Venkatesh, M., & Thiruchelvam, C. (2022). “An economic analysis in buying pattern of consumer with special reference to online shopping in Chennai city”. International Journal of Entrepreneurship, 26(S2), 1-17.
In this modern world, online buying plays a vital role in human life. The online consumers select from various buying pattern alternatives.

There is a chance of the buyer losing interest. The customer is also one of the components of the supply chain. Marketers have recently began to participate in personalized marketing, permit advertising and mass customization instead of marketers producing wide demographic profiles and Fisio-graphic profiles of market segments. Buying pattern has been changed generations after generations; first of all it started as a barter system, people exchanged goods with goods. Traditional shopping for talents of the environment are a critical issue influencing the customer's perception Particularly in the perspective of the decline in the contribution of online consumers in primary online market operations, withdrawal of consumers from the online shopping market into safer consumer avenues like cash on delivery, bank taking out, online payment, debit cards and credit card payment, it becomes all the more important to make an economic analysis of the buying patterns of consumers in Chennai City. This may help the policymakers in developing appropriate plans to get online consumers in large numbers so that the mobilization and effective operation of the online shopping markets may improve.
A consumer is person who purchases merchandise for utilization in preference to for resale or industrial purposes. The patron is someone who can pay a sure amount of coins for the goods and offerings had to be consumed. Consumers consequently play a critical function in a nation's monetary system. The patron is likewise one of the additives of the deliver chain. Marketers have currently commenced to take part in customized marketing, allow marketing and marketing and mass customization in preference to entrepreneurs generating extensive demographic profiles and Fission-picture profiles of marketplace segments. Buying sample has been modified generations after generations; initially it began out as a barter system, humans exchanged items with items. Then for the duration of six hundred BC cash got here into lifestyles and that they began out to change with it. Later on for the duration of the seven hundred BC foreign money got here into lifestyles and slowly buying and selling with foreign money changed into easier. And for the duration of the twenty first century on line banking got here into development which made transactions and buying and selling a good deal easier. This on line banking changed into made handy to not unusual place humans and outlets too. They promote their merchandise via on line web sites and attain the customers easily.

Indian online shopping players are of multiple types like; students, businessmen, and employees. Online shopping activity is determined by consumer buying pattern. There is a chance of the buyer losing interest.
Scope of the Study
Traditionally, advertising and marketing concept is primarily based totally on purchaser?s choice thru a lens of danger and return, and the choice need to be an affordable and one. Various purchasers are aware about such mental behaviour even as making online purchasing choice. This irrational behaviour allows us to recognise of the web purchasing literacy stage which creates uncertainty in the sport of purchasing sample. As a result, the conventional online purchasing marketplace concept that is associated with the performance of the web shopping for established is incorrect.

Therefore, online purchasing portals have a robust choice in the direction of doing what others do. Identification of all such behaviour allows the purchaser in creating a right shopping for choice. Apart from mental elements, demographic elements additionally influence the web purchasing process. This look at is online purchasing and purchaser shopping for sample in Chennai City. The developing economies like India, online shopping needs to be expanded so that the marketing sector can rise to accommodate consumer buying behaviour. Individual consumers have a considerable role in the smooth functioning of online shopping into the most efficient hands. Hence, there is a need to protect their rights. There is an imperfection in consumer activism in India, especially in Tamil Nadu. Consumer knowledge relating to the state of Tamil Nadu is minimal. Hence this study is undertaken to gain insight into the consumer buying patterns.
1. To study the monetary evaluation on buying sample of on-line purchaser in Chennai City.
2. To examine the shopping for sample of the respondents regarding specific purchaser avenues and its effect on satisfaction.
To identify the factors that influence pre and post - consumer behaviour.
Hypothesis of the Study

Methodology of the Study
This learning is centred on online shopping, the perception of consumer buying patterns, pre, and post-consumer behaviour, and both in analytical and descriptive nature. The procedure is the rationale phase which rules the final results of studies. It encompasses and leads the study to analyse a research manner which guarantees and enables the truthfulness of the effects, deals with the data amassed for the take a look at, assets of information, sampling plan of the population of the have a look at, area of the research, device used to accumulate facts, method of receiving facts, analysis and interpretation of the collected data with different statistical equipment with the intention to find out the electricity of the accumulated information and limitations of the observe for the reason of gathering primary facts.
Sources of Data
The researcher has made use of together primary and secondary sources to fulfil the objectives. The primary records were composed from individual online consumers. In addition to data collected through primary sources, other secondary data were also obtained from government organizations such as statistical invigilator report in the state. The secondary data provided by these organizations are from their annual reports and bulletin.
The populace of the places decided on for the studies could be very large, and all of the respondents couldn't be interviewed because of realistic difficulties. Chosen handiest samples were taken up for the study. Many on-line purchasers had been unwilling to reveal their monetary details, specially the quantity of cash spent on extraordinary on-line buying to shop for numerous products. Hence the facts had been accumulated from the respondents who had been inclined to reveal the information. To have illustrations from extraordinary socio-financial groups, cluster sampling becomes completed to choose the respondents.
Location of the Study
The research adopted a simple chance sample way. The respondents are residents of Chennai in the age group of 18 years to 70 years including different strata of the consumer like students, business people, retired persons and shopkeepers. 720 questionnaires were distributed to the respondents spread over in Chennai City.
