Real life examples of E-distributors are websites like grainger.com, partstore.com. Examples of exchange are websites such as chemconnect.com, farms.com while examples of E-procurement are websites like ariba.com and perfectcommerce.com.

E-procurement (electronic procurement, sometimes also known as supplier exchange) is the business-to-business or business-to-consumer or business-to-government purchase and sale of supplies, work and services through the Internet as well as other information and networking systems, such as Electronic Data Interchange and Enterprise Resource Planning.

Typically, e-procurement websites allow qualified and registered users to look for buyers or sellers of goods and services. Depending on the approach, buyers or sellers may specify costs or invite bids.

There are seven main types of e-procurement:

•Web-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning): Creating and approving purchasing requisitions, placing purchase orders and receiving goods and services by using a software system based on Internet technology.
•e-MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul): The same as web-based ERP except that the goods and services ordered are non-product related MRO supplies.
•e-sourcing: Identifying new suppliers for a specific category of purchasing requirements using Internet technology.
•e-tendering: Sending requests for information and prices to suppliers and receiving the responses of suppliers using Internet technology.
•e-reverse auctioning: Using Internet technology to buy goods and services from a number of known or unknown suppliers.
•e-informing: Gathering and distributing purchasing information both from and to internal and external parties using Internet technology.
•e-marketsites: Expands on Web-based ERP to open up value chains. Buying communities can access preferred suppliers' products and services, add to shopping carts, create requisition, seek approval, receipt purchase orders and process electronic invoices with integration to suppliers' supply chains and buyers' financial systems.
