Internet has totally revolutionised the way we shop in last few years and I’m definitely one of those people who couldn’t been happier about it. I know there are a lot of you who don’t trust online stores and especially not the payment systems, but I promise that once you try it, you cannot live without it. And it’s totally safe 😉
There are tons of benefits of online shopping and I want to tell you why I’m obsessing over it so much.
There’s no bigger perk than shopping from the comfort of your own couch/home/bed. There are no waiting lines at the cashier, there is no crowd and there’s no waiting for an assistant to bring a smaller size. You can skip the lines, you have the time and your own piece to decide about the items you want to buy and for what is more – all the information you need is there.
You can do it whenever you feel like you want to shop not when they’re open.
3. Bigger choice
The choices online are amazing, normally much better than in stores, especially when it comes to Studio collections and limited-edition designer collaborations. If you search for more unique pieces or maybe you don’t want to wear the same clothes as everyone else – online shops are the answer!
4. Price comparison
What I like to do is to find an item I like, put it on a wish list/saved items or just leave a tab open and search in other stores, for a similar item. I like to compare prices, as I don’t want to spend money unnecessarily. You’ll be surprised how the prices of high street brands can vary, even the item is almost the same.
5. No crowd
Although I’m not such a crowd hater, I prefer shopping from the comfort of my home, with no waiting line. It tends to be more chaotic when there are more crowds out and this sometimes makes us feel rush or hurried.
6. Easy & safe payment
And here it comes the reason why most of you don’t shop online. I know many of you don’t want to shop online as you don’t trust the payment systems and I don’t judge you since there are so many abuses done on the internet, but let me explain you how I do it.
Luckily, I never really faced the internet abuse, but you never know when something can go wrong, which is why I like to use Visa card for all my online shopping ventures and payments ofc. You can always get the money back if something from the stated below happens:
- If you are a victim of online fraud
- If your order hasn’t been delivered
- If you have received the wrong product
- If your order is damaged when you receive it
However, to make your payments even safer, Visa provides Verify by Visa service, which protects your card from unauthorised uses. Read more about it here.
Verified by Visa offers that extra protection to your online shopping experience, as you’ll always need to type in your password as an answer to your personal message.
There are always measurements of the model on the photo or the measurements the specific item, so the chances for ordering the wrong size are much smaller.
Returns are super easy and some stores even offer that you can return the items in stores, which makes it free of charge. I’m quite lucky with the sizes and items I order, as I don’t need to return items too often, but still it happens sometimes.
My favourite online stores: H&M, Zara, Mango, NA-KD, …
So, who’s up for some online shopping? 😉
