Commerce had its beginning when the first humans started trading goods, but it wasn't until money was introduced that what we think of as commerce really began. The English-language word commerce has been derived from the Latin word commercium, from cum ("together") and merx ("merchandise").

The history of ecommerce started 40 years ago and, to this day, continues to grow with new technologies, innovations, and thousands of businesses entering the online market each year.
