So I’m trying something new when it comes to shopping these days.
I have noticed a lot of online clothing stores that seem to have really cute clothes and great prices. I have always been a little hesitant to shop online because of a few fears I have.
I can’t see the quality of the items I want and I’m not sure I will be able to return it without any problem.
These are all legit and understandable reasons for anyone to be concerned with. I couldn’t help but try these online stores with a little research of course and that meant finding out if these stores are too good to be true.
The advantage to shopping online is that it is so easy and more convenient for our crazy busy lives.
Let me share with you some tips that I used for my first time online shopping experience.
Ask around, get on social media and ask your friends, Google the company to find out if the particular store you are buying from has a good return policy, good quality clothes, true sizing and good customer service.
2. Get in Touch
Communication is the key. Call the company.
This reassures you that you can have some verbal contact in case you have questions or if something is wrong with the item you bought.
2. Find Reviews
Be sure to check the website to see if it has a review page or look at sites like Reseller Ratings.
Customer feedback is pretty important in the world of shopping. Now, narrow down your reviews. Make sure the pros about the company outweigh the cons.
Some people are just not happy with anything so don’t base your decisions on two complaints out of 100.
3. Go Local
Find a store near you that carries your sizes and you are familiar with.
This can help you understand how the style works for your and your body type. It will also give the option to return your items in store should they not work out.
4. Be Smart
Treat your online shopping the same as if your were shopping in stores. Print and save your receipts or order forms. Be careful with your credit cards and make sure the company you’re ordering from is safe and secure.
It might be a good idea to call the company and ask them more about the security of their sites.
As I found out, online shopping can be convenient and fun.
Who doesn’t enjoy getting fun packages at their door? It’s like Christmas Day when you come home.
Happy shopping and happy styling.
