This book is designed for people who want to understand e-commerce – and by “understanding”, we mean first and foremost Why and What, not How. Why is Amazon dominating the market? What happened between 1995 and 2015? Why were the incumbents like Walmart not able to fight back? What will become of the herd of new unicorn e-commerce companies? And what will happen to the traditional value chain on which retail companies operate? This is not a book about How, though, so don’t read this hoping to learn “how to master online marketing”. From our point of view, the Why and What is much more challenging and important, whether you are running a company in this market or are a student wanting to break into it. In this book, we’ll share what we’ve learned. Look forward to more than 450 pages of valuable material about changes in the value chain, a lively review of how e-commerce has developed over the last 20 years, 50 case studies of digital business models large and small, three extensive interviews with leading e-commerce entrepreneurs, and strategic mind-games galore for a range of industries. The Story so far: Join us in revisiting the last 20 years of e-commerce. Look into the ups but also the downs of various business archetypes. Also, find a detailed analysis of recent market developments and major players in China. Basic Concepts: Learn about the interaction of all building blocks along the e-commerce value chain. You will understand how to make your customer happy in terms of demand based procurement, distribution, customer service, and much more… Case Studies: Get insights into 50 renowned online players around the globe. Each profile covers a detailed business model assessment and market positioning. The authors give a brief outlook on challenges and opportunities for each of the companies portrayed. Strategic Aspects: Find answers to major strategic questions: How to prosper in a "GAFA" dominated economy? Should I resist the temptation to sell via Amazon? Are banking and insurance the next industries to be radically transformed? …and what is taking so long in the home furnishings sector? Interviews: Tap into the knowledge of successful serial entrepreneurs and get inspired by the latest insights of Stephan Schambach, René Köhler, and Florian Heinemann. Benchmarking: Learn how to benchmark your own e-commerce activities and take a closer look on aspects such as platform, business intelligence, online marketing, and CRM. Sold over 3.000 times in Germany. Voted the best book about E-Commerce!

Perfect introduction to eCommerce

 on October 4, 2016
By Sandra B.
This book is well-written and gives a clear introduction into eCommerce business. It starts with the history of online business and gives an outlook over the industry as a whole. This part was probably the most entertaining for me to read. Well done, just the right amount of depth here. Part 2 is about hands-on eCommerce and gives a helpful overview & analysis. Not that detailed, I guess each topic here deserves its own book. Part 3 showcases 50 of today’s most interesting online retailers, giving the book a nice balance between strategy and real world examples. Good to see some European and Chinese businesses here, which we otherwise never really hear about in the US. The final part is about different strategies, I enjoyed the author’s refreshing view of the amazon economy, don’t miss this part! In summary: Great for both those working in e-commerce an those wanting to learn more about the industry in general.

Best industry overview out there

First book I read that is completely e-commerce focused and gives a good market overview. It’s great to read all the how-to books, but they don’t tell you what a longterm oriented strategy in e-commerce should look like. This book does exactly that – how has e-commerce developed and where is it going, who are the players, how do they grow, which business models make sense, which ones will disappear and why. The authors challenge some common beliefs in a straight and analytical way. I may not agree with all of their sometimes grimm assessments, but I appreciate the honest view and expert opinion. Excellent book to make sense of Amazon’s domination, failures like Fab and struggles of the offline world.

Great read!

This book is a excellent walk through of the rapidly evolving E-Commerce industry. Graf, Schneider and their team help breakdown a complex industry through interesting examples, and relevant case studies. An absolute must read for any E-Commerce professional to learn about the past, present and potential future shifts of “Commerce.”

The book is a very good assembly about past

The book is a very good assembly about past, current and future ecommerce trends. The given use cases give a very good insight into different business models. Starting with structure of eccomerce, the book gives a good introduction into the different part of an ecommerce business. It shows for example clearly, that purchasing changed from push to pull and that purchasing need to use “marketing tools” like google trends to adapt to use needs. I used the book for teaching in some lectures about ecommerce.
