The internet connects all parts of the world without borders between them. Many people take
advantages of the internet network. One of them is by opening virtual stores, meaning people are providing shops in cyberspace. They show photographs of good with all their characteristics. They also reflect prices, discounts and quality of goods. In addition to all the convenience of shopping online, we have to be very careful and cautious in doing transactions through cyberspace. Many people have experienced bad impacts of shopping online. Here are some examples of negative impacts of shopping online.
First, people tend to become consumptive because quality goods are often sold cheaply and
buyers don’t need to go anywhere. Such convenience raises the desire to continue shopping and it’s hard to resist. Second, online shopping habits create crimes, such as deception. Many people take advantages of this consumer psyche to open fake online stores aiming to get as much money as possible. Many prospective buyers are deceived by such stores only because they offer bigger discounts than usual. Without thinking people will immediately transfer money and hope to get good stuff at very cheap price, but they never receive the goods they ordered.
Third, shopping online may create a feeling of disappointment because the items that buyers
receive do not match what they ordered. Unfortunately, the goods cannot be returned which means they have lost their money and hope for getting good items. Fourth, people tend to look at their cellphone very often to browse various virtual stores. They began to ignore people and events that happen around them. Gradually, they will lose their social empathy.
