E-retailing, most commonly known as e-tailing is nothing but shoppingthrough the Internet and other media forms. There are many things thatare common between direct retail stores and online retail stores. Bothhave the process of billing of the customers and have to maintain arelationship with the suppliers

The four challenges of E Retailing
Every on-line fulfillment operation, large or small, faces four mainchallenges:
Controlling customer data
As outsourcing arrangements proliferate and delivery services becomemore expert in using information technology, retailers risk losing their lock on consumer data. This knowledge, ranging from the socioeconomicstatus of customers to their buying patterns and preferences, helpsintermediaries and shippers reduce costs, but they can also use it tocompete with retailers.
Integrating on- and off-line orders
From an operations perspective, the easiest route for companies with afoot in both the real and the virtual worlds might be to enter electronicorders manually into the off-line order management system. This optionmakes most sense when the volume of on-line orders is higher;companies must decide how much integration they need. In a totallyintegrated system, Internet orders would be automatically transmittedthrough a processing center and transferred to the shippers manifest.Savings up to 30 percent are possible if the cost of long-distancetelephone calls, data entry, timeserver operations, and error correction isreduced or eliminated and the cycle time between order and delivery iscut significantly. An integrated system with full ERP (enterprise resource planning) capabilities, for e g, can ensure that surges in demand don’tretard key fulfillment operations such as data entry, inventory, and packing.
Delivering the goods cost-effectively
At present, every single transaction challenges e-tailors to deliver thegoods quickly, cheaply and conveniently. The existing model for homedelivery works well for letters and flat packages but not for e-tailing highvolumes and wide variety of package shapes and sizes. But this is largelya technical and logistical problem, and it will be possible (though perhapsexpensive) to solve it by developing new sorting and scanning equipmentand by deploying larger delivery vehicles.
