In an electronic transaction carried out in a virtual commerce space closed on an internet, when persons concerned with the transaction belong to different counties, it has hitherto been practiced that the persons concerned with the transaction manually proceed with business processes inherent in trading such as acquisition of export application and customs procedures on paper base in addition to an electronic payment process carried out on the virtual space region. To eliminate the manual business processing, an electronic commerce system connected to the virtual commerce space constructed on the internet and having a trading function, includes server units in which tax, carriage and insurance premium incurred, when a trading transaction is carried out, are automatically calculated, added, as reference information, to estimation information and then registered. When an order/reception process is carried out between different countries during purchase order, workflows concerning trading business are automatically prepared and registered and trading document information necessary for service defined on the workflows is automatically prepared.

An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
