Don’t get conned and keep in mind the following while shopping online.
Shopping online is now as common as going for a stroll in the park! The physical market place has shifted to the online space and consumers are increasingly becoming fond of shopping on their screens in the comfort of their homes.
However, nothing comes free! Not even shopping online, there are certain things one must take care of before clicking the ‘buy’ button.
1. Prefer cash on delivery – Majority of the online stores these days offer the cash on delivery option. Cash on delivery allows you to get the product at your doorstep and then pay for the delivery.
2. Read product description properly – Many a times the product description is in small font. Make sure that you read them carefully as it might not be the product that you actually want. A dress might look very attractive by the pictures of the model wearing it, however, it might not be a material you prefer.
3. Check discounts – If a product is offered to you with a 40% discount and you think you are going to make a great deal, check on other websites before you hit the buy button. There are also possibilities that you might get a better deal on other sites.
4. Beware of hidden charges – There are many websites which have hidden charges along with the product in the name of shipping charges, packaging charges, shipping tax or handling charges. Make sure to read the terms and conditions before you checkout.
