Perhaps you bore of the traditional kind of shopping, perhaps you simply have too much of a busy schedule to indulge on the traditional kind of shopping; and want to give online shopping a try? But if you haven’t done so before, or have heard of bad experiences, you might hesitate to do so. Here are a few tips on how to shop online without regretting it later…

• Go for a reliable online platform – without a doubt, not every online website and platform is safe. Always do a proper research and find the reliable places. Look for popular websites; as they usually tend to have free shipping or at least cost very little on the shipping and delivering end of the deal. It pays to remember that not all popular websites are reliable…

• Always consider the brand of your purchase – we are not telling you that you ONLY have to buy things that are branded online. Rather, what we mean is that when it comes to certain products, knowing the brand can be better. This is especially true if you plan to buy Chinese homewares online or electronics online and when it comes to electronics, the quality of it and the lifeline also may differ according to its brand…   

• Know your sizes – when it comes to clothes, shoes, jewelry specifically, it can help you a great deal to know the exact sizes you want. Yes; sizes too differ according to what part of the world it was produced in. But that can easily be converted online. Always read the description of the item with care. Pay attention to the material as well as the size. While you might think you are paying to buy Chinese dress, in reality you might be paying for a doll size dress.  

• Check for return policies – no matter how careful you are, there’s a possibility that sometimes, you just might end up buying a product you are less than happy with once it arrives at your doorstep. This is where a return policy may come in very useful. Generally, you need to return things within a week; and in mint condition. So be careful when unwrapping your product!

• Consider buying samples first – some things, like perfumes, cosmetics and skincare products, tend to react differently from skin to skin, person to person. So what was good on a friend or family member, may not always suit you. In our personal opinion, you need to buy a sample first to try the nice product out. This option is available in many major online platforms…

• Always double check before you place your order – don’t do your online shopping when you are distracted. Always double check the item and its description before placing the order. Always double check the address before placing the order; and if asked, provide them with a contact number so they may reach you if problems arise when delivering.
