SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)-based E-commerce (Electronic Commerce) is the deployment of E-commerce using SaaS solutions or e-commerce sites subscribed as Web-based/ web service. It provides an online environment for all transactions.

This service links with the customer system environment to handle e-mail or fax for business orders. It eliminates the complexities involved in handling orders and quickly conducts transactions with a large numbers of customers.
The increasing popularity of the SaaS-based applications accounts for the growth of E-commerce, as the E-commerce software is maintained by a service provider itself.

Moreover, the businesses can easily meet the fluctuating demands of business transactions through this model. Additionally, the SaaS-based E-commerce service provider gives customers a network-based access to E-commerce applications; created specifically for SaaS distribution. Thus, it eliminates the need for time consuming patches and updates in the E-commerce software.

However, the trend is changing with a majority of companies (irrespective of their size) finding a number of opportunities through SaaS deployments.
The timely reporting and resolution of customer issues, resulting in enhanced customer service, is driving the SaaS-based E-commerce application market. Further, the addition of vertical specific requirements in the SaaS-based E-commerce is leading to the growth of these services.
