If you are one among the millions who think that online shopping is costly compared to traditional shopping, you definitely have to read this article, and understand the truth about online shopping.
3 Reasons why online shopping is better
- The costs like rent for space, maintenance, wages to shopkeepers, electricity bills, water bills, tax etc. are avoided for the seller thus reducing his running cost enabling him to sell at lower profits.
- You need not spend your valuable time, energy and money to travel to the shop, pick up and come back. Time saved means, you can spend time for other things.
- Shopping websites give feedback option and ratings and good secure money payment systems to avoid getting cheated, and now its almost a 100% perfect system.
Here is my experience
I wanted a 2GB Micro SD card for my E6. I inquired shops and found that it costs somewhere between Rs. 450 - Rs. 800. More over in the place where I live you have to spend majority of time in evening traffic jams. I headed over to ebay.in spent some 15 mins and got the best deal and got it at Rs. 398 along with shipping to my doorstep !!
