11 Top reasons for Online Shopping?

Given below are infoUg's  Top 11 Reasons for Online Shopping!!! .

1) Convenience: The convenience of this method of shopping is what we like best about it. Where else can you do shopping even at midnight wearing your night suit? You do not have to wait in a line or wait till the shop assistant is ready to help you with your purchases. You can do your shopping in minutes even if you are busy. Apart from saving time and avoiding crowds, online shops give us the opportunity to shop 24 x 7 and also reward us with a ‘no pollution’ shopping. There is no better place to buy information products like e-books and music. Immediately after the payment is made one can download the information. And downloadable items purchased online eliminate the need for any kind of material goods at all.

2) Better Prices: Another thing which fascinates us is the cheap deals and better prices you get from online stores because products come to you direct from the stores of the manufacturer or seller without all those running costs added. Many online shops offer discount coupons and cash backs. Apart from this, the Online Store is only required to collect sales tax if they have a physical location in your area even if you are buying from a store across the world.

3) Variety: The choices you can get for products are amazing. One can get several brands and products from different sellers at one place. You can get in on the latest international trends without spending money on airfare. When you shop online, you can shop from retailers in other parts of the country or even the world without being limited by geographic area. These stores offer a far greater selection of colors and sizes than you will find locally. Apart from that, How many times have you spent your money  to reach a local shop only to find that the product you need is out of stock? Some online shops have a provision to accept orders without stock and deliver it across to you when the stock becomes available. You also have the option of taking your business to another online store where the product is available.

4) Send Gifts: Online Shopping makes sending gifts to relatives and friends easy, no matter where they stay. Now there is no need of making distance an excuse for not sending a gift on occasions like Birthday, Wedding Anniversary, Marriage, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day etc.

5) Fewer Expenses: Many times when we opt for conventional shopping we tend to spend a lot more than the required shopping expenses on things like eating out, traveling, impulsive shopping, parking fees etc.

6) Comparison of Prices: Online shops make comparison and research of products and prices possible. Online stores also give you the ability to share information and reviews with other shoppers who have firsthand experience with a product or retailer.

7) Crowds & Traffic Jams: If you are like me, you would like to avoid the crowds when you do the shopping. Crowds can really give a head ache especially during Festivals and Special events. They force us to do a hurried shopping most of the time. For me grumpy or irritating people and those who smell sweat are a huge turn off. Crowds also create a problem when it comes to finding a parking place nearby where you want thereby making going back to your vehicle later loaded with shopping bags very cumbersome.

8) Compulsive Shopping: Many times when we go out on Shopping, we end up buying things which we do not need because of the shop keepers up selling skills. Sometimes we even compromise on our choices because of the lack of variety in those shops.

9) Buying Old or unused Stuff at low prices: Online Shops make it possible for us to buy old or unused stuff at rock bottom prices. If we want to buy antiques there is no better option than to buy online.

10) Discreet Purchases: Some things are better done in privacy. Online shops are also best for discreet purchases like adult stuff, sexy lingerie and so on. Online Shops will enable us to purchase under garments and lingerie without the embarrassment that there are several people watching me and my choices.

11) Easy Available and Safe payment methods: With the introduction of mobile phone payment services, paying for your goods and services using virtual cash transfer is becoming the in-thing. So with the payment method challenge behind us, all that remains is the “OLD MINDSET SYNDROME” but it won’t stop you from maximizing your precious time, and leaving shopping to the SSPs.

So, what do you think?

Have I not given enough reasons on why infoUg  is right to think online shopping is the next best thing you need?  Some businesses and stores that we are listing with us to bring this form of convenience, include your current favorite brand names which you have not shopped from for a long time either because of your busy schedules or their geographic location. But all this is about to change , because you will be able to do your shopping at your convenience, effect payment using methods like mobile money, PayPal, visa etc, and have your goods delivered at your door step.
