With the increasing use of the Internet more and more students are using their computers to buy things like books, cosmetics and mobile phones. Some people say that shopping online is best while others prefer shopping in stores, Which do you prefer?
Say No to Online Shopping
In recent years, online shopping has become increasingly popular in China. The last decade witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of people opting for online shopping. Some people claim that online shopping can completely replace shopping in retail stores, Given the security and product quality concerns of online shopping, however,l am against shopping online.
Firstly, shopping online has proved to be not safe enough. Consumers who buy products online need to provide their private information, such as ID number, personal and credit card details which can be stolen and used fraudulently by skillful crackers and hackers. Furthermore, e-commerce using check and credit cards leaves the clients vulnerable to banking fraud which remains the top security concerns for people when it comes to online shopping. Secondly, the quality of the products bought online cannot be guaranteed. Some functional products such as apparel and electronic devices cannot be tried or tested online. Unlike traditional retail stores, online shops cannot provide you with the chance to check the product’s quality before buying them. Online shoppers are worried that the products will not be what they have expected when viewing web pages.
It is true that online shopping offers an attractive list of benefits, with the most obvious being the convenience it brings to the shoppers. Nevertheless, due to its security and product quality concerns, I personally hold that online shopping is far from being a good choice for shoppers. (238 words)
