After reporting current research about the extent of e-commerce adoption by small Australian businesses, this study documents the progress and outcomes of four small regional organisations as they seek the opportunities promised by e-commerce. Each of the four cases presents a different focus and mix of web-based applications. The common factor which contributes to their success is that the adoption of e-commerce was driven by sound business objectives.
