When you go for a shopping I do not think you carry a lot of money. If you are lazy like me, you will prefer shopping online rather than going to the shops and spend extra money for everything you see. Being lazy adds many such advantages to itself. But many times when you shop, you wish small business shops should also have an option to use Credit and Debit cards.
