In the emerging trend of electronic data interchange, Iran’s political, economical and social issues have been diverted to a more aggressive approach to the world of e-commerce, that despite the shadowing issues of the past, Iran already internalized the promising craft of e-commerce through various IT adoption techniques and skills. In line with this, this study is aimed to the growing emergence on Iran’s SMEs and how e-commerce contributes to the success of IT adoption.
