The global pandemic has fueled online shopping surge Because 2022 is projected to be the first trillion-dollar year for online sales. The first hit in 2020, when online consumer spend hit a record $813 billion, was a 42% increase from 2019, just a year ago.
Before the pandemic, online shopping was another way of shopping. Online shopping would be your last resource if you couldn’t find what you were looking for in a physical store. Now we are accustomed to one-click purchases of particularly popular groceries, home improvement products and sporting goods. So the world of e-shopping has changed the face of us and we face more shopping failures than ever before.
So today, we wrap up some of the funniest, weirdest, and most disappointing examples of what happens when online shopping goes wrong, and provide a good “expectation” versus “reality” experience. Let us know in the comments if you have also been betrayed by an item you purchased online! More brutal online shopping failures can be found in previous posts here, here, here and here.
