Nowadays, our daily lives have become much easier due to technologies. Not only we can contact others easily through internet but we can also buy stuffs online. Online shopping become very famous all around the world because it is very convenient to look for and order. It is an easy way to buy things but don’t forget that there are still some cautions for shopping online.
Online stores run their business by using pictures. There is nothing to guarantee customers that what they see is the real one. The shop owner may take a picture from other websites and use it like their own picture, or they may take a photo themselves and edit it to become more persuasive to the customers. When the product arrived to the customer, it isn’t the one that is chosen. Next is to beware of a non-authentic product. Some sellers label their store as “100% authentic product” but they send the fake one to the receiver. Many customers have to pay for the fake in high price. In addition, beware of exaggerate advertising. Those actors or singers that take a picture of themselves holding the product and add a picture caption as “This product is very perfect, I have been using this for a while” are mostly not the real product user. Actually they get money from promoting that product. They don’t have to use the product. They just only hold it in their hand, take a picture and insert a caption which product owner want them to share. Most of the people who see these picture will believe that the celebrities have really used that product, even though they don’t.
We have to admit that online shopping really becomes a very convenient alternative for shopping. Its convenience can make many people forget that they may lead to be cheated. Be very careful when you want to shop online, don’t trust every single thing you see!
