The good folks at ZippyCart.com, the reviews and comparison site for e-commerce shopping carts, have put together a nice infographic (below) summarizing the evolution of e-commerce, providing a context and pointing to four trends patterning e-commerce today and in the future – social commerce, group buy, private sales and mobile commerce.
Click the infographic for a larger version. The ZippyCart infographic reads well with John Provisor’s (e-commerce specialists Guidance) white paper From eCommerce to We-Commerce: The Social Evolution of eCommerce (download). We’re old enough to be fans of Sting – so we’d have have bumped Pizza Hut off the infographic for the first ever [secure] e-commerce transaction in 1994 – the sale of Stings CD “Ten Summoner’s Tales” for $12.48, plus shipping, on August 14, 1994 on NetMarket. But we like pizza too.
