One of the biggest household names for online shopping is Amazon. The site, which started as a simple online bookselling platform, has evolved into one of the world’s largest and most efficient e-commerce sites.

On the site, shoppers can get practically any retail item they can imagine. Amazon has its shoppers covered for almost every shopping need, from household items to health and fitness products, consumer electronics, gaming accessories, industrial and scientific gadgets, pet supplies, books, and many other items. 

However, product availability is nothing compared to Amazon’s level of efficiency and dependable online shopping experience. Clients want a one-stop shop for all their shopping efforts. But, they also want good deals and safe, timely, and convenient deliveries. Amazon has perfected this art. 

The company offers its shoppers regular deals and provides untampered speedy deliveries worldwide. It also posts regular deals and gives perks like free shipping to members who subscribe to the Amazon Prime subscription service. With such levels of efficiency, it’s no wonder Amazon has risen to become one of America’s e-commerce giants.

The American multinational e-commerce company, eBay, is another online shopping platform that makes shopping on the web one effortless experience. eBay started as a company called Auction Web, and its aim at the time was to bring collectors together to buy and sell Pez dispensers. But, years later, the company has become the world’s online marketplace, and with good reason.

Overall, eBay has at least 1.7 billion products listed on its site. These products are listed in multiple categories like electronics, fashion products, collectible art, automotive accessories, and several others to help buyers get all they need on the site. This could easily explain eBay’s roughly 147 million active buyers worldwide

Besides all that, this multinational e-commerce platform stands out even more for the number of pocket-friendly items that shoppers can buy. eBay has second-hand items and valuable collectibles that are still in good shape, which helps buyers save a decent amount of cash when shopping on the platform.

Another company famous for making it easy to shop online is Target. The company launched in 1902 in the heart of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Target is among the largest discount retailers in terms of sales volume.

Besides the 1,800 stores this retailer has all over the United States, Target also has an impressive 181.5 million website visits during a low season. Online shoppers are drawn to this e-commerce store because of its convenience. 

Instead of visiting an actual Target store to purchase products, buyers can simply order drive-ups using the Target App, where they drive to the store and have the products loaded into their car. Alternatively, they can order pick-ups, where the store attendants do the shopping and packaging, and the shopper only comes to pick up their goods or have same-day-delivery for them. Such flexibility with online shopping is what many online shoppers want, and Target strives to deliver.
