Despite the fact that online shopping can be very convenient to the buyer, it also has its drawbacks. You are not allowed to check the item personally to see if it is described perfectly by the seller. Online shopping doesn’t permit you to touch the product, try it on yourself, and take the item the same day you’ve purchased it. You will still wait until it gets delivered by local couriers. There is also a great possibility that you get scammed by fraud sellers who makes online stores for the purpose of stealing money from online consumers. These frauds would promise you things about the item, give you testimonials of how reliable they are, and by time you purchase the item, you will not hear from them anymore and you don’t get to have the “so-called” item you bought.
Another reason why some consumer refused to buy online is the risk the uncertain payment method online and the fear of being a victim of identity theft. The usual method to pay for your items online is by using credit or debit card. You are required to provide your credit card information to process the payment. Fraudulent sellers would put you at risk by stealing your account and personal information together with your credit card details and then making their own account using your contact information. Sometimes, sellers would let you pay for an overpriced shipping costs that far exceeded the original shipping rate. These scrooge sellers would offer freebies enclosed with the item you purchase, but would hike up the cost of shipping even though they already gained profit from the sale.
Online shopping is fun, only if you know how to gauge legitimate online sellers.
