South African first
And yes, we were first to develop an RSS feed for an e-commerce site in South Africa. While other companies were still in the dark about RSS, we had already introduced our RSS feed.

2. What is RSS?

Published on our website in 2005

In a virtual world with billions of web pages, keeping up to date with the information you want can be almost impossible. Wouldn't it be better to have the latest news delivered directly to you, rather than clicking from site to site, or getting emails full of useless information?

The good news is that RSS allows you to see when sites from all over the internet have added new content.

You can get the latest headlines and articles in one place, as soon as they get published, without having to remember to visit each site every day.

It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.

There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for - 'Really Simple Syndication' / 'Rich site summary'. RSS feeds are just a special kind of web page, designed to be read by computers rather than people. It might help to think of them as the free, internet version of the old-fashioned ticker-tape news wire machines. Not all websites currently provide RSS, but it is growing rapidly in popularity.

RSS was only found on blogs and news sites in 2005/6, with e-commerce sites oblivious to the benefits of its use. We immediately saw the potential and we were the first African e-commerce web site to actively develop and implement this feature.
