In Pakistan, more than 11% have access to internet but there are no eBusiness activities as it should be. There is no eBay, Paypal or more. There are many reasons for it, firstly local community are not so use to with online shopping, secondly, there are no adequate IT policy to cover both buyer and the seller and finally local hackers and crackers love to crack into IT System. With all negative elements there are some positive elements too like a. the population of internet users b. online banking setup c. risk coverage by insurance companies for economical loss and IT initiative by Government to facilitate public as well as private sector.
There are companies like Telenor offering easy paisa to transfer fund from one user to another user using western union like business model, there are online banking to pay bills and finally there are some real examples like Libertybooks.com and ufone who have a good track record for online sales.
