Most people would religiously tell me that buying stuff via virtual stores is a completely hot mess more than anything else. As a result, I had been hesitant about making my first online purchase for a long time. But, I definitely took the risk one day and I could say that it’s all worth it.
Yes, I’ve been a fan of online shops for a while now. They’re very convenient. I could just be at home lounging on my favorite couch, and in such a relaxed and hassle-free way I could browse for awesome finds and place my order in a jiffy. Within that very same day or the next I’d already have my item. We’re in a new age, for christ sakes; we all got to be taking advantage of that.
Well, my opinion may or may not matter to you, but it’s actually a brilliant idea to buy kitchen thingamabobs and home appliances online. That’s the one thing I realized as an “experienced” virtual purchaser. I got my own logical reasons to back that up.
Something that i do recommend to the novice online shopper would be to check out reviews before you buy, my favorite sites for doing that are wereviewkitchenappliances.com and amazon.com. Becasue you can’t just take the managers word for it, check out reviews from actual customers to get the full scoop.
First and foremost, contrary to this infamous public belief that the ones sold online are fake… virtual finds are actually legit—legit brands and legit high-quality materials. I’ve been receiving items from Amazon (an absolute fave of mine) for quite some time and I’ve never complained even once about the quality. They all look sturdy and durable, and they’re all working so efficiently.
Secondly… missing parts? That’s an urban legend, I must say. The items all have excellent packaging and there’s no way a screw would slip out of the box and get lost forever along the way. The products would get to you as you’ve seen it on the site.
Third, it’s quite cheaper to buy online than on real, physical stores. This happened to me some good number of times already. I’m a budget freak, so if my eyes are on an item, I would canvass for the cheapest yet most efficient version of that specific product. I usually end up buying stuff virtually. These web stores boast of markdowns and amazing discounts all-year long, you guys, and nothing could be more awesome than that! I just want to clarify that cheaper price doesn’t mean cheaper quality. That’s a complete lie. It’s just that online stores are, say, way more compassionate I guess.
Fourth, I’d give it to the customer service staff. They’re the most helpful folks in the world! I’m an inquisitive person, so I would usually bombard these virtual shops with gazillions of questions whenever there are some things I don’t understand about the manuals. It’s always turned out that these people are so ready to answer every query tossed at them. That, for me, is a sign of integrity.
Fifth, coupons! Who told you online shops don’t give out virtual coupons, too?! They’re actually quite generous at it and it’s been making me so happy ever since I started purchasing through web.
