Online shopping is almost a necessary evil for most of us now. A lot of us shopaholics cannot do without buying at least one item online a week. The beauty of online shopping is the ability to get almost anything, anywhere and have it delivered to a convenient location just by clicking around online. Clothes, shoes, perfumes, cars, groceries, you name it, you can buy it online.
I enjoy shopping online, it is super convenient and so easy. I cannot imagine going to the shops to get everything, especially now that I have two handbags to take along with me. I will do anything to avoid the hustle and bustle of the shopping malls, the long queues and the crazy traffic.
The beauty of online shopping is you can take your time, browse various websites till you find exactly what you are looking for. You can compare prices easily online and you do not have to deal with the impatient and sometimes unhelpful sales advisors.
However there are some issues with shopping online, there are as follows:
- The risk of fraud or identity theft
- Having to stay in for delivery
- A new postal address not appearing on maps or satnavs; the delivery drivers won’t be able to find your address which is very frustrating for both you and them
- Not liking the delivered item once you set your eyes on it for real.
- Damaged item
- Wrong size
- Complicated websites
I can go on and on with the issues of online shopping but that will not stop me from shopping online. It is just too convenient and the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion. What do you think? Do you enjoy shopping online?
