Is Online Shopping better than In Person Shopping?

I mean in the online world you have most every product at your finger tips just waiting to be sent from any corner of the Earth. There's almost never an end of selection because you can just move onto another of the many global retailers. Yet sizes aren't always correct, or maybe that great shirt with the cool logo is itchy as heck and you never would have bought it. It's harder to tell from just a picture and a little description if this is the product for you So how about you?

I would much prefer to shop in person as then I can see and feel what I am buying. However, I buy lots of stuff on the internet. I buy a lot on auction sites...can't resist a good bargain, and when I am feeling lazy, I order my groceries online and have them delivered to my house. I really don't know what I would do if internet shopping didn't exist.

Online shopping can bring many things from every corners of the world but I can not touch the items I want to buy and I have to waiting. So I just like to buy some things that I do not have to touch it like books. Clothes and shoes are the things I would not buy in online shop because I have to try on.

Shopping online is quite fun and easier but sometimes it may cause problem coz you are not sure if the item you bought will be the one that you expected. Shopping in person would be more better coz you have the chance to fit or check the item you wanted to buy especially with expensive items.

The olny upside to online shopping I can see is that I can sometimes find things for less then it would normally cost. I find it boring to stay in the house sitting in front of my computer rather than leaving the house and engaging in some good old fashioned human interaction. I also don't like having to wait a week or more to get what I ordered rather than having it right there and then buying it in store. The only time I ever shop online is when I have to have something and am unable to find it elsewhere or I know that I can get it for several $$$ cheaper then what it is in store pirce.

It depends, I like to go out and I like the comfort of my house, so depending of the product I would go for online shopping!
