There may be various reasons why consumers would prefer to shop online rather than in brick-and-mortar stores, including time flexibility and the opportunity to engage in impulsive buying or directly responding to an advertisement (Kau et al. 2003). 2.1.3 Age and Gender Attitude towards Online Shopping Males have been described as the first profile of a typical internet shopper (Sorce et al. 2005), but this has now changed. Studies show that there are no preferential differences between genders when shopping online (Settle & Alreck 2002). When it comes to age differences, Sorce (2005) suggests that younger consumers agree that online shopping is more convenient, even if, as a group, they are more engaged in the search for different products rather than actually purchasing the product. The study continues by showing that, older consumers, on the other hand, tend to purchase more in relation to the amount of search they conduct for the different products. There is, however, a substantial amount of research that focuses on who is the actual consumer of the internet. Some research suggest that the online consumer depends on demographics such as income, education and age (Sorce et al. 2005). Others suggest that age affects the level of pre-purchase search in manner that it is negatively correlated but positively correlated when online purchases (Sorce et al. 2005). This means that as age increases, the level of purchases increases but the level of pre-purchase research decreases. 2.2 The Brick-and-Mortar Shopping Experience>GET ANSWER
