22 years ago, on August 11, 1994, the first item was bought online. It was a “Ten summoner’s Tales” album by Sting, for $12.48 plus shipping.
That day no one could even imagine that two decades later more than 78% of the total world population would use their gadgets to shop online. Now, sitting in a comfy chair, they buy everything — from pizza to knock-off Chanel dresses for their dogs.
It’s a booming industry throughout the entire world. Also, it is a vital part of your business — if you are unable to accept payments globally, your top notch website and #1 ranking in Google would be for nothing.
