Shop online

“That’s 91% of the entire country’s population! So far, 69% of Americans have shopped online, and 25% of Americans shop online at least once per month. The majority (59%) of these shoppers bought clothing items, and 47% bought their first item on Amazon.”

The era of the information

In spite of the fact there are hackers on internet waiting for a new victim to steal their money or copy their credit card details, there are many people who do shopping online. It seems to me that doing shopping online has pros and cons. As a matter of fact, there always a new way to do something which could make people lives easier because they save money and time. In this essay, I will examine some of the reasons why some people consider shopping online to be so useful and other people think it is dangerous.

First, it is convenient. You can shop from the comfort of your own home, your workplace, or virtually from anywhere. All you need is a device to search for and view the products that you are interested in, plus some form of internet access, and a convenient address where you can receive the goods that you order.

Second, as well as internal markets, shopping online gives you an access to international goods. If you can not find the right product in your home conuntry, then you can look for it abroad.

Lastly, you have an easy access to price comparisons and reviews of the products that you are interested in buying. You can also easily compare prices at different vendors.

On the other hand, there may be potencial problems with the seller when you buy online. They can describe a product wrongly, or in a way that is misleading, as they have almost total control over how a product is portrayed. They may also be more difficult to communicate with your local store.

Moreover, there all sorts of potencial psychological and emotional problems associated with the ease with which people can buy online. Impulsive buying, addiction, overspending, and debt-related issues can all be exarcerbated. Indeed, it is easier for people to buy products «bad quality», or for children to purchase unwanted items using their parent´s credit cards and online accounts without permission to do so.

To summarize, online shopping is convenient. One of the biggest problems people face is safety. This brings us to the question of whether there are any real alternatives to do shopping online in a secure way. I personally have been shopping online for many years and I had not any issues. It is important to be aware that in most circumstances, your card information is probably less secure than when you pay in a restaurant instead of when you pay online.
