The Internet is becoming a hotbed for businesses as e-commerce continues gaining momentum this year.
The e-commerce transaction volume in the country amounted to 3.3 trillion yuan ($496.2 billion) in the first three quarters, compared with 3.6 trillion yuan ($541.4 billion) for the entire year of 2009, said a recent report by the Shanghai-based iResearch Consulting Group.
B2B remains the most vibrant activity, accounting for 88.5 percent of the e-commerce market.
Meanwhile, online shopping is also bursting with vitality as Chinese consumers search for bargains on everything from cosmetics to clothes.
