Online ‘Click Wars’ Rage as Masks Remain Elusive


SEOUL, Feb. 10 (Korea Bizwire)As masks are becoming harder to obtain following the coronavirus outbreak, consumers are fiercely competing over masks online.

Masks that come into stock online are soon sold out due to excessive demand.

The so-called ‘click wars,’ where online shoppers compete over making a final click before the masks are sold out, are rampant throughout all online shopping malls, consumers say.

“In many cases, the deliveries are delayed for more than a week. The price is way too expensive as well,” said a local office worker.
