Chapter 21. Putting It All Together > Federated Commerce System

Federated Commerce System

We envision many individual Internet commerce systems as being members of a global federated commerce system, as shown in Figure 21-1. In the federated commerce system, customers may join one or more buyer communities and conduct commerce with any number of sellers. Buyers get the advantages of a single account to remember and unified customer service. Sellers gain the advantages of standardization, ease of use, access to a large aggregation of customers, and easy access to network-based value-added services. In this example, we will abbreviate the generic federated commerce system as FCS.
