There was never a better time for shopping online than this. Hundreds of online shopping sites are competing with each other & giving unbelievable offers to attract the customers.
Earlier people were scared of using their credit/debit cards or netbanking accounts online but many of the top sites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal etc. have gained the trust of the customers.
And even if you don’t want to pay online, there is a cash on delivery facility available in which you pay only after receiving the product from the shopping site.
But there is still one major problem that is holding back these customer to buy things online.
There are many people who want to take advantage of the huge discount offers provided by online shopping sites but they don’t buy it because they want to feel or check the product offline.
So if this is your problem then you don’t worry at all..
You just need to think like thousands of smart buyers.
So what a smart buyer do??
There are 2 easy ways you can follow. Just check them below:-
1. Check & try offline & buy online
Do you know many of the shopping malls like Shoppers Stop, Central, Croma, EZone, Lifestyle are doing the good business only when there is some mega sale.
But you can find the discounted prices 24×7 on online shopping sites. You can get further discount if you use the promo code offered by these websites.
So if you are getting much better price online then why’ll you buy anything from these offline stores.
But, even if you don’t want to buy anything from these offline stores, you need to visit these stores!
You need to go there not to buy but to check & try the product!!
If you want to buy footwear or clothing then you can visit Central Mall, Lifestyle, Shoppers Stop or any local store in your area & then try & check different garments that suits you.
If you want to buy electronics item like mobile, tablet PC, laptop or most probably smart TV then you can visit Croma, Ezone or any local electronics store & check the audio & picture quality & other features of the product.
Then either you can note the brands name with price or take a picture of the product on your mobile.
If you have 3G connection in your mobile then you can compare the price of the products immediately on your phone.
Or you can come home & spend sometime checking & comparing the prices of the same products you have seen in offline store.
One important thing to remember is that the price of the product you will see on shopping site is not final. You can find dozens of coupons on coupon sites like OfferDeals.co.in which can give additional discounts up-to 50%.
So this way, you can see the physical product & save lots of money by ordering on online shopping sites.
But if you don’t have time to go to the offline store then you can check the next method.
2. Order multiple items
One thing that I love most about these shopping sites is their hassle free return policy.
You just make a single call to their customer care & everything is taken care by them to collect your returned product & refund all your money back to your bank account.
You need to take full advantage of this return policy.
If you are confused between multiple items and not able to decide which one to choose, then order all the items.
Then after receiving the product, you can try & keep the products you like. You can contact the customer care of the website to return the remaining items.
With in 2-3 days, their person will come to your place to collect the items & you will get your refund for the returned products in next 5-7 days.
I am using these policies from more than a year & getting huge discounts online for my offline-tried products.
And you can get the benefits too!
