Just find out another use of the Wayback Machine. I am thinking about buying from an small time online merchant whom I do not know of. I used the Wayback Machine as a way to check on their creditability. It shows how long this website has been established (or how long since Internet Archive has visited them) and how it looks throughout its history.
In this case I declined to use this online merchant. With one and half year of history it is good enough. However its front page has not been updated since day one. I have a feeling that it is an inactive website.
