    One of the biggest benefits that came along with the commercialization of the internet was the creation of online shopping platforms which revolutionized shopping as we knew it.

Companies worldwide started selling products and services online, as ecommerce created a huge “boom” in the trading industry. Creating online shops was a smart move for companies as they were able to sell products to customers from every corner of the world, because the internet has no boundaries whatsoever.

Alibaba is the largest ecommerce company in China and one of the largest in the world, with 528 million active users every month. The multinational conglomerate which specializes in retailing, internet, AI, and technology, was founded in 1999 by 18 founders led by Jack Ma.

In 2013 there were 198 million users, 294 million in 2014, 377 million in 2015, 435 million in 2016 and there were 470 million users in the past year.
