Abstract

E-retailing provides a relatively new way of marketing, selling, paying and the delivery
of goods over the Internet. A guideline suggested here to be followed to mitigate risks of
running a web store consist of five stages; i) identifying risk factor and risk type,
ii) analyzing risk scenario, iii) predicting the consequences of risk occurring,
iv) planning for proper risk mitigation mechanism and v) assigning the right people to
manage the risk. Results from this study also indicated that risks faced by click-andmortar
and pure play e-tailers are similar in terms of customer and internet risks but very
different in terms of business risks since click-and-mortar e-tailers usually have a higher
budget at their disposal to spend in handling online business risks. In conclusion,
businesses that conduct their transactions online will have to be ready to face problems
that may not arise in running conventional stores. These risks, if left without proper
handling, might lead to the downfall of e-tailers.
