How to be an online shopping Expert

We all know the whole world is going cyber, people are getting more busy and most of the time, we are not able to make it to the store to purchase some items we have had our eyes on and the worst thing that can happen is the items you really want gets sold out because you could not make it on time. So that’s where online shopping comes in, and I’m here to give you some little tips from my experience of online shopping in Nigeria success over the years, to make it easy for you.

A budget is a huge part of shopping, especially if you don’t want to over spend and the next thing you know, you’re wondering where the next meal is coming from. It’s always good to spend according to your means. Most of the time our budget might not seem pleasant, but the truth is it’s not about how many items you are buying, but the quality and the timeless effect it has.

Selecting Your Items
Being in a comfortable environment and having your favorite store displayed in front of you on your laptop gives you a lot of time to make your choices, but you also need to have at the back of your mind that you’re not the only one shopping on that store. For instance, if you don’t know what you are looking for but you want to add a few nice pieces to your wardrobe, these are a few things you need to take note of.  If you click on an online category for example “shirts”, as you are discovering shirts you like, just right click on each item, placing each shirts on new tabs. When you are done searching, you narrow the shirts you already picked out down to the one that fancies you the most or would go amazing with your wardrobe.

The Perfect Size
There is nothing more amazing than knowing your body so well. For instance, your cloth and shoe size from different countries such as USA, UK, IT etc. This is because the last thing we want is to order the wrong size, it only increases online shopping insecurities. In order to avoid that, you need to go to your closet, and look at the sizes you have on each Item piece (Shirts, skirts, shoes, hats etc). Looking at the sizes, you have an idea on how each Item would fit your body.
Ps: Also regardless of how well you know your body, sometimes it is also good to back it up with the size charts from the store, just to give you a little more confidence when choosing a size. Also some items may read “true to size” or state that the size is smaller. When you find such, and you are not so sure, you can contact the stores customer care, so that you don’t make any mistake.

Shopping Cart
Don’t you find it so annoying when you want to purchase something and by the time you are checking out and you want to pay, and the next thing you know, its states that the item is “SOLD OUT”. I feel that is the most annoying thing that can happen to anyone, especially when you’ve had your eyes on that Item.  In order to avoid that, some website state an item is almost sold out which makes it easier for you to know so that you can purchase it as fast as you can. When a website doesn’t notify you, it’s more likely that the item is yours for a couple of minutes which is also a good thing. But there are I few that don’t warn or give you a right once the item is in your shopping bag, don’t panic!! Just contact costumer care to find out when next the item will be restocked, then you can take it from there.

The best thing to do is to have a drink on your side, get really comfortable, and when you see something you like that’s a great price now, especially when the discounted price seems too good to be true. Just click your way to the shopping cart and checkout like you are running a 100 meter race because when it’s sold it, you are on your own.

Happy Online Shopping!!
