ONLINE SHOPPING ABSTRACT Online shopping basically provides the way consumers go shopping and purchase services and goods with reasonable price on the Internet. For some consumers, shopping and purchasing online have become part of their daily lives, while others may not even care about it. The primary objective of this project is to study the importance of Online shopping. The importance of the online shopping is to determine through two important factors. The first important factor is to know customer perception about online shopping.
With online shopping, you are able to search those items across the world for the best deal. Many shoppers often find cute items in the stores but become devastated to realize that it did not come in their size. When they search online to compare prices, the opportunity to find the size they prefer is given also. They are not limited to one local store or waste time going from store to store. Purchasers are taking advantage of these endless
Although, online shopping is more convenient for individuals that don’t have time to go to the store. If you’re busy with work or school then online shopping can sometimes be more convenient. It’s also convenient since you don’t have to drive, catch the bus, wait in a long line, or deal with not being able to find an item. All you have to do is type in the item you’re looking for and it’s there. Once you find the item, you can order it at any time because online stores never close.
I noticed that many people are starting to prefer online shopping more than in-store shopping. Online shopping is most convenient for individuals that don’t have time to go to the store. If you’re busy with an online job or online classes then online shopping can sometimes be more convenient. It’s also convenient since you don’t have to drive, catch the bus, wait in a long line, or deal with not being able to find an item.

Have you ever needed to go shopping, but were dreading the inconveniences that come along with going to the store shopping? That is why online shopping was made available. For those moments when we know exactly what we are looking for and do not have the time to go to the store. Although, online shopping is more convenient in certain circumstances, one must not forget that it is not always a practical alternative, resulting in the need to resort to the method of traditional shopping. With online shopping you do not have to ever leave your house.
For instance, a collector of fine literature is not confined to traveling great distances and spending hours in search of that “rare” find, but can at his leisure shop with numerous online sellers. Also, some companies do not have brick-and-mortar stores in many of the states where consumers live, so, consumers can just get on the Internet and they can have access to the products that they need, which is another reason why people shop online. However, the biggest advantage to online shopping is that consumers have found out that shopping online can usually lead them to cheaper prices than at the brick-and-mortar stores. And of course, they do not have to pay sales taxes if they shop online. Because of the rapid growth of online shopping, the U.S government started to notice that there is a huge amount of uncollected taxes that should be coming into the coffer from online sales because there is no such law to regulate or address this issue yet.
For instance they can purchase anything at any point of time without going out to any physical store; they can compare the prices of the product from different websites and can purchase from the site where they are getting cheaper; it also saves time; customers can also avoid pressure when having a face to face interaction with the salesperson etc. We can summarize these factors into 4 categories: 1.

Online and in-store shopping is different in many ways. However, they both serve as convenient ways to shop. Online shopping has been a convenience for me, but I like in-store shopping as well. I feel the way people choose to shop changes depending on the situation. I have come to realize that many people are shopping online more and more rather than in-store shopping.
Another convenience of online shopping is that it is time and energy saving.When we shop for items in the shopping mall, we would have to go from one store to another to look for a specific item, which sometimes we don’t end up finding. This usually puts us in a chain of travelling from one place to another, which is generally very tiring and time consuming. However, with online shopping, all this waste of energy and time can be subtracted; as we would not have to wait for opening hours, face pushy st... ... middle of paper ... ...rks? Howstffworks.
