Findings include possible decline in sales volume based on dis-intermediation principles, increase in cost of market offer, un-affordability of infrastructural bases for e-marketing among others. This work recommends the integration of the consumer cooperative society principles in the dis-intermediation system and enhancement of consumer education on e-marketing as well as the introduction of governmental policies that are capable of reducing the cost of business operations.
