Q. Being a mobile shop owner how you earn when e-shopping provide mobile phones very cheap?
Yes, the e-commerce websites are providing smartphones at cheap rates and there are many smartphones that are sold exclusively only online. But there is a big part of the population who are still not connected to the internet. On the other hand, there are people who don't feel comfortable while shopping online. We have many customers who feel satisfaction only when they buy from the shop as they can hold the phone in hand and get surety about the features. So these customers are still a source of earning for us. Though this is changing very fast, more and more people are connecting to the internet and they are also shopping online now.
