English Course for Shopping 😊

Online shopping vs. traditional shopping

The differences between traditional shopping and online shopping are: In traditional shopping, you can pay with cash, there is a shopping assistant who will help you in case you have any questions and there is a cashier as well who will help you to finalize the payment.

In online shopping, you are not in a physical store instead you will be in an e-commerce store, it is an online store. A lot of these stores are easily accessible from any type of device you have. There will not be an assistant or a cashier, however, you will find other options in the menu to solve your questions.

There are some things in common as shopping cart and sales.

  1. Where do you prefer to shop? I’d say online shopping for non-perishable things
  2. Where can you find the best discounts? I think in online shopping because you can use a comparator to find the best offer easily.
