Create a written report that describes each e-commerce company (take a screenshot of each, if possible), and explain why each company fits into the category of e-commerce that you have assigned to it. Provide a short description of the history of the company and illustrate how it was affected by or how it fits into the evolution of e-commerce. Describe the type of e-business used by each company. Include an introduction to your paper.

Your assignment should be at least two pages in length not counting your title or reference pages. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed. You should have at least four sources, which includes one for each company.
