The most common implementation of e-Business is as an additional, or in some cases primary, storefront. This function of e-business is referred to as e-Commerce, and the terms are occasionally used interchangeably.
By selling products and services online, businesses are able to reach potential customers worldwide, thus enjoying a much wider consumer base than any traditional brick-and-mortar store could ever hope for.
An e-Business may also use the Internet to acquire wholesale products or supplies for in-house production, which can cut their costs dramatically. Even businesses without an electronic storefront now use the Internet as a way to better track and manage their purchasing.
