Shopping on the web is going to boom. Nowadays retailers are adding in-store pickup, offer free postage and research social media. It really is getting hard to say who pure internet retailer is and who’re bricks and mortar shops with online portals. They all are reformulating the way you will order online later on: using a mobile phone, computer tablet, waiting for you kiosk, etc.
New legislation could be required in order to protect the customers however; this will also affect negatively online shopping. Internet retailers will have to collect sales tax. We are going to mention legislation latter on in this post.
However, increasingly more traditional retailers opting for online selling. L.L Bean launched free postage on all items, Macy’s offers free shipping on purchases of $99 or even more, Walmart bought social websites platform Kosmix so that you can build their online business and Toys R Us got a new distribution center to compliment internet sales.
More and more retailers will implement in-store pick up. Walmart started already through providing in-store pick-up for orders placed online. Sears and Kmart are testing home delivery. Farm Stores in Florida offer their shoppers to order groceries web pick-up with a drive through. Some smaller stores might even open designated pick up locations for goods ordered online (example Chronodrive).
Nowadays people that own a mobile phone may use applications that allowed them to do price comparisons or use coupons to get online. But were just how to get started with this type of technology.
New applications allow people to upload video clips modeling new cloths or using a new purchase. This is the new feature and can definitely pick up quickly.
