Offshore e-commerce and e-business inevitably imply transactions with other parties, whether these be customers, clients, partners, suppliers, employees or prospects. There is nothing about an offshore location as such which makes for differences in the array of systems and software tools needed to communicate with them, other than the fact that an offshore operation is obviously in a different place; but if the functions involved in communicating are going to be performed offshore, then questions of capacity, security, maintenance and management arise (see last item).

The systems elements needed may include:

  • Customisable front-end 'offer' pages
  • On-line catalogues
  • Sales process components including shopping basket, order form, registration form, multi-currency converter, tax calculator
  • 'Exchange' or 'auction' management software
  • Links to remote payment processing facilities
  • Communication with a customer or contact database
  • Reporting of customer behaviour
  • Links to accounting and credit management systems


In most jurisdictions, offshore e-commerce is not yet established on a substantial scale, and it will not be possible to source such system components locally. In some of the leading jurisdictions there are firms, or combinations of firms, offering off-the-shelf turnkey solutions for some of the more basic commercial activities, but these are likely to be re-branded solutions bought in from major systems suppliers.
