Trans Yamuna area of Allahabad (SHIATS, Mahewa, Gangotri Nagar) was selected to conduct the study. Purposive random sampling was used to select 105 respondents in the age group of 18-30 years with online shopping experience. The number of male and female was 55 and 50 respectively. According to the objectives of the study, the questionnaire taken from previous literature on Internet shopping and its impact on consumer behavior (Zheng 2006) was used to collect data and analyzed using tabulated data simple percentage, analysis of variance and chi square test.
