Online shopping

Benefits of Online Shopping

When it comes to shopping, more and more of us are letting our fingers (and our mice) do the walking.

Online sales are expected to hit $211 billion this year. That is a rise of 20 percent over last year and comes just three years after the industry hit the $100 billion milestone, according to the 2006 State of Retailing Online report from Shop.org and Forrester Research.

Here are seven reasons it makes sense to shop online:

1. Lower prices. Online shopping can reduce overhead costs in a variety of ways, which can translate to lower prices for you. In fact, one 2004 study found online prices to be 6 to 16 percent lower than offline prices.

2. More savings with online coupons. Many times, shoppers can save even further with an online coupon or coupon code. According to a 2005 Bizrate/Shopzilla report, 71 percent of online shoppers said they were able to find better discount offers and sales online, as compared to shopping through a catalog or traditional retail merchant. Online retailers may issue a button or text link that will apply an automatic savings to your order, or they may issue a specific coupon code to be entered at checkout.

3. Research capabilities. The Internet allows you to easily compare products and prices, so you can be sure that the item you purchase is the exact item you want. Online merchants can publish much more information about their product on a website than they could affordably publish in a print catalog. And online stores give you the ability to share information and reviews with other shoppers who have firsthand experience with a product or retailer. As Internet connection speeds continue to increase for larger segments of the population, these types of interactive features will become even more important. Zappos.com, a leading shoe retailer, for example, allows you to view most shoes from as many as eight different angles, including a close up.

4. Increased selection. Warehousing logistics can be much simpler for an online retailer, and many of the online superstores have a staggering inventory to choose from. Plus, as a consumer, you can avoid the inconvenience of physically traveling among online stores to comparison shop. A simple online search can lead you to the right product at the right price, fast.

5. Convenience. An online store allows you to shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So you can shop at your leisure, regardless of your time zone. This is particularly important for those of us who are limited in our ability to get to a brick and mortar store. The elderly, as well as parents of young children, for example, may have a more relaxed shopping experience in front of the computer screen.

6. Saves time. So much of the vast variety of products and product information is easily searchable. Plus, there is no traveling, parking, and walking involved.

7. Environmental Benefits. Recent studies are showing that shopping online leads to reduced fuel consumption and air pollution, because so much of our car travel is dedicated to shopping. Plus, shopping online reduces the need for print catalogs and excess packaging. And downloadable items purchased online eliminate the need for any kind of material goods at all.

 

Disadvantages of Online Shopping

Online shopping has emerged as the new of way of buying stuff. Everyone is happy with this new method of shopping as it provides considerable easy over the other alternative of brick and mortar shopping. People like online shopping because it is easy, you can buy your favorite products from the comforts of your home, it is cheap, since there are lesser marketing and other costs associated with maintaining a physical store; online goods are generally cheaper, you don't have to burn your fuel in going to the store, then looking for a parking and then physically selecting the good. It also gives a wider choice in terms of the range of products available; since an online store does not have to maintain the entire inventory, they provide you a wider range.

However all that glitters is not gold and similarly online shopping also has some pitfalls or risks associated with it. Though there are a lot of advantages associated with online shopping there are also some risks associated with it. A lot of these risks are basically people dependent and can be prevented by being a little vigilant and following some basic precaution. Here I am trying to enumerate a few of them.

Frauds

Credit card fraud is one of the most common types of fraud in online shopping. Every time you use your credit card for an online purchase, you run the risk of credit card fraud. However this can be reduced by transacting on a site that is secure. To identify a secure site look out for a small lock icon in the lower left hand side of the page alternately look out for urls starting with https instead of http.

Hidden Costs

There may be nasty surprises which may take place. Hidden cost like unexpected delivery charges or a product that isn't exactly what you had in mind.

Privacy

In online shopping buyers are required to provide their personal information, there is a high chance that this information may be misused by unscrupulous elements. Privacy is a concern in some of the online sites. Some of these sites take your personal data and sell them to other marketing sites that bombard you with their offers. To prevent this best way is to buy from reputed sites, and not to provide your primary email id. You should provide your secondary email id.

Item Issues

Some items are not returnable. Some are used or damaged when they are shipped. These are just nature of online transactions that can be dealt with by being a little careful while transacting.

Time for Delivery

In online shopping buyers can buy item from any part of the world, this may take some extra time in delivery of the item, as even though the transaction happens instantly the item has to physically travel to you.
