Online shopping is becoming one of the most favorite pastimes of the masses. Most people find comfort in shopping online because they don’t have to go to a shop or a mall just to buy what they want. Online shopping started in 1979 when Michael Adrick connected a modified television set through a telephone by transacting with a real-time user. It’s now 2018 and it has really come a long way. In fact, there are a lot of online shops in the internet and you can basically just buy either through your desktop computers, laptops or smartphones. Everything is easy now that is why it’s not that hard to understand why people fell in love with the concept of online shopping.
