How many of you guys or girls can say you shop in stores more than you do online? Online shopping has been on the rise and it’s no surprise. Its almost dumb to not think the world is becoming technology heavy. Almost everything we do is online, a lot of important things are done online too. Applying for jobs, doing taxes, and shopping even can all be done online and in the click of a button.
Although its no surprise that shopping online has been on the rise, most people still prefer shopping in stores than online. 85% of people actually according to retaultouchpoints.com, why you may ask? Well its simple. Who doesn't like to touch, feel, or see your product in person before you buy it? Not a lot of people.
A personal finance teacher named Greg Lucky had a great deal to say about this. “I personally shop online more often in stores. As much as I hate shopping online it just makes things so much easier, being able to browse instead of having to walk or drive from place to place makes things so much easier. Yeah it may be because i'm lazy at times but I think anybody can agree with me” and that he is right. Most shoppers, about 67% find it a lot more convenient to shop online since it's always available to them.
We all know online shopping has increased a significant amount but exactly how much? Well, as of 2016 51% of Americans make their purchases online according to fortune.com. It was always around that border of 50% in the following years, in 2015 it was 48% and in 2014 it was 47% so online shopping has always been relevant these past years.
Online shopping is addicting which is why it probably keeps shooting up so much, you can find one item you like and it’ll suggest another one and another one and just a chain of events leading to wasting your entire paycheck.
