It is sometimes believed that the “real world” makes no difference in Internet shopping. This paper examines how off-line distribution systems of merchandise affect the spatial extent of Internetbased shopping in Korea.

The analysis revealed that the distribution of convenience shops and transit network did limit the spatial extent of the market hinterland of the case e-shop, and that there is also a strong preponderance of buyers within and nearby the district where the e-shop headquarters and distribution center are located.
