    online shopping is more popular than offline

    Hello.

    I'm not sure which one is correct?

    Certainly, online shopping is getting more and more popular than offline.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    "shoppingis" isn't a word. Please edit your post and add the relevant spaces. Also, add a closing punctuation mark to each sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The second is incorrect. "One" has no place at all in that sentence.

    I'd use 'becoming' rather than 'getting'. 'Getting' means the same, but it's more colloquial.
    You can say, "You're getting fat; I'm starting to get tired." - Most things in casual speech are OK. But your sentence is more formal, especially if written.
    This isn't a strict rule, and maybe not everyone would agree.

    I think that the comparison would be better made, especially if you want to end the sentence with 'offline', if you were to use 'shopping online' instead of 'online shopping'.

    'Certainly, shopping online is becoming more and more popular than offline.'
