Achieving some objectives like equitable distribution of resources in disadvantaged areas, increasing production and exports, strengthening economic mobility, enhancing entrepreneurship, employment and increased job opportunities demonstrates the role of small enterprises in the agricultural sector development. Currently, small enterprises play an important role in the development economic indicators, so utilizing new methods of business such as e-commerce will be very effective in the development and success of these enterprises in the agricultural sector. In this regard, e-commerce will have positive effects on trading agricultural products. This study shows that many benefits of e-commerce are: providing better services for consumers, finding new suppliers and customers, and improving trade process. Factors such as compatibility, relative advantage and increased perception about profit-making have positive affect in electronic commerce adoption.
