Few companies in that country have enabled business sites, but most of them are keen to present product information on their sites rather than have an online sales process. According to the latest report was issued in 2010 from the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) in Saudi Arabia, there are only 8% of businesses have online purchase channel; in contrast 54% of companies have websites only to present products. Accordingly, new research has been conducted to explore the attraction of customers in Saudi Arabia to buy from businesses online.
