    I think Asians were always been hesitated to buy online. They want to go to physical markets and purchase product after deep selection. But now, trend is changing due to internet revolution in India. Indians are crazy for computer and internet. India is a big market and there is a bright future for online shopping.

    ASian countries are somehow considering online buying these days. Although some users are hesitant on doing it, some of them are active on buying online. There are sites that are now offering noadays, there are also group deals.

    Well not all. There are some that are risky to shop online especially if you are not that familiar with how such online shops work and process your information securely. Though knowing which one's risky are quite some tough work to do, it is very important to at least know on how to detect a probable fraud or less secure online shop by every online users.

    The risk of buying online prevents many users from doing it as some people have been victims of getting fake or useless products other than those that were displayed on the site with no means of getting a replacement or refund. Cyber crime in India is impossible to sue and there are no means of any help available if you become a victim of online shopping fraud. So yes people in India are surely hesitant to buy online as buying physically ensures the buyer's safety and seeing the product physically it becomes easy to decide and judge its quality.

    There are always a risk in buying online that is why you need to research first on what kind of website are you dealing with. Second, is the person you are dealing with (if there is a third party) and the quality of the product. Make sure that before any payment is done, you already have check the product itself and it's quality. Ratings of members sometimes help you determine the kind of seller he/she is.

    Asian countries are developing their online trading system. It is true that maximum people of Asia prefer physical shopping. But electronics products especially mobile phones and computers are the main items of online shopping in Asia. In future Asia will be very big market of online shopping.

    Once upon a time it was true but not now. Online shopping has become a popular trend in India now. People have been enjoying the convenience of having their order shipped right to their doorstep. Online shopping stores have increased rapidly within a few years.

    No I don't think so like that. I am also a online buyer and I am from India. There are some sites like Flipkart, Amazon, Ebay, Snap Deal etc. all are the good and reliable sites. Buy Online.

    Thanks.

    No, online shopping in India is not at any risk if you do properly. You need to know how to purchase any products, how to online shop works. You will always get the products at proper price but sometimes that price is differ as compare to other.

    From last couple of years even I do online shopping and I have not found anything wrong in that. I think now online shopping have become a trend, people do online shopping without any hesitate and so many facilities nowadays we are getting like cash in delivery which I like more, you have to pay only then when you get your product what you have ordered. As per me online shopping is more secure and safe compared with normal shopping.

    Most of the people are always at social networking sites. Now online shopping in India is better than physical stores.
