What is a Transaction Processing System?

Explaining a transaction processing system is best done in the form of an example: If you started to market a new brand of left-handed scissors, wouldn’t it be prudent to purchase a list of people who are known to be left-handed and who have previously purchased products designed for left-handed people? We can do that!
