Yes, but IMHO, e-business or ecommere in general just means 'doing business'

Of course this includes transactions online and therefore generating
revenue, but equally this also includes the value chain and reducing costs
by operating certain functions online as well.

If a company is able to accept reservations/appointments online, even just
via email, then that's still ebusiness/ecommerce.
