Online Store And Shopping
Online store and shopping is gaining more popularity throughout the world, surprisingly in African countries. One of the major reasons for this trend is the faithfulness of the online store owners. On this account i give kudos to the pacesetters of online stores for their honesty and trustworthiness. If they have not been trustworthy, if there have been series of complain from buyers who pay and did not get their goods, online stores and shopping will not be at the level they are today.
Some of these online stores will even send their representatives to delivered the ordered goods at your doorsteps. Once again, kudos to the pioneers of online stores, the current online store owners, the buyers for putting their confidence and faith to purchase online, not minding the fact that they cannot see the people they are transacting with as well as the product they are purchasing.
Buying from online stores with their physical location in your country or state needs little trust.
What of those that buy from online stores with physical location in other country e.g someone in Nigeria buying product from online stores with physical presence in the USA. In such situation, the goods have to be sent over the sea and it is hard to complain or get your money back in case of error, loss in transit or fraud. But still, people keep putting their faith in online shopping and everybody keeps smiling.
