In some countries, online shopping is getting more popular and replacing shopping in stores. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?

In many countries,
customers
have become more familiar with buying things online and no longer visited physical stores. While others said that shopping is better than online shopping, I would hold the belief that online shopping has many benefits. Online shopping has several disadvantages for
customers
.
Firstly
, goods would be transported through many stages and
this
may cause the loss of goods.
Therefore
, the packages might go missing.
Secondly
, some actual
products

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
