From the evolution of barter system to the invention of coins and paper money, we have come a long way. Like every other millennium that witnessed a revolution or change, the 21st century too witnessed a major revolution in terms of our medium of trade. What was once at the centre of trade, is now gradually taking the exit.

Credit card was introduced by the Central bank of India in 1980 in association with Visa and Master Card. The retailers and the consumers adopted it quickly and as an easy way of making payments. With the arrival of the internet in the mid-90s, it brought in a new kind of boom with people selling their products and service online, known as "E-commerce".
