The advantages and disadvantages of online shopping

Nowadays, more and more people prefer buying something via the internet to shopping at traditional markets or supermarkets. Nevertheless, in my opinion, shopping online has both negative and positive aspects.
The first advantage of online shopping is that buyers save more time than other ways of shopping. For example, to buy a motorbike, if you go to shops, you can spend all day on asking about price and information of the product. Meanwhile, if you surf the internet, you can get full information about the product in several clicks; especially, it can be sent fully by the selling staff as soon as you visit their websites. In addition, the price of product bought online is usually lower than that of one bought in shops. There are now a great number of website supplying price comparing functions; as a consequence, customers can choose the same products with the best price, so they can save a large amount of not only time but also money. Lastly, people rarely buy low- quality products if they read carefully feedbacks from previous customers. Today, various websites public truly buyers’ comments about their goods, so customers often choose products having the largest number of good comments.
On the other hand, people may buy low- quality products. Many online stores usually hide bad characters of products, but they only show good sides aiming to attract customers’ attention. For instance, once my friend visited a fashion website in which a skirt that she was satisfied with was sold with a reasonable price. She decided to buy it immediately; as a consequence, its length was so short that she could not wear it when she went out. In addition, many people may waste their money on buying unnecessary items because many shops usually recommend customers to buy one more products through attractive advertisements. Especially, buyers’ private information such as ID numbers or bank accounts can be stolen when websites are attacked by hackers. Consequently, their money in bank account can be stolen or their private lives can be annoyed.
Indeed, buying in the online shops has many benefits such as saving time, getting lower prices and receiving high-quality product from reputable stores. Nevertheless, this buying style have some disadvantages, and to avoid these negative points, customers should find out carefully products, stores and payment methods.
