However, SMEs especially in developing countries have not fully adopted e-Commerce solutions.

A questionnaire based on the factors identified has been developed and face-to-face interviews were conducted with 15 SME Managers which were inclusive of survey sample of 61 Ghanaian SMEs. This paper shows that SMEs online sales is virtually nil, the most common e-Commerce application is the use of e-mail for communication and the main reason for having a website is to show basic information about product and services as well as contact information.
