The first World Wide Web server and browser, created by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990, opened for commercial use in 1991.[1] Thereafter, subsequent technological innovations emerged in 1994: the first secure transaction over the WWW by either NetMarket or Internet Shopping Network, online banking, the opening of an online pizza shop by Pizza Hut,[1] Netscape's SSL v2 encryption standard for secure data transfer, and Intershop's first online shopping system. Immediately after, launched its online shopping site in 1995 and eBay was also introduced in 1995.[1]

Hi, please add below link under "See Also" section, Thanks. Then more wiki editor will find it out, and can improve it further.

AtErik1 (talk) 20:55, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

I noticed that you added the link to many pages already. I've moved the page to Comparison of payment systems to make it more in line with Wikipedia's article titling style guidelines. Make sure to keep the page alphebatized in "see also" lists.
About this particular request, I'm inclined not to link right now. Note that you will be autoconfirmed in about 2 days, at which point, you would be able to make this edit yourself. No need to re-open. Thanks — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 23:01, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

History of Online Shopping[edit]

The growth of the interment as a secure shopping channel has developed since 1994, with the first sales of Sting album 'Ten Summoner's Tales'[1]. Wine, chocolates and flowers soon followed and were among the pioneering retail categories which fueled the growth of online shopping. Researchers found that having products that are appropriate for e-commerce was a key indicator of Internet success[2]. Many of these products did well as they are generic products which shoppers didn't need to touch and feel in order to buy. But also importantly in the early days there were few shoppers online and they were from a narrow segment: affluent, male, 30+. Online shopping has come along way since these early days and -in the UK- accounts for significant percents (depending on product category as percentages can vary).

Growth in Online Shoppers[edit]

As the revenues from online sales continued to grow significantly researchers identified different types of online shoppers, Rohm & Swaninathan [3] identified four categories and named them "convenience shoppers, variety seekers, balanced buyers, and store-oriented shoppers". They focused on shopping motivations and found that the variety of products available and the perceived convenience of the buying online experience were significant motivating factors. This was different for offline shoppers, who were more motivated by time saving and recreational motives.

Original Sentence: Thereafter, subsequent technological innovations emerged in 1994: online banking, the opening of an online pizza shop by Pizza Hut,[10] Netscape's SSL v2 encryption standard for secure data transfer, and Intershop's first online shopping system.

Please add, "...and Intershop's first online shopping system, led by e-commerce pioneer, Stephan Schambach." because of his role not only because of his role in inventing e-commerce by launching the world's first online store (Intershop), but in later years as CEO of Demandware, launching one of the first cloud-based, e-commerce platforms.
