Except vegetables and some grocery items, I think lot of things are much cheaper online. I would definitely prefer to get into online purchase instead of buying offline. There are some of the products however needs to be purchased offline if you want to have some control over the expenses.

Even this challenging situation would ease
And its the product companies, who likes more to go online as it increases there market.
Offline sellers does provide discounts which is like for 10 kg tomato, giving one tomato extra. Its the base the offline sellers charge high basically due to the transport charges and showcase charges they have incurred. They want get all the charges from the buyer to get the maximum benefit. Whereas in online, once we place out order then product goes to the ecommerce company and gets to the customer. Customer pays for the deliver alone.
Online sales have gone big with Modi's demonetization move.

I do check online the price of a certain thing before buying it. But there are only so much things that you can buy online. One cannot buy a dress online because one can never be sure as to how the real product will look like on reaching that particular person.
The online price drop is the only thing that attracts customers the most. But that too has another story to tell, in the cases of places such as mine, the online sellers charge additional charges for transportation and handling. Therefore the total price of the product upon reaching the customer might not be that much cheaper. There are also cases of online goods not being delivered on the doorsteps of the customers even after paying for postage and handling.
Lets all try to create a better tomorrow for India.
For bigger purchases advance planning is required and then it makes sense to go to the shopping portals and ascertain the prices and other conditions of the required items before going to a nearby market for comparison and making a decision. There are pros and cons of both the modes but if financial aspect is the main criterion, yes it is really rewarding to check the prices online.
Another aspect is that there is now a very cut throat competition between these shopping portals or to say all such online activities like e-wallets, travel portals, hotel bookings and they are offering various discounts and cash backs etc. which one can take to advantage. Only thing is one has to spare some time for these online activities. A good internet connection ( or wi-fi) is also required continuously.
Knowledge is power.
Now, when it it comes to the quality and genuineness of the product you buy online, then it depends upon the online shop from where you purchase the products. Like, today Amazon is one of the top leading e-commerce site on which you can totally trust. I'm not saying this because it is a fact but because I'm a regular customer of Amazon.in and till now I have purchased more than 42 products from Amazon. They have an excellent panel of customer care services and are ready to solve all your problems and they are solved within the stipulated time period. Don't think that I have buyed some small items from Amazon, I have purchased books, hard drives, softwares, tool kits, vacccum cleaner, mobiles and many more!
Nowadays, buying online is another way to save your hard earned money. And as the saying goes - "Money saved is money earned".
