    Today, there are a number of people who visit physical stores to check a product, its size, quality and other aspects. But very few of them actually make the purchase from these stores. They tend to look for the same product online instead.

    The reason being, expectation of a competitive pricing. These customers are commonly known as bargain hunters.

    If you can, offer competitive pricing for your products as compared to that at the physical stores. You could also choose to put a few products on every range, on sale to draw the attention of bargain hunters.

    For example, Snapdeal offers a ‘deal of the day’ – in which the pricing of products is considerably low compared to what they would cost in stores. This makes the customers think they are bagging a good deal, and the sense of urgency around the deal, increases the number of conversions.

    You are right, anyway, there are other reasons for shopping online: for instance, to find a greater range of sizes and colors, or because a certain product is out of stock in the store

    Because it's definitely easier. Also you can choose in the most of cases color you want, size, model, etc. And you can shop from your bed.

    The shopping from home opportunity provides an accessibility opportunity as well as a risk reduction. The lack of risk comes into play when you know that you can find the item somewhere online, find reviews of that particular site to make sure that it is trustworthy and you are mostly guaranteed of the receipt of the item at a lower cost (provided you do some price comparison). This is the better alternative than to going to the store, not being able to see alternative options, and the chance that the item itself won't be in stock.

    Plus, you can't wear pjs to the store :)

    It's obvious that some people love to carried-out their shoping online,because it's very convinient and easy to use,sometime the goods can be ship to your home address without you passing through any difficulties,compare to when you stand in a long que trying to get just an item in a shoping malls,it's sometime boring so online shoping always prove to be the best

    Online shopping has revolutionized the way we do our shopping. We live in a society that has the universe at our fingertips. No item too small to order. No wish too big to grant. With a few clicks, anything we want gets delivered to our doorstep.

    This can be a double edged sword of course, depending on how you choose to use this amenity. It can keep people isolated from society, which almost always ends on a bad note. It is also possible to order weapons civilians don't normally have access to. It all depends on how you choose to live.

    Personally, I dislike shopping online. I find it to be slow and clunky. It is difficult to comparison shop on-line. And when I buy something, I want to have the item immediately. Since I live in a rural area, it can take days and weeks for a product to arrive even when it is shipped the fastest way possible. This also means I'm limited to the kinds of products that can be ordered (no fresh flowers or chocolate-covered strawberries) and if the shipper won't come to my address, I have to drive into town to the post office to get the package. I might as well drive into town.

    I also find it difficult with some sites to get all the information about a product that I want to know. Where was the product made? What is the fiber content or what are the ingredients? How does the product smell? And when it comes to clothing, how does it fit? I'm loathe to do returns. I tried subscription boxes and I was disappointed. I didn't like most of the items and the rest were over-priced.

    The final straw came when my husband ordered from a verified vendor only to find out the product was coming from China and we didn't receive the item he ordered at all. Instead, he received a cheap plastic toy that was completely unrelated to the item we wanted. Luckily he paid through a service that gave us our money back but being scammed left me reluctant to order on-line ever again.

    I love shopping, whether it's online or on the high street. But I especially enjoy shopping online for the convenience. I also like it because sometimes highstreet stores run promotions exclusively geared at the online audience. Also, shopping online allows me to quickly run a price comparison check across countless sites. I love shopping but like to shop smart.

    Because it's convenient. Why go to the store when you can order it online for less? There's always a discount available online and delivery is Free.

    Many people love online shopping because it is very convenient also the online stores usually have a lot more variety not only in the style and color of the item but when it comes to clothing there are a whole lot more selections of sizes. Online stores usually have better deals than the instore and usually, the deal will offset the shipping and handling. I started shopping online due to the covid-19 and it was very enjoyable to sit at a home shop and not have to worry about running into a crowd at the register or not being able to find my size.

    Personally, I prefer shopping in person, but now that Covid-19 hit I have to resort to shopping online. I do see the appeal in shopping online as it has greater variety, easier accessibility, and accessibility to reviews. I prefer seeing the items I purchase in person as well as having my item on hand when I purchase it but with Amazon having their one day shipping and customer reviews, online shopping does seem to be a very close second for me. The biggest problem I have with shopping online is having to return the item if it is damaged, faulty, or is not the right size.
