Buying things these days is so convenient with online shopping. Yet, many of us prefer to shop in stores where we can feel and interact from the retailers. Some people like to know who they are buying from and they prefer to get their senses involved. Buying from an online store does not allow them to do that.
With a barcode scanner, it’s made things alot easier for retailers. This is especially helpful during seasonal sale periods where the crowd and queue can be overwhelming. With online shopping, there is no queue, no lines and no busy stores. Online traffic is pretty much easier to control than human traffic!
There is a time for everything so sometimes one thing works better for another. It all depends on the individual with desires the shopping experience.
