However online shopping has its own drawbacks as we cannot have the real idea about the colour, texture and feel which we get in the brick-and-mortar shops. In case there need a return ,cancellation or replacement, then it entails some time and we will be at tender hooks until the whole thing is over. The post sales service will not be easy and ready as when we deal with the local shops. In case the product needs installation then also we may face problems or delays.
I had done online purchasing for electronic items, mobile phones, mobile and computer spares, accessories and peripherals(including printers), clothes,ready made dresses, curtains, medicines, toys table top wet grinder and induction cooker.
I had faced issues in just a few cases and they also got resolved properly. There was just one or two cases where I had some loss due to the lower quality/quantity supplied. That was because the sub vendor. I did not venture for further procedures as the amount involved was quite less. The online shopping site removed the vendor from approval after that incident.
I have purchased readymade clothes, fancy watches, accessories, mobile phone, car cleaning accessories etc through online shopping. The best thing is that products are comparitively cheaper and we can select from a wide range of websites. We can also make use of the online offers available.
The disadvantage is that we can't check the quality of the clothes, card payments over the net is not really safe, have to pay shipping charges, wait for the delivery etc. It is better to opt COD option. We sometimes combine and order so that the shopping charges get shared.

Many of the big brands also have return policies and if we not satisfied with a product it can be exchanged too. It is always better to have a prior knowledge about the product before ordering.
People do have bad experiences too. Sometimes the product or colour is not exactly the same what is ordered. Few days back I had ordered a ready-made dress but it was not the exact colour I had seen online. I had no choice but to return it. I could easily return it from my home without any hassles.That was a good experience for me.
