ART of Online Shopping

Shopping is a necessity whether you enjoy it or not. Daily shopping can be a chore but it could also be a pleasure if one developed a routine that could get you what you wanted with significant savings. On the other hand, occasional shopping such as shopping for a present or special item may be a joy, but if one could not find the merchandise one would like to purchase, the shopping experience might also be very stressful. When one shops at a store, encountering with a pleasant and knowledgeable salesperson can make one's shopping experience enjoyable. Unfortunately, the general quality of salesmanship in retail stores in today's environment is deteriorating. Due to the high labor costs, most stores could not afford adequate sales support. The ones do maintain an adequate sales staff sometimes intimidate certain shoppers who either dislike high pressure salespersons or view salespersons as added overhead to the price of merchandise.        


Online shopping is a new culture and it is an inevitable activity in view of the busy schedules everyone keeps. Whether for a homemaker or for a career person, time has become the most valuable commodity. For young or senior shoppers, transportation (and ultimately time) often is the biggest deterrent to physically going out shopping. Therefore, online shopping has filled a need. It is no wonder that the annual growth of online shopping is increasing at an impressive rate at the expense of shopping malls. As a new culture propelled by Internet and technological and social changes, online shopping is still unfamiliar to the majority of shoppers.
