ABSTRACT

The popularity of interactive media such as the World Wide Web (WWW) has been growing at a very rapid pace (see, e.g., GVU 1999). From a marketing perspective, this has manifested itself primarily in two ways:

  1. A drastic increase in the number of companies that seek to use the WWW to communicate with (potential) customers, and
  2. The rapid adoption of the WWW by broad consumer segments for a variety of purposes, including pre-purchase information search and online shopping.

The combination of these two developments provides a basis for substantial growth in the commercial use of interactive media for shopping called Hyper Mall Shopping.

 We conceptualize this behavior as a shopping activity performed by a consumer via a computer-based interface, where the consumer’s computer is connected to, and can interact with, a retailer’s digital storefront (implemented on some computer) through a network (e.g., the WWW). A consumer can engage in online shopping in any location, and they can compare the prices and they can buy the product without face-to-face assistance to the shopper. This reduces the time and it is the solution for the to overcome the traffic and pollution problems in metropolitan cities.

While making purchase decisions, consumers are often unable to evaluate all available alternatives in great depth and, thus, tend to use two-stage processes to reach their decisions. At the first stage, consumers typically screen a largeset of available products and identify a subset of the most promising alternatives. Subsequently, they evaluate the latter in more depth, perform relative comparisons across products on important attributes, and make a purchase decision. So this application provides a facilty to do this to greater extent.

The shopper can take the decision to improve the business depending on the current customer rate and their bills. To satisfy the customer needs the online shopping cart system comes to the door step of very customer through online and provides all the facilities what the customer faces when he shops manually. The shopper can store the Day to day transactions in the database and so that he can go back to any earlier transaction and he can check it.

The customer can see the status of goods delivery also by sitting at home. The shopper can also see the delivery status and can deliver goods to undelivered customers. Shopper can generate the user-friendly reports to analyze the business statistics. Shopper can maintain the list of categories, list of products in a category, list of orders, order tracking and payments through user-friendly screens.

Ultimately the HyperMall System caters all the user needs through online.
