Guide To Online Shopping For Seniors
As the U.S. population grows older and the popularity of online shopping continues to rise, it seems inevitable that senior citizens will shape the future of e-commerce. In fact, recent surveys show many older adults are already taking to the internet for their products and services, with 41% of baby boomers and 28% of seniors choosing to click to purchase. The popularity of online shopping among older folks isn’t surprising. By shopping online, seniors can save time and money right from the comfort of their own homes. In contrast, brick-and-mortar stores suffer from long checkout lines, crowded aisles, and packed parking lots — three things most seniors can easily live without. However, seniors didn’t grow up with the internet (let alone the Internet of Things). For some, online shopping is intimidating and confusing. Age-related issues can also make shopping online impractical — vision or hearing loss, for example, or loss of motor skills. This Guide to Online Shopping for Seniors contains helpful information and many affordable or free resources to help seniors shop safely and independently. Topics covered: a) Benefits of Online Shopping; b) Saving Money Online; c) Getting Comfortable with Technology; and d) Keeping Your Data Safe. This will be added to Elder Resources Subject Tracer™.
