There’s no denying that more and more people are shopping online every day. But why do people shop online instead of visiting a brick-and-mortar store, where they can get a feel of the products in person?
1.BETTER PRICES WITH COUPONS AND DISCOUNTS
The purpose of online shopping is not only the availability of a wide range of different products. But they offer a lower price as well. That’s the one reason why do people shop online. There are several options available to compare prices from different stores. Believe nothing problematic at lower prices. E-Retailers only reduce their profit margin to attract customers. They understand the weakness of buyers. Occasionally e-retailers offer discounts on different products and best deals to increase their sale among competitors. Apart from a retailer’s direct discount, you can use available on coupon sites. For example, daraz is giants in e-retailing, and many of us buy from this site due to different offers we get. Around 41% of shoppers shop online because of this advantage they get. You may also browse different coupon sites on the internet. Offermandu is the only one in Nepal that gives legit information about different offers and discounts on anything online. You can browse through Offermandu website and start applying for offers.
2. SAVE YOUR TIME
Shopping online is much better than going into stalls and shops to buy goods and ask for services to be rendered because it saves a lot of time. One can easily browse through different online shops and e-commerce stores to select whatever they want within the shortest possible time. It takes a lot of time to go into a store and try finding your way around the big supermarket; sometimes it can get worse when the store is not properly sectioned. Online, with the help of the search icon, it is very easy to find your way and get the specific goods you want within a very short time.Also, instead of moving from one supermarket to the other, one can always open multiple tabs on the PC or mobile device and pick from the variety of available options. It is obvious that it will take a significantly shorter time to order for goods and services online than to move from one supermarket to the other trying to get things.
Shopping online significantly saves one of a lot of stress. When you are online, there is no fear of bumping into a crowd or having to join a long queue before you purchase whatever you want to buy. This is so different from going to the supermarket to buy things, most times, you have to get on a queue just to make payment and this can be stressful. Some locations of some supermarkets are also in top cities where there are many people and each time someone goes out to get things to buy, the road can be very crowded and sometimes one can even be robbed if one is not careful.
4.MANY VARIETIES TO SELECT FROM
Online, you will see many products of different varieties to select from when compared to offline stores. On the e-commerce stores, for instance, so many product owners have their goods displayed online with different specifications, so one can select the particular product one wants.On the other hand, in the other supermarkets, there are limited options. Some limited to the products in that specific vicinity or community, some other ones to the goods being produced in that state and the lucky ones get to display the goods produced within the country. In online stores, one can get products being produced from anywhere around the world with just a few clicks.
5. REVIEWS FROM OTHER ONLINE SHOPPERS
According to Internet Retailer, 62% of consumers look for online reviews on a product or service before purchasing it. This number only reinforces the importance of social proof for e-commerce websites. In physical stores, it is impossible for a shopper to know what other customers are saying about the products – especially with the sales people ensuring they hear nothing but the good. And that’s another reason, why they prefer shopping online. Reviews, ratings or customer testimonials for products are offered and displayed clearly on the product pages. The better the rating, the better it is to buy.
All in all, there are many more reasons why online retail is better than offline, but we believe these are enough to adequately point out the advantage of online stores and e-commerce in general. So keep buying !!!!
