By considering comprehensively the features of supplier selection in the ecommerce environment as well as the traditional index system, the indices for supplier selection can be determined as supplier flexibility, supplier credit, product quality, information degree and supply ability. Trapezoidal fuzzy order weighted average operator is applied for selecting and evaluating suppliers, and the scientific nature of this decision-making process of selection of suppliers is then verified through empirical studies. It is necessary to further enrich and improve the index system and methods of supplier selection in the future according to features of companies from different industries and with different background.
