Dec. 19, 2009 - PRLog -- The present practice of buying products through internet is known as online shopping. It is a type of e-commerce used for B2B or B2C transactions. Now an online shop or e shop is equivalent to the bricks-and-mortar-retailer or a shopping mall.

Today all types of stores have their own retail web sites, the shops which do not have any physical store or paper catalogs also have their web sites. Now the paper catalog is substituted with online catalog which is similar to paper catalog but only available on the internet and do not have any physical existence.

Online shopping which is also termed as “Web shops” refers to a business location where web development, web hosting and other various types of web related actions take place. This type of shopping minimizes the cost by reducing the number of staffs and it is also very easy and effective way of getting products to the consumers and spread it in a large area with less expense.  

This online shopping has several benefits which include:

•   Dealing power of customers who enjoys a vast range of products.
•   The supplier power of a shopper also increases here. A shopper can supply a wide range of products with fewer difficulties.
•   Easy to set up new services with lower cost and overheads.
•   Easy to introduce products to different markets.

A visit to a conventional shop is time consuming and must take place during business hour. Now spare time is the most valuable and rare thing in today’s fast life. Whereas an online shop( or e-shop( is accessible 24 hours and most of the consumers have internet connections both at work and home. So it is easy and less time consuming for them to browse through the online catalog and purchasing things online since it avoids the hazards of traveling. Because there are many vendors available on the internet consumers may also have a good deal of choices.

It is obvious every online shopper need to be very careful about giving personal details while paying through credit cards or Pay Pals. But this little carefulness has the ability to remove many difficult problems and this is why online shopping is so much popular now a day.
