Many of the people did not use E-marketing because they did not understand the whole idea. They had heard of the word but did not really understand its real meaning and this was a major reason as to why they did not use it.

They will be aware of the way it saves time and how safe it is since it does not involve carrying cash. With experienced internet users are more likely to have confidence in the security of e-commerce websites and the safety of giving their credit card information to an e-commerce website as compared to inexperienced users (Lee, 2003).
