Conclusion

Before online shopping there was only shopping in store but as the world has got more technology, shopping online has become more popular. I think that as the time goes on soon everyone will shop online, but I think shops will still stay in business because without shops people cant visually see what their buying and people may want their item that exact time when they see it and only by actually going shopping you can have the item you want at the exact same time you purchase it so that's why I think that online shopping will never take over actual shops on the high street.

They could also improve online shopping's security levels, with this they could gain a lot more customers. ...read more.
