Statement of the problem
Currently, the whole world has been on a streak to ensuring the proper utilisation of e-commerce tools in a bid to come up with better, efficient and effective way to process payments. As a matter of interest, rural businesses have not been following up this and in the long run, these businesses will have to adapt to the ever changing commercial technology so that the firms will also seem relevant in the industry. The ineffective and inadequate commercial technology has made for the consumers to lose confidence in them, and their inability to perform their work with perfection and has in turn led to considerable loses. In this era, most firms are not a going concern due to the fact that they do not embrace e-commerce as a way to boost their firm’s competitive capabilities in the industry, but instead they rely more on traditional ways of operating business which in this case is absurd if they want to sustain the firm’s operations.
