In modern life, there are many inventions which have been created to serve mankind, especially technologies. People generally believed that the advent of technologies in consuming and selling has changed the lives of people. Indeed, it is agreed that intelligent technologies might affect to the purchase and selling of consumers.

First of all, people tend to buy products online due to the appearance of many online shops on the Internet. Many goods and products are being bought from these shops everyday and thus the decrease in people going shopping at shopping centers. What is more, due to the popularity of online shopping, a new job has emerged which is so-called 'shipper', that person would deliver the product to the one who has ordered it before, so that the buyer did not have to go directly to the shop, which is more convenient. Obviously, because of the technology, online purchasing may be easier and more effectively to many individuals as there are a huge choice of goods which they could buy from various shops.

Last but not least, people could be able to buy goods around the world through websites, which means they do not have to go far to buy those things. Furthermore, it would help consumers to save their money as they could be able to compare the price and quality of a product between different shops so that they would buy that products with a bargain price. Moreover, shoppers would be capable of buying things like clothes which are on sales or on some special occasions like Black Friday.

In conclusion, obviously, goods and merchandises have been bought and sold differently nowadays due to technologies. As the results, people who buy stuffs online could receive many benefits when go shopping online and might buy various products from worldwide shops with bargain prices.

Feedback

Technology itself is not an invention, which I think it makes the sentence strange.

Many inventions have been created to make our lives easier and have had a huge impact on our lives especially the internet and cars.

Be careful with redundant writing. This is where you needlessly repeat the same words or phrases.

For example, 'going shopping at shopping centers'. It is obvious to the reader that you 'go shopping at a shopping center' so you do need to say it.

'online shops on the internet' is another example. There is no need to say 'on the internet' since you are already talking about 'online shops'.

I hope this helps.
