Shopping online – is it the new way forward?

So many shops are still having to keep their doors closed due to the Covid-19 restrictions and therefore if they do not trade online, they simply miss out of any sales during this time. Lots of people do not like shopping online and although they may of put it off for a while, there may of come a time when they have to. Shopping online has many benefits; it allows you to compare prices easily and order from the comfort of your home. There are also some down sides to shopping online such as having to often pay a delivery fee (even for cheaper items), having to wait to have your item delivered and maybe finding out that an item you thought was on its way is actually out of stock. As we all know, sizes can vary from shop to shop and even product to product so it can be hard to ensure you select the right size without being able to see the product. You should be able to return most items bought online but you may have to pay to return it as not all shops offer free returns. This is definitely something you should check before purchasing.
