Trade Nexi Launches an E-commerce Revolution


We have come a long way in the history of commerce with the internet making the most impact to how trade and business is transacted creating what we call E-commerce.

The first online commercial transaction was enabled by IBM’s Online Transction Processing [OLTP]   which was enabled the purchase/reservation of airline tickets from American Airlines in the 1960s. Thanks to IBM and American Airlines we moved into a new era. Now you can make purchases or sales with no geographical boundaries, in real time and to unprecedented number of people at once.

Then came Videotex, an tele-visual system that could provide the user  visualy interactive information. This furthered the advancement of online shopping as Micheal Aldich who is considered the father of online shopping took this system and demostrated it’s potential in real time transaction processing in 1979. This became the advent of online shopping. Micheal Aldich’s Teleputer came before the IBM PC, Microsoft MS-DOS and the Internet or World Wide Web.
