Surge in Popularity of Online Bookstores

By on Jul 2, 2013 in Coffee Table Books | 0 comments

Tweet Pint it Share The popularity of online bookstores is increasing by the day. Online stores typically offer their books at lower prices and customers are able to make the purchase from the comfort of their homes. Online bookstores also offer customer reviews which reveal more about the book than a quick glance of its contents. Online bookstores are able to sell their wares at reduced prices as they are not required to rent a prime location space for the store. Furthermore, they sometimes do not always physically store the products but simply forward the orders to the publishers or wholesalers. Physical brick-and-mortar bookstores are limited by space and budget, but online bookstores face none of these restrictions. As there are several online stores selling books, the customer has the option of comparing the price of a book across the stores. This is another reason for the competitive pricing. In an effort to outdo each other, stores offer attractive discounts and offer free shipping if a customer’s order exceeds a certain amount. Another reason for the popularity of online bookstores is the convenience they offer. Any book you are looking for is just a few clicks away. You can buy books while relaxing in your pyjamas on your couch at 3 in the morning!
