I haven't been inside an actual shopping mall for probably three years now. I've been finding it much easier to shop online that it was all those years I shopped in real stores. I used to love shopping with my Dad, but since he passed away it's gotten to be a dreary experience for me. I'm always able to find what I want online at a good price. I've been very happy with almost 100% of everything I've purchased, too. I really like sites like Amazon where other customers give their opinions on different items. You can't get that in a real store.

I really don't think Internet shopping is good! I don't want to name the site, bit I was cheated by these people I could get my consignment even after sending the DD to the party through this site! It was a fraud! I really haven't come accross any genuine source there after! Even if you come accross any genuine site I think it ia always better to go to Mall and heck yourself the goods which we are suppose to buy before actually buying them! We get a chance of comparing a similsr things from various companies or of differend brands, if we personally go to Mall! We need not wait for the things which we have ordered and kill our time in suspense weather we will get the same things what we ordered for or something else! And during the transit there are every chances that the goods despatched may get damaged ! Or after getting the goods if we see that the goods received may or may not work properly! Even if you have warranty then it may be quite difficult to approach the concerned people as you have no one in person to guide you! These are some factors I have mentioned why I don't like to get things by post through internet ! These are my personal feelings , others might have better experiences than mine! Any way Thanks for initiating such an interesting topic of discussion! Wish you all the best!

Both party have their own benefits. Internet shopping: you can buy stuff you need without spending more time to shopping, more petrol/gas to the mall or etc. Shopping mall: You can touch, you can feel, you can see the stuff you want before you buy it.

internet shopping is a more convinient way to do shopping, because you dont need to go out and buy things. while shopping in a mall is a bit tiring because you need to be physical present to buy things. now, the only problem i have with internet shopping, is how secured are we? we are giving away credit card numbers. and lots of hackers out there who will be happy to get a hand on our credit card information.

I think Shopping mall shopping is alot better than the internet shopping. The first and foremost advantage is to be able to choose from the variety and being able to see right infront of our eyes. Internet shopping can't gurantee that the things that we shop would be fine. So, for me shopping mall is alot better than the internet shopiing.

I prefer shopping on the internet, because you can nearly always find what you're looking for, whereas if you out, you sort of have to hunt everything down - for example, the Mac concessions in the UK are quite hard to find, but by going on the Mac website, I can view the full selection of their products. Similarly, Barry M can be quite hard to find, but log on to the website, and there it is, by shade order. The only thing I don't like about the internet is postage and packaging costs.

Actually this good in other way like you can save from traffic, and you also check the best available prices, then you can buy stuff by setting only and not roaming roaming around the store to check things to buy. sounds lazy.. but the advantage is we cannot check the product personally regarding the size or texture something like that... but still prepare to go out and go miny-miny also he he he.
