Advancing technology has made online shopping easier, safer and more accessible with the ability to browse and purchase from any device no matter where you are. The advance of advertising technology such as Google Shopping recently launched in a handful of countries (including Australia), further enhances the shoppers’ experience as it allows users to search for products, view images and prices instantly – making price and product comparisons quick and easy.
From clothes and electronics, to tools and building materials, to food and wine – there’s practically no limit to what you can buy online. Anything you can think of – chances are someone is selling it on the internet, on Ebay or Gumtree. There is no denying that the popularity of e-commerce has revolutionised the way we buy and sell. Consequently, the way we do business has changed too. Services like parcel delivery may have been considered to be predominately for getting Christmas presents to the grandchildren or a package to a relative interstate. Now it’s become a part of everyday life for many businesses and consumers.
