While in business of selling and making money there are many of the scams which should be avoided to get success.

 

Online Shopping of books

It's a real-time purchase of books without the involvement of any intermediaries in the transaction over the Internet. This is known as Electronic commerce. With the advancement of e-commerce, transactions over the net have zoomed thereby providing opening up avenues for global trade. Online shopping is also known by other terms such as online store, virtual store, e-store, internet shop, e-shop, web shop and web store.

 

Difference between prices at in-store shopping and online shopping

With respect to price, there isn't much difference between physical shopping at a store and online shopping. Branded items would offer the same price if they were to be purchased from an eshop or local shop.

When a purchase is made at an online shop it would involve processing fee which might be referred to as shipping and handling fees by some. If purchase at an an e-store involves many items; then the processing fee might go up, but some merchants offer some discounts on this depending on the number of items bought. A few online store sometimes waive off shipping and handling fee if the purchase is above some specified amount. When the purchase is done without involving any shipping and handling, the product can be procured at the same price which is available at the local store.

To promote sale of products some merchants offer sales or some percent off the regular price online. But, these offers will be available in the local store as well. To get the best deal, look out when these offers are available and make your pick.

 

Shopping made possible online

To facilitate shopping online, a software is used to aid customers in their purchase. In US, it's called as 'shopping basket' whereas, the British call it 'shopping cart'. Either way; they mean the same thing.

Shopping cart or shopping basket allows user to accumulate the items purchased into their basket or cart, review them, and proceed to check out. When the customer has no more purchase and checks out, the software calculates the total of the purchase. This total will include the handling & shipping charges; with any taxes if applicable.

 

Black Friday in Shopping

Black Friday generally refers to the onset of Christmas shopping season. Black Friday follows 'Thanksgiving Day' in United States. To set off this shopping spree; many retailers open their stores early in the morning. Many store owners open their stores as early as 4 a.m. Needless to say, retailers offer promotional sales to entice customers, and push up sales. This has similarity to Boxing Day celebrated in many other countries.

To promote Black Friday sales, many employees are given a day off even though it's not a holiday. This results into a busiest shopping day. Thanksgiving always happens on the Fourth Thursday in November.

 

Copright a book online

If it's your own manuscript, then it goes without doubt that you are the owner. But, the difficulty is proving that you have penned it. In some countries, your work needs to be registered with an authorised body or some professional body. This involves some charges which could turn out expensive. To help owners of books, some professional bodies accept online registration but they may have some parameters to compily with.
