Ecommerce is fast gaining ground as an accepted and used business paradigm. More and more business houses are implementing web sites providing functionality for performing commercial transactions over the web. It is reasonable to say that the process of shopping on the web is becoming common place. It is the buying and selling of goods and services, or the transmitting of funds or data, over an electronic network, primarily the internet. These business transactions occur either as business-to-business, business-to-consumer, consumer-to-consumer or consumer-to-business. The terms e-commerce and e-business are often used interchangeably. The main objective of this project is to help farmers ensure greater profitability through direct farmer to farmer, farmer to customer & farmer to dealer communication. Our project deals with respect to the farmers benefit of getting their products sale at a best price online. Here, the main users of this website are farmer, customer and admin. Farmers will get unique interface where they can perform marketing, get the correct rates of the market and gather knowledge of different schemes and get pay online. It will provide market wise, commodity wise report to the farmer in interactive way. The centralized market committee will control all business activities. Agricultural E-commerce enables good trading possibilities by supporting different business models such as multi-suppliers, e-sales and several types of auctions. It can blur the physical existence of agro-allied stores, the integrity of products is ensured no paper money involved in the process, distance doesn’t exist and so on. Today E-commerce lacks fully automated business processes and still requires a significant manual effort by users. So our project tries to solve all lacking of E-commerce business process
II. LITERATURE SURVEY
Currently available websites which are based on Agriculture has modules only for showing the product and some information about the products required for farming and other few websites provide few information related to agriculture but the farmers are not given complete information which is required for him like product information with price and location to purches, for this he has to visit multiple sites but still we cannot assure that he will get information which he was searching for. Since many farmers are not aware of new technologies which are introduced in the field of agriculture they are following the old and traditional way of doing agriculture. It results in low yields and requires much effort because of this many youngsters are choosing different fields as their career. E-commerce is clearly beginning to have a major impact in the agricultural sector. The way people go about purchasing agricultural products is of great concern. Most of the time customers have to travel far distances to get agricultural products and getting the right quality is not ensured. Besides, farming is the prime occupation in Bangladesh. Bangladeshi people involved in farming are mostly cheated by the agents in today’s market which leads to poverty. Our project aims to help farmers as well as customers for buying and selling agricultural products across the country using a computerized approach.
The website will guide the farmers to access new farming techniques, compare current market rate of different products, the total sale and the earned profit for the sold products. The website builds a platform for farmers and agents to ensure greater profitability through direct farmer to farmer, farmer to agent and farmer to customer communication. The website will act as aunique and secure way to perform agro-marketing. E-farming will serve as a way for the farmers to sell their products across the country just with some basic knowledge about how to use the website.This project allows viewing various products available enables users to purchase desire products instantly by online payment. This website would be developed using web serviceas the communication infrastructure between the buyer and farmers and also products selling.
