Firstly, the risks of online shopping security do exist. There are many swindlers on the network, they may deceive consumers through various means .The False friends are worse than bitter enemies.( 明枪易躲，暗箭难防) Currently base on the not well equipped law and technology, the security of on-line shopping far from guaranteed, to make matters worse, the cyber crime is difficult to detect. The current techniques have not yet reached the stage that allow people to be assured of the on-line shopping. In this case, the online shopping should be forbidden, as the Chinese saying goes—sharp tools mark good work(工欲善其事必先利其器)but where is the sharp tools?
The quality of the goods on-line can not be guaranteed. The actual goods are often not matched with their photos and descriptions on-line. If we buy clothes or shoes, we may buy the clothes or shoes of which the size is not suitable for us, because we can’t try them on before we buy them. Besides, there are many inferior or counterfeit goods which may be seriously harmful to the customers’ physical and mental health.
Perha the other side says that online shopping can save time, now let us calculate the time for you. Since we decide buy a commodity, we have to squat in front of a computer comparing a shop to another, because different shops have different prices and reputations, and we don’t want to be cheated. This process will cost a lot of time unavoidably. After we have selected one shop, we then have to consult about the item number and bargain with the manager. More seriously, we have to wait for some time lag which is uncertain before the goods arrive. When we wait for the goods, we have to pay attention to the phone from the delivery courier companies, if we don’t want to miss it. Thus we also have to bear some psychological costs. It also costs time invisibly that we reject the goods which are not satisfying.The quality of goods is uneven，select the satisfying goods what you need wast a lot of time.
On spiritual level, traditional shopping way is wandering in the street with the family or looking at scenery, breathing and relaxing with a few close friends .so it can promote our communication. On the contrary, how is on-line shopping now? Just sit in front of a computer and wear off our passion and neck! Firstly the computer radiation is bad for our eyes, and we will lack of exercise due to stay in the room day by day. Secondly, we will share fewer and fewer time with family and friends.
The other side argued that the shopping online save money .According to the statistics of U.S. departments, the energy consumption of shopping online is enormous. Shopping online needs a computer, numerous servers will service the consumer sitting in front of the computer for 24 hours .the result is that the energy waste and exhaust emissions is very serious. In addition, we have to bear the postage. It isn’t sure about that the net purchase is cheaper, to say the least. We hope shopping on-line is cheaper, but the fact is that we use the price of an authentic item to buy a counterfeit, no cheap merchandise is good, so the ancients justified…….
See from the perspective of social security, the network is a channel for many black sheep disposal of stolen goods. Shopping online provide a favorable environment for these people, which exacerbated the instability of social life，caused the sharply risen of robbery and theft。
If you want to shop on-line,you must rely on some certain foundation and conditions。Computer，network，online-bank or other。For the rural people on-line shopping is very inconvenient,they prefer to buy things on shop where have some goods that accord with the level of consumption. For our country has many people can connect to the Internet ?Only with the hardware condition can you be able to surf the Internet ,some areas can connect to the Internet shopping but no express to, even the deliver price is very high, good things need popularity , but don’t because of Internet shopping such as well, then weaken the traditional open shop, consider a remote mountain village! Online shopping only belong to a few people, do not belong to most of the labouring people. So I think that online shopping more harm than good.
