1.1 Background
The word Dabbawalla translates to dabba = lunch box, and walla = man or the 'lunch box man'. It is a 125 year old trade formed by a unique and incredible network of 5,000 men with the complex task of delivering 200,000 home made lunches each day from suburban homes to downtown offices in the city all within a period of approximately 3 hours! That's about 65 million 'dabbas' a year with almost no mistakes! Dabbawallas are largely illiterate rural workers who use nothing more than 3 - 4 symbols crudely painted on their dabbas to create an unparalleled food supply chain by using their remarkable intuition, teamwork and values in contrast to the very sophisticated computerized decision making telecommunication systems costing million of dollars in the West today.

1.2 Introduction
Nepali dabbawala is a totally new idea for Nepali culture because generaaly we, Nepali people dont prefer carrying our lunch boxes to offices. This system of dabbawala is a little different from the Mumbai dabbawala. The customers of Nepal can order their lunch online. The customers just need to register themselves on the website The registration is completely free of cost.The menu will be available and they can order according to their preferences with just a click of their mouse. It helps customers to save time. It is easily available to everyone at every corner. We have opened our organization with the goal by providing maximum service through interactive way.

Research on various E businesses
While going through this project we searched for various ebusiness which are similar to our business and how are they operating and whether they have become successful to operate and what are their drawbacks so that we can overcome with that. For this purpose we have gone through various websites.
Greenfield .com is one of the website which helps to search for various books. While going through the site it was found that various books as per the author name can be found and as per the related subjects i.e. Agriculture, animals, business, cinema, dance etc. This makes the user easier to have choices in specific field.
Though serves various ranges of product but it gave us the idea of making our webpage and how to is not only used to serve books regarding services but it also serves from various basic needs to gadgets, clothes etc. One of the good things that made user friendly is that we can rate and give them feedback regarding products and their services and it also advertise the similar product which it feels the customer may want.

Chapter 3
SWOT analysis is a strategic planning method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats involved in a project or in a business venture. It involves

specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieve that objective. SWOT analysis is a tool for auditing an organization and its environment. It is the first stage of planning and helps peoples to focus on key issues. 1. Strengths Attributes of the person or company that is helpful to achieving the objectives. A firm's strengths are its resources and capabilities that can be used as a basis for developing a competitive advantage. Our strength is In Nepal there are few online bookstores so we can be one of them to serve the customers As many colleges has been recommending students to use foreign writers book but they are not commonly available in the market so Basically we are concerned with having a contact with foreign writers so that these books can be served. We being a MBAe graduate student we have artistic and skilled members so that our idea can be innovative to sustain the change Helping the customers to avoid with traditional system by cutting down their travelling cost and time Big strength is that payment can be done staying on your desk

2. Weaknesses Attributes of the person or company those are harmful to achieving the objectives The absence of certain strengths may be viewed as a weakness Being a new beginner it may be difficult to co operate with the surviving ones Existing ones may be more experienced and has been occupying the market Customers may not take us trustworthy in the starting phase

3. Opportunities External conditions those are helpful to achieve the objectives. The external environmental analysis may reveal certain new opportunities for profit and growth. No much competition so it is new to be experienced For the customers who are busy and lack of time management we are the ones to make them easy Good integration among the employees and fresh employees with innovative idea can make our business be different from others 4. Threats External conditions which could do damage to the objectives Changes in the external environmental also may present threats to the firm People want to do something by their own skills and everyone are coming with their own business so there is fear of new entrants People may not assign as they dont believe there will be secrecy and safety Have to implement latest technology in order to survive Project may not raise our revenue as per our expectation

STRENGTHS Unique idea, no much competition Strong artistic and skilled team Excellent animation abilities Experienced and innovative company officers

WEAKNESSES most site users seek to remain anonymous Few advertisers interested in this strangely targeted market Single stream of revenue is advertising THREATS Rise of potential entrants Security and safety Latest technology

OPPORTUNITIES Lack of immense competition Ecommerce knowledge New way to attract customers Easy integration

3.1 Strategy for the long run

In order to survive in the long run we must analyze various aspects. Looking at the SWOT Analysis we have to know that change is must we have to change and be more innovative as per time. New entrants are rising and customer have multiple of choice to switch from one company to another and we also know that it costs six times more to sell new customers than to sell the existing ones and the typical dissatisfied customers will tell eight to ten people about his experience so customer satisfaction and their feedback is must.

Chapter 4
Business Methodology
Methodology is the set of method and principle that are used when studying particular subjects or doing particular kind of work. Here, it refers to the method and step which is followed by customers and suppliers and also showing how the payment workflow activities is done.

4.1 Customers end

Customers are the king of our market. Whenever operating any business the first thing is to concern about their tastes and preferences. As we know within a click of the mouse they switch the business so we are trying to make a flexible website and full fledged service to our customers. The work flow of how our business works can be interpreted with the help of these following steps: Customer log in to our website, if he is an existing user then he is facilitated by service directly if not then he must be part of kitab.coms service by simply login. After log in he can search as per his needs. He identifies and orders the required need. After he makes his order try to see the availability of the product and as per the inventory and availability of the product mail him back saying to make a payment. Payment form can be filled and submit so after the payment is done deliver the product. Feedback is must.

4.2 Suppliers end

Suppliers are the ones from whom we can operate our business. is basically a business operated for the target customers may be for individual purpose or for business use. We have come to an idea for providing various ranges of product to our customers for this purpose we have to maintain our inventory system. For this purpose we follow the following things: Search for the suppliers as per the customer needs and assign with the magazine publisher so that on the published date can serve customers. Maintaining a good relationship with the company so that can purchase in bulk and serve in bulk. Keeping in inventory for back up but as dont keep in bulk so it deals directly with the dealers promptly when the order comes. Help writers by advertising various upcoming product details on Kitab.coms website. Charging certain commission. After delivery to the customers we pay to the dealers

4.3 Payment gateway workflow has its account on various banks. These banks have been chosen from a survey these banks are mostly used by various peoples. Standard chartered bank, Nepal merchant bank, Investment bank, Siddhartha bank are used for serving purpose

Customer after gets the availability if their product mail they go for the payment procedure They click on payment Bank makes their process and sends e mail to and the procedure form Selects the bank After clicking on their bank a new page is opened to fill their information They fill it and submit Bank checks the account number and their balance whether they have the minimum balance with payment amount or not. customers about the payment has been done

B2C TRANSACTION Business model can be categorized on various ways. Our business is mainly concerned with B2C transaction. Business-to-consumer (B2C, sometimes also called Business-to-Customer) describes activities of businesses serving end consumers with products and/or services. An example of a B2C transaction would be a person buying a pair of shoes from a retailer. The transactions that led to the shoes being available for purchase, that is the purchase of the leather, laces, rubber, etc. as well as the sale of the shoe from the shoemaker to the retailer would be considered (B2C) transactions. Likewise sells books directly to the consumers in the net. We try to make available all the resources as per our customers need.

6.4 Web Content

Web content includes the detail information regarding the website. It should be clear to all the customers regarding the objective of our business, they should not get confused, they should be able to access to the links easily, website should be interactive and it should not contain unnecessary and unwanted messages. The most important thing is it should contain functionality for performing commercial transactions over the web. The site should be simple and understandable so that customers would find it easy to grab the knowledge. Besides, it should be easy to operate. People having little knowledge about the internet could easily access it. An online store is a virtual store on the Internet where customers can browse the catalog and select products of interest. The selected items may be collected in a shopping cart. At checkout time, the items in the shopping cart will be presented as an order. At that time, more information will be needed to complete the transaction. Usually, the customer will be asked to fill or select a billing address, a shipping address, a shipping option, and payment information such as credit card number. An e- mail notification is sent to the customer as soon as the order is placed.

A good e-commerce site should present the following factors to the customers for better usability: Knowing when an item was saved or not saved in the shopping cart. Returning to different parts of the site after adding an item to the shopping cart. Easy scanning and selecting items in a list. Effective categorical organization of products. Simple navigation from home page to information and order links for specific products. Obvious shopping links or buttons. Minimal and effective security notifications or messages. Consistent layout of product information. The website should contain the following points in detail: 1. Home page 2. About us 3. Contact us 4. Books 5. Shopping cart 6. Feedback 7. Advertisements 8. Related links 1. Home page The home page is the first impression page to the customers. It should contain all the related areas for customers and business. It should contain the logo, search box, user login, change password, shopping cart , add book, book details, book review, books, check out, final order, forgot password, logoff, menu, order, purchase history, registration, user details, etc. It should contain the short description regarding the services provided. The homepage should be interactive. 2. About us Brief introduction of the company Service provided by the company List of founders 3. Contact us Location of the company Contact numbers Email address Branches

4. Books


The information about books is stored in here. The user can know the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book, book title, author of the book, number of copies available at the store, price of the book. It should also contain a link to add the book to the shopping cart. Books can be searched based on the ISBN, Title or the Author of the book. 5. Shopping cart The objective of this application is to provide the user an online website where they can buy books from the comfort of their home. A shopping cart is used for the purpose. The user can select the desired books, place them in the shopping cart and purchase them via the website. The users order will be shipped according to the type of shipping selected at the time of placing the order. When Add to Cart is clicked for any book, it is added to the shopping cart. If any particular book is already present in the shopping cart, the quantity is increased by 1 and the price is changed accordingly; if not, a new entry is made.

6. Feedback Another important factor in the design of an e-commerce site is feedback .The interactive cycle between a user and a web site is not complete until the web site responds to a command entered by the user. Feedback is the sending back the comments to the user information about what action has actually been done and what result has been accomplished. Imagine trying to talk to someone when you cannot even hear your own voice, or trying to draw a picture with a pencil that leaves no mark: there would be no feedback. Web site feedback often consists of a change in the visual or verbal information presented to the user. Also, feedback should not distract the user. Actions and reactions made by the web site should be meaningful. Feedback should not draw the user's attention away from the important tasks of gathering information, selecting products, and placing orders.

Chapter 9 Back up and disaster recovery plan


What if fire attacks your place??? What if virus attack makes your computer losses all the data??? What if you would lose your HR records, accounting, legal history, intellectual property, email files or were unable to operate your management system or ecommerce web systems???

There are various what if questions if one dont have any back up plan. Backup plan are the most important thing that one should think about while running business. For this purpose we should think about various aspects We cannot do much thing about fire besides keeping a fire alarm which makes us aware about the fire. Virus is code segment that replicates by attaching copies of it to existing executables. (EXE files). The new copy of the virus is executed when a user executes the host program. So in order to be safe from virus various antivirus software should be used i.e. McAfee, Norton, AVG etc. If we are unable to operate the records from one system. Our activities would be stopped as we lack the required data so for this purpose we have tried to maintain data recovery and data center in 2 different locations.



From the above figure we can see that we have made our data recovery and data center in 2 different places so that we can be safe and if one is destroyed by theft or natural calamities then another center is used for back up.

Firewall A firewall is a barrier to keep destructive forces away from your property. In fact thats why its called firewall. Its job is similar to a physical firewall that keeps a fire from spreading from one area to the next. A firewall is simply a program or hardware device that filters the

information coming through the internet connection into our private networks or computer system. If an incoming packet of information is flagged by the filters it is not allowed through. We have plan to use the following firewall as it meets our requirements and is within our budget. Brand name: NETGEAR Model no: FVS318 Throughput: 12.5 Mbps LAN to Wan throughput 1.2 Mbps 3DES throughput Size: 10*7.1*1.4(inches) Weight: around 1 kg. Other features: Administration Interface: Intuitive browser-based interface, user name and password protected. Smart Wizard installs assistant and VPN wizard for basic parameter settings. Secure HTTPS Remote Management Support: Authenticated through IP address or IP address range, and password. Dynamic DNS Configuration and upgrades: Upload and download configuration settings, field upgradeable flash memory.

Chapter 10
Conclusion Limitations and Future Development

10.1 Limitations
There are some limitations for the current system to which solutions can be provided as a future development: The system is not configured for multi- users at this time. The concept of transaction can be used to achieve this. The Website is not accessible to everyone. It can be deployed on a web server so that everybody who is connected to the Internet can use it. Credit Card validation is not done as we dont have the accessibility of credit card but in future we hope our transaction would be carried out via credit card.

10.2 Future development

As for other future developments, the following can be done: 1. The Administrator of the web site can be given more functionality, like looking at a specific customers profile, the books that have to be reordered, etc. 2. Multiple Shopping carts can be allowed

10.3 Conclusion
The Internet has become a major resource in modern business, thus electronic shopping has gained significance not only from the entrepreneurs but also from the customers point of view. For the entrepreneur, electronic shopping generates new business opportunities and for the customer, it makes comparative shopping possible. As per a survey, most consumers of online stores are impulsive and usually make a decision to stay on a site within the first few seconds. Website design is like a shop interior. If the shop looks poor or like hundreds of other shops the customer is most likely to skip to the other site. Hence we have designed the project to provide the user with easy navigation, retrieval of data and necessary feedback as much as possible. In this project, the user is provided with an e-commerce web site that can be used to buy books online. A good shopping cart design must be accompanied with user-friendly shopping cart application logic. It should be convenient for the customer to view the contents of their cart and to be able to remove or add items to their cart. We have made our website customer friendly so that they would not be confused in shopping and searching their required needs. This project helps in understanding the creation of an interactive web page and the technologies used to implement it.
