ABSTRACT:
In 2017, an estimated 1.6 billion people worldwide purchased goods of $12.3 trillion US dollars. A typical user, visits an e-commerce website, reviews the shape, size, price of product and places an order. Our goal in this paper is to develop a web portal titled as iCart.com where consumers can buy the images from different publishers by initially paying for a sample image and downloading it after paying full amount. We proposed different workflows for publishers to sell an image and consumers for buying an image using icart.com portal. iCart.com website is developed using Java Server Pages and MySQL database and is deployed in the cloud. In order to protect image creators and publishers, iCart.com is integrated with digital watermarking (a technique that protects images, digitally) capabilities. Using this website, publishers can upload images and consumers can view watermarked images. However, it is not possible for consumers to download until it is purchased. In this paper, our study provides reasons as to why such a website is useful in the current market place, proposes workflows and presents.
