Abstract: The present paper has as an objective the concise analysis of the tendencies we could identify regarding the E-commerce in Romania. These tendencies have been identified after a research, analysing the secondary sources of information we can find in Romania. Starting from the hypothesis that in Romania, on line shopping is at the border between necessity and fashion, we present you a short list of the most used sites with on line shopping in order to have an idea about the dimension of this sector in Romania. Although the method has its limits , we think that it is the most appropriate way to offer some figures about the new industry that is going to develop in Romania. The paper also intends to identify possible tendencies of the near future in E-commerce taking into account the worldwide features of this process. Another aspect we want to point out is the impact of the information technology on the marketing and on the Romanian markets, both final markets and intermediate ones. In this new era of information technology, established marketing concepts seem to be assuming a completely different meaning; the ways of viewing the market and the possibilities of influencing it are taking on a new dimension. Technology plays a prominent part but the human part remains the same. Several studies have been conducted in the last 25 years with regard to Internet use and E-commerce by different analysts, pointing out that the computer power of processing data has increased thousands of times, whereas the processing power of the human brain has been the same.
