As we all know, E-commerce has slowly become an essential part of our lives. Everything is just a click away. E-commerce is a trend now because it provides conveniences to many. Many youths prefer to do their shopping in the comfort of their own homes instead of heading out and having to deal with parking.
Online shopping by itself has already affected so many lives. It’s a big help to those who don’t have a driver’s license and those who solely rely on public transportation. You can still buy what you want or just do your window shopping in just a few clicks. Have you ever had those days where you just want to laze in bed all day? You can give yourself the comfort that you were looking for, while staying productive by doing online shopping.
The pros of online shopping for youths nowadays is that the prices you see online may be cheaper than the prices in a physical shop. Better prices are available online due to coupons or vouchers you receive from online shopping, by using applications like ‘Shopee’ and ‘Lazada’. You also have the choice to compare prices from different vendors on the online market and get it for a more affordable price. Some students may not come from wealthy families, so online shopping may help them save some extra cash. Although it may seem little, at least it’s something.
Youths nowadays have also decided to start a business online rather than have an actual physical store. Being online provides you the platform to reach a wider audience, whether it is internationally or even locally. You can avoid paying utility bills and rent compared to physical businesses. The risk taken for an online business is smaller in comparison to a physical business. Think about it! You just need an account for an online business which is free, but for physical businesses, you will need to have a physical shop and tons of money to support your business. These kinds of things aren’t just going to drop from the sky.
Online platforms have allowed us to have so many wonderful opportunities. Today, we are able to share moments, start businesses, connect with our loved ones across the globe and many more. Many have taken advantage of this new age technology that we have and many have succeeded on the online platform. This is why it’s recommended that our generation learn and seize the opportunity.
Owning your business isn't hard through online platforms because it’s so much easier to operate than a physical business. You can already consider our generation lucky compared to the previous generation. At least we have the opportunity to experience the advanced technology available today.
