A few days ago, I wrote about the different types of internet businesses that one can put up.
That article prompted a lot of inquiries from my readers which sent to my inbox a number of requests for assistance on several aspects of e-commerce and other online ventures.
Some of the questions I received such as “How do I put up a website?” and “How does Paypal work?” were quite easy to answer, but there were also some that really got me thinking.
There were concerns about online business legalities, issues on consumer rights and protection for e-commerce transactions and a few on internet copyright laws.
These questions encouraged me to do some research which led me to discover this nifty handbook from Janette Toral entitled E-Commerce For Entrepreneurs.
The original workshop book came out in 2004 but she’s now updating it to include new and more comprehensive information. By February 2009, she will be releasing the new edition of E-Commerce For Entrepreneurs and she just announced the first volume of the series entitled Internet User’s Guide to E-Commerce Policies.
