In a disintermediated business model, the producer needs to do all the activities associated with presales and post-sales for the consumers. Yet, to date, there is little coherent understanding of how digitalisation operates — indeed, what it even means — and what the implications are for entrepreneurship policy. Based on literature analysis, it proposes a set of business expectations from technology adoption, these being the desire to gain a competitive advantage, to remove a competitive disadvantage, improve communication, reduce organisational costs and improve functionality.
The role of the 'new middleman' then, is not only to connect, albeit in a more streamlined way, two distant parts of the supply chain, but also to add value to each part of the process for buyers and sellers.

It gathers research data from an online auction. For this reason, our proposed contingency model leverages a variety of ele ments of the existing theories and empirical findings including transaction price, search cost, liquidity, trust, expertise, risk exposure and technological adaptation cost , which enable us to usefully interpret three illustrative mini-cases involving the airline ticket market, the used car market, and the antiques and collectibles market. As a result, these middlemen should not rely on technological innovation alone if they want to be successful in the marketplace. International Journal of Electronic Government Research, 5 3 , 36-46.
