How does trade policy negatively affect e-commerce?
The problem with trade policy is the uncertainty of customs duties and that sellers are unable to collect enough information about consumers and at the same time consumers have a doubt about the direction of the end cost of the product
The system is constantly falling and the quality of the internet is poor
it affects when there are several of different trad policy between the countries so the seller couldn’t recognize all policies at the end it be negative
Trade policies affect the ecommerce as some policies require a certain quality standard for some products to be imported and others apply very high taxes and customs which leads to preference of domestic products as they have cheaper prices even if it does not deliver the exact same value
Some countries in the World Trade Organization initially opposed WTO’s decision to exempt electronic delivery of products from customs duties, out of concern for the revenue consequences. Others supported the decision as a means of securing open trading conditions. The authors argue that neither the inhibitions nor the enthusiasm is fully justified. First, even if all delivery of digitizable media products moved on-line–an unlikely prospect–the revenue loss for most countries would be small. More important, however, the prohibition of customs duties does not ensure continued open access for electronically delivered products and may even prompt recourse to inferior instruments of protection. Barrier-free electronic commerce would be more effectively secured by deepening and widening the limited cross-border trade commitments under the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), and by clarifying and strengthening certain GATS disciplines.
