Shopping these days is different in so many ways than shopping 10 years ago. Nowadays people often tend to purchase items they need online so they don’t have to leave the comfort of their apartments. Shopping online like everything else has its advantages and disadvantages.
Shopping in stores can often be expensive, because you have to spend money for transporting yourself to store and your purchased items back to you house. Shopping malls and markets are usually crowded with buyers, and the lines when you want to purchase products you choose can often be long, naturally nobody likes waiting in lines.
Some suppliers that have their own websites often need you to enter your credit card details, that is what worries most of the consumers. If they doubt someone can hack their credit card, they will probably choose in- store shopping. It is more safer way for them to get what they want. Taking the risk of having they credit card hacked is harder than traveling to your nearest market shop in which you can find the same kind of goods you can find online.
Some people state that disadvantage of online shopping is that they can’t try and see if products they order will be worthy of their expectations. In store shopping allows buyers to try on items they want to purchase. This testing of the items you want to buy is important if you are looking for clothes or footwear, but if you are looking for furniture or toys for example you can order them online because their size and everything you need to know is probably written in description of the item.
Disadvantage of shopping online for some people is shipping fee you have to pay when ordering something online. If you live in overseas country your shipping fee would surely be huge, so if you have store that sells item you need you probably should buy it there otherwise your traveling cost will probably be about the same as the delivery fee. If store you need to buy products in is near to your house you should probably walk there if you care about giving money for delivery service.
