Change is the only constant in life is so true. Over the time, things around us keep changing and surprise us most of the times. Until a few years ago, who could have even thought of online shopping? But these days it has become so popular that traditional shopping seems to be lagging behind.
As we all know traditional shopping is more like an enjoyable outing. We go to the market, go into different shops to explore the variety available, compare prices and finally settle for the best in terms our choice, availability and price. All this takes time and effort. But the satisfaction of shopping in the market is something to look forward to. Also, after shopping we treat our tired selves to good food at restaurants and eating joints in the market place.
However, as life in urban areas became more and more busier, people found it difficult to go shopping as much as they wanted to. Simultaneously, with the advent of computers, technology started changing so many things. A new way of shopping became possible. People could shop sitting at home and even selling became possible without having a physical shop. The market place was replicated by the digital experience.
As it became possible to shop from the comfort of home or even while on the go, people gave up the pleasures of traditional shopping. Easy return policy takes care of their choices. Prices of online goods are competitive as home delivery makes life easy.
The chances of being cheated, wrong deliveries and financial irregularities do happen but these are as normal as that in traditional shopping. Branding takes care of quality.
The COVID 19 situation gave athe added support to online shopping as well. Now people have got even more used to the online shopping method.
