  •  Irenée Tiako Ngatcheu    


E-commerce is globalizing. It is no possible to a country to emerge without it. That is why the vast majority of the world's countries adopt it. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the factors that impact e-readiness and e-commerce security. To achieve this objective, data have been collected on a sample of 40 cameroonian companies based in Douala and Yaoundé. The number of companies by business sector respects the proportions from the census conducted by the National Institute of Statistics (NIS) in 2016. The collected data are then analyzed using statistical software such as STATA to highlight the weight of each dimension. As results, E-readiness depends on legal factors, economic factors and technological factors.

So, E-readiness is based on three pillars: legal, economic and technological. None of the three is to be overlooked in the development of e-commerce.
