This paper reports on an investigation into the benefits from e-procurement implementations within a public e-marketplace for the mining trading community. Data was collected from nine established trading companies in this emarketplace with respect to the perceived benefits from their market interactions. The findings are analysed according to the level of e-procurement sophistication between buyers and suppliers provided by the e-marketplace. The results indicate that the more active the buyer-supplier trading relationships become the greater level of benefits realised.
