Generally, the respondents showed positive perspective of the lnternet as a retail medium in Malaysia. The Computer and IT sector is the biggest user of the lnternet in Malaysia, but the usage is still at the early stage. The preferred criterion for lnternet evaluation and approval into business is the capability of the lnternet to support business activities.

The most common lnternet application used among retailers is the use of electronic mail. lnternet is expected to enhance the sources of knowledge.
