The management of electronic retail channels is not limited to virtual companies only. Also store-based (stationary) retailers are expected to set up electronic distribution channels. This paper discusses the occurrence of such channels from a European perspective. The authors introduce a Web-scan framework to analyze the nature of Web offerings and thelogistical elements of e-tailing. The application of this structure showed that store-based retailers have already invested in Web-based activities, mainly for information and/or communication issues. The set-up of strong electronic channels of distribution is still in an early phase.
