e-business

(Electronic-BUSINESS) Doing business online. The term is often used synonymously with e-commerce, but e-business is more of an umbrella term for having a presence on the Web. An e-business site may be very comprehensive and offer more than just selling products and services. For example, it may feature a general search facility for related information or host discussions about the subject. In such cases, e-commerce would refer to the order processing component of the site. See e-commerce.
