How to Make The Best Out of Online Shopping

So, you are a shopaholic and you cannot shake off the coronavirus pandemic lockdown blues? Do not worry. If you have a smart device at your disposal then you must have begun shopping online with gusto.

Online shopping, as we have discussed in our previous blog, is as therapeutic as shopping traditionally, if not more. So do not worry about having to shop online at all, if you have not already begun. Here is a handy guide to getting the best out of shopping online this season.

Shop through mobile apps


Most Ecommerce stores have their own mobile application versions and they prefer you download these to shop. It is a growing trend and Ecommerce stores offer huge discounts on products to get more and more customers to shop through their apps. The reason is simple. While you might not always be on your laptop or desktop, you are always on your phone. Shopping through a mobile app also provides you a highly personalised shopping experience because your metrics are factored in during registration on the application.

Make big-ticket purchases during festive seasons


Indian festivals are the best time of the year to shop online because customers are willing to shell out money during main festivals because they come once a year. This is why Ecommerce giants peg their biggest sales around festivals to attract cash rich customers. So it is advisable to buy expensive electronic items or expensive clothes and jewellery online during those seasons, if you can wait that long that is.

Compare prices through price comparison websites


Well it is one thing to be loyal to an Ecommerce brand and it is another to get duped into buying a product for a higher price because of brand loyalty. The Internet is teeming with sellers in what is essentially a buyer’s market. So make sure you compare prices and do your research well before spending your money on a product. Price comparison websites have come up to help you shop wisely and put your money in the right product at the right price.

Avoid falling prey too offers to good to be true


The Internet is full of people trying to siphon off money from you and it is your responsibility to do your due diligence when shopping online. So Joey and Pooh, the best Ecommerce platform for handcrafted headbands for sale, recommends you avoid opting for offers that seem too good to be true because they will certainly have a rider or a catch attached. Or worse, the product might turn out to be a cheap substitute or a dysfunctional one. Beware of such scams.
