No traffic, no lines and no need to dress up nice- these are the reasons why Filipinas are more engaged on online shopping rather than going to malls. Unfortunately, there are some who are still reluctant to make purchase over the Internet for some reasons. Some are still intimidated in choosing clothes without actually seeing and fitting the item while others are thinking about e-commerce issues such as online skimming.
That’s why we are giving you these numerous tips on how to enjoy your shopping with just one click!
Commandment #1: YOU SHALL CHECK AND VERIFY THE LEGITIMACY OF THE SITE
Do all the promos look too good to be true? If yes, then probably it’s a fraud! Always check the contact and about pages of the site to know more about the company’s background in online retail. An online shop which has a secured payment page bears “https://” on its URL. This means that the site is strongly protected and every customer’s details including his/her credit card number is treated with utmost confidentiality.
Commandment #2: YOU SHALL BE UPDATED ON THE LATEST PROMOS
Did you know that shopping from Tuesdays onwards will let you have decent discounts? Online stores usually release their freshest new deals and voucher codes during the middle of the week so if you’re planning to buy something online, make sure that you’ll be able to save some bucks!
Commandment #3: YOU SHALL ALWAYS GRAB A TAPE MEASURE
Girls, it’s time to drop your instincts and bring out your dainty tape measure! It’s always better to refer on measurement charts to know your exact size. This will definitely help you to avoid time-consuming returns and exchanges.
Commandment #4: HONOR THY FREE SHIPPING DEALS
What’s the point of buying online if the shipping fee will cost you more than you have bought? It’s better to add few products to your cart to get free shipping promos nationwide and even worldwide!
Commandment #5: YOU SHALL CHOOSE YOUR PAYMENT TERMS WISELY
Being wise in selecting your payment terms is the key to a successful online shopping. Various online shops offer Cash-On-Delivery, Bank deposit or Offline payment options. It is advisable to choose C-O-D than over-the-counter payment when purchasing products below PHP 10,000.
Take these commandments by heart and ace the art of online shopping!
