Popularity of Online Ordering
Online ordering is forever growing in popularity. A decade ago we may have been paying our bills online and purchasing clothing, but the use of the Internet wasn’t nearly what it is today. Currently, we’re in the age where we can order everything from a groceries to a new car to everything we need for a household to run smoothly online in a matter of minutes. In many ways, this is helpful to society, especially for those with hectic schedules.
1. Time Saving
Online ordering and delivery or even pick up save us a great deal of time. It takes sometimes hours for us to go shopping, pick up everything we need and commute to and from the store. If you have multiple shops to visit, it takes hours, sometimes your entire day. With online shopping, you can purchase everything you need, avoid the lines and travel time and have it delivered to you.
2. Ideal for the Antisocial
If you feel your blood pressure rise when you’re in the grocery store due to people talking on their phones, blocking the aisles and the number of screaming children in the store, online ordering helps you avoid all of that. You can get back to enjoying shopping and taking time to browse for what you actually want
3. No Clothes No Car
For those who don’t have a car, online ordering is convenient. And for those who do have a car, you reduce the wear and tear on it and save money on gas by ordering online. Online ordering allows you to shop with your pajamas on without looking strange.
4. Growing Trend
Online shopping is growing throughout the world. In 2016 alone, it was estimated that 1.61 billion people throughout the world purchased online products. Other statistics indicate 205 million individuals in the U.S. were online shoppers in 2015, and statistics project an estimated 224 million Americans will be online shoppers by 2019.
