Books, DVDs and 5 Other Great Buys to Find Online
As of last year, more than 80% of U.S. Internet users had completed at least one purchase online. In just a few short years, shopping online has moved from a novelty to a way of life. Today, you can purchase just about anything you want online, including dinner from your favorite sandwich shop down the street. Have you ever wondered what other people are buying online? The list includes items you'd expect such as books and DVDs, as well as some other unexpected items and products. Here's a list of the top seven items people buy online in no particular order.
DVD Films and Music
Despite the trend toward streaming online media, most people still like to own the physical DVD of their favorite films and music. While people love the convenience of downloading their favorite tunes at various music services, they still want the DVD, especially if it includes special content, like live concert footage and interviews.
Groceries online? Absolutely. From the weekly shopping list to gourmet goodies, Internet users by millions of dollars' worth of groceries from online merchants. You can order anything from fresh seafood to your favorite coffees from thousands of online shopping sites.
Clothing is a perennial favorite shopping item, but it actually ranks rather low on the top ten online shopping list, possibly because people really like to try clothing on before they buy it. The two major exceptions to the trend are T-shirts and shoes, which always sell briskly. Among the favorite T-shirt sellers online are those you can design yourself, though any T-shirt with a clever saying is a candidate for the top seller list.
Many people turn to the Internet to purchase jewelry, especially personalized and handmade jewelry that they can't find locally. Watches, earrings and body jewelry are especially brisk sellers online. While many people seek out auction sites to find antique jewelry and cheap jewelry deals, most purchase their jewelry new from a specialty website.
Vitamins and Nutrition Supplements
Health and alternative health products are high on the list of things people purchase online. Vitamins, supplements, weight loss aids and other nutrition products are a multi-billion dollar a year business, with much of the business being done online where people can find anything they want.
While computers and computer accessories are actually number one on the list of things people purchase online, they're not the only electronics that make the online shopping list. Amazon's Kindle reader holds the honor of being Amazon's best-selling product of all time, coming out far ahead of even the best-selling books and DVD offerings on the site.
That's the list, though it's far from a complete list of items people purchase online. From books to vacations, you can buy almost anything at all, conveniently and affordably. How do your shopping habits fit in with the typical online shopper?
