The source of revenues is the sale of goods. Strong entry barriers make success very difficult: establishing a successful e-tailer requires building a strong brand and targeting a precise customer that may enable the e-tailer to target the offer to specific needs. Other elements that need careful management are expenses and inventory: they should be kept low to reduce the need for capital.
