We are 20 now!
This year we were able to celebrate a milestone in our company history, as 4FriendsOnly.com Internet Technologies AG celebrated its 20th anniversary.
In 2000 we started as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer IDMT and the Technical University of Ilmenau. We had numerous ideas and projects, which we implemented.
For example, our beginnings were the development of a game feature platform, which was also decisive for our company name, because users who recommended games to their friends were rewarded with a little something.
It was through the game feature platform that Paybest was born. With Paybest it was now possible to pay for services on the Internet. Among the payment options were payment over the phone, paysafecard, Paybox and even PayPal.
With the Potato-System we invented a fair music distribution system. Labels and artists could offer their music through our system. The buyers of the music got not only the song, but also the distribution rights. If the buyers resold the song, they received a certain commission.
All our projects and inventions have brought us to where our company stands today, even if the mentioned projects are no longer up-to-date and online.
Today we can consider ourselves an established company in the field of B2B and B2C e-commerce. You can find out more about what we have already done in the “Projects” section of our website.
Hereby we would like to thank again all our employees, customers, friends and partners who have supported and accompanied us, the 4FriendsOnly.com Internet Technologies AG, over the 20 years.
