Its considerable online presence is such that, in 2012, 1 percent of all Internet traffic in North America traveled in and out of Amazon.com data centers.

Founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos Amazon has been only selling books (Bezos thought that it is the most logical product to sell online). In October 1997, it had 1,000,000 customer accounts. Its revenues jumped from $15.7 million in 1996 to $148 million in 1997, followed by $610 million in 1998. Now Amazon has $1.7 billion market capitalization and delivers a million goods every two hours.
