As a new business model, E-commerce has become a new driving force for China's economic and social development. In the research of E-commerce on economic growth, domestic scholars mainly focus on the impact of E-commerce on the economic micro-environment, supplemented by theoretical analysis. Based on the field survey data of 14 cities and counties in Gansu Province, this paper uses the Douglas function variants to conduct an empirical study on the E-commerce and economic growth in Gansu Province. The empirical analysis results show that the elasticity coefficient of E-commerce is positive indicating that E-commerce has a significant role in promoting economic growth, but the low E-commerce security index is one of the main reasons for the low level of E-commerce in Gansu.
