Established in 2000, the BlackCommerceMall.com is the first on-line shopping cart for African American businesses that is completely hosted on servers owned by an African American company. BlackCommerceMall.com began as a philanthropic effort to involve African American businesses in eCommerce in the global market through education, promotion, assistance and eCommerce classes . The need for our own server was quickly recognized as a need to complete an eCommerce destination where African American businesses could be comfortably hosted and listed within the Bay Area and national Media.
