Online shopping can be a great experience. You see this wonderful pair of shoes online and you just need to get them. They are beautiful, they are really cheap and you can't stop thinking about them... How to avoid great frustration and be as happy with your purchases as possible?
Check the website
There are a lot of websites where you can shop.
Some of them are very familiar, like Marks & Spencer, for instance because they represent famous brands or because you see a lot of advertisements in the streets.
Others are a little less known. They could of course still be trustworthy, but you just never know. So check before you buy anything from a website you don't really know.
Find them on our website, for instance. See our section on Online Shops and find the shop. What do their costumers say about their experiences with this shop? Were they happy with their purchase, did the sizes work out, did they receive their package at all? Always good to know what others thought about the shop before you might get disappointed!
Check the delivery costs
Some shops might seem to sell very affordable goods. Sometimes that's just because they have great deals, but sometimes they balance this out with delivery costs. And in the end the bargain you thought you found might not be as good of a deal as you had hoped.
Being attentive to delivery costs can also help you find deals to get free delivery. For instance, online webshop Zaful sometimes offers free shipping coupons.
So always check delivery costs before you order.
Will your package be on time?
Especially when shopping for a special occasion such as a birthday or a Christmas party, you might want to check the delivery times.
With most shops nowadays, you can expect your package within a day. But some shops have to order from abroad, or just don't have your item in stock.
Did you have a great experience with ordering online? Or were you not so happy with your purchase? Please share your opinions and experiences with other people who might just as curious as you were.
