Business to Business online shopping began in the UK in 1981. Business to Consumer online shopping began in the UK in 1984. Both kinds of online shopping were pre-internet.

The internet became available for commercial use around 1993 and within a few years there were a number of online shopping sites. Internet shopping expanded in a big way from 2000 onwards.
