Few years ago nobody could have imagined online shopping. We used to use the net to look for information about the thing that we would want to buy, but then we bought at the shop.
However nowadays it is completely different, but has online shopping greatly improved life for the consumer?
The greatest benefit is that you can buy things all over the world from your home, also things that you want to buy and you don´t find in your local shop. Another point in favour of online shopping is that you can compare at least three or four prices from different online shops in a few minutes.
On the other hand, one disadvantage of online shopping is that you need to give a lot of personal information to somebody that you don´t know, and frequently this information is used to send spam emails and tons of publicity. In my opinion this shopping has another drawback, you would be exposed to illegal Internet activities, like identity theft, phishing, credit card cloning, etc.
In conclusion you must be well-informed about the online shop that you use and you must choose sellers that give you confidence and security.
