Five Tips to Help You Become an Online Shopping Ninja

Online shopping seems so fun and easy. However, most of the time, we are left clueless with so many options available at the click of a button. We have brought you some tips to ease your stress and turn you into an online shopping ninja.

  1. Subscribe to their newsletter

Yes, most of us don’t even battle an eyelid and decline the offer to subscribe to many online shop’s newsletters. Here’s why you shouldn’t? The newsletters often carry information about the upcoming sales and discount offers way before the rest of the world. Thus, you can plan your budget accordingly. There is also the occasional chance that subscribers get special discounts. A good way would be to create a separate email account just for these newsletters

  1. Know your measurements

You need to know your body size and measurements before you buy online. Let’s say you are buying dresses, a size too small or a size too big can ruin it for you. If you aren’t sure how to about it, take a measuring tape and ask someone to measure your hips, waist, chest, shoulders, and height.  A better option would be to visit a tailor who will give you the most accurate measurements. Make sure your measurements are as near to the sizing and measurements charts provided online.

  1. Do lots of research

The best advantages of shopping online are the amount of options you have. Don’t buy the first dress or jeans you see. Visit other sites, check the colour options, reviews, materials used, discounts offered, delivery options, and let’s not forget the price. Become a pro at research. After all your questions are answered, go ahead and buy it.

  1. Don’t splurge more to get free shipping

Many times, you are tempted to purchase a few more items because the online shop says ‘Free Shipping over INR 700’. If your total expenditure isn’t even near that amount, then it’s not worth it. It’s better to spend the money on shipping charges than on stuff you don’t need.

  1. Return Policy

It’s something which we don’t wish to, however, there are occasions when we need to return our products. Many sites don’t list clear details of their return policy. That’s when you need to call them and ask questions like Are returns accepted? Do I need to pay shipping costs? Is there a time limit for returns?

Online shopping has indeed made life easier for us. With places like Myntra and Flipkart which are leaders in the e-commerce sector, the shopping experience has been revolutionised in India.
