Online shopping is a new way to shop - so someone "invented/discovered/developed" this new way to shop.

That was a small invention - not the most important invention in the history of the world, but it was a smart idea. So now we say that a new idea or invention or a new way of doing something is the best idea since "sliced bread" (the idea to slice the bread). For example:
