What is Online Shopping?

Online Shopping means buying any product or services through internet sitting at home. Companies had started selling their goods and services online after the revolution of World Wide Web. With the help of e-commerce sites like Pluck Online, Daraz, etc. you can do online shopping in Nepal. From these sites, you can shop a lot of products from your home.

But for buying and selling online you need to have some sorts of online payment systems like mobile wallets or Debit/Credit Cards or anything that allows you to internet transactions. Almost all banks in Nepal now provides Internet Banking facilities. In case your existing account doesn’t have this feature, just visiting the respective bank’s website or a visit to bank many enable this feature easily. Also, eSewa and Khalti are getting popular in Nepal which is contributing for cashless in Nepal.

Later in 1980, he started Redifon’s Office Revolution connecting all the customers, agents, distributors, suppliers and service companies via the Internet. Before this in 1990, Tim Berners Lee had built World Wide Web or popularly known as WWW. It was officially used in 1991.

With a lot of advantages, there are few disadvantages or say limitations in Online Shopping.

  1. Unlike traditional shopping, you can’t physically touch your products while buying online. For example, you can’t feel the clothes with hands, know the texture or measure it with your experiences. You cannot try the products like wearing clothes in normal shops. But a good thing is specifications are mentioned in Online Shopping Sites.
  2. Since you will be paying cash online, there might be chances of frauds. So, always buy from the trusted sites or at least you had previously done shopping with you.
