solution is based on leading e-commerce platform and cloud computing technology, which provides small to medium sized clients with a low cost alternative e-commerce. Clients will be relieved of the responsibility of managing an IT shop while still maintaining full control over their site through business user tools.
