I'm Jeremiah and I'm a salesman (in electronics). The emergence of online commerce is directly linked to the appearance of the web in the early 1990s. On August 11, 1994, Phil Brandenberger, a resident of Philadelphia, placed his first online order using a secure credit card payment system. The New York Times covers the event and points out that "behind a small click for an individual is a big step for the economy". This first purchase of $12.48 for a Sting album represents the first stone in a building that has been growing ever since. In France, online commerce first developed via the Minitel, on which the big names in mail-order sales such as La Redoute and Les 3 Suisses3,4 were present.
