Credo Reference

Description: Credo Reference is a general reference resource with full-text, aggregated content covering every major subject from the world's best publishers of reference.

E-commerce is the buying and selling of products through electronic services, especially over the Internet. Originally, “electronic commerce” was used to refer simply to the electronic facilitation of funds transfer, such as through an electronic funds transfer, which was introduced in the 1970s. Various methods and protocols at the time allowed businesses to send invoices, purchase orders, and similar documentation electronically. Dedicated electronic systems were soon introduced for airline and hotel reservations, car financing (systems used at dealerships), and business-to-business shopping and ordering.
