Abstract

Collaborative e-commerce is a fairly new line of research with many very useful applications in the online shopping marketplace. To determine what users expect from a collaborative online shopping experience, a study will be conducted to gather these users’ requirements. A short demographics questionnaire and an interview script have been created, and the script will be followed as I interview potential users. The interviewees will then be asked to articulate the features and functionality they expect from a collaborative e-commerce interface. They will be encouraged to illustrate their ideas about the interface using paper prototyping methods including drawings. These gathered requirements will lead to further research and possibly the development of a new user interface for collaborative online shopping.
