Even with the advent of online shopping, I am the type who’s super slow to adapt on this technology. Because, I am the type who likes to go all the way to various shops hoping to find discounts and freebies in every item or product that I bought. Never mind the traffic going all the way to stores, never mind the aching feet touring huge shops, never mind the heat and the queue at the counters. I know, I am too ancient on this.
More online shops are up and running.
Another thing that gets me dismayed shopping online is the prices. Most sites that I viewed offer prices that are way up than at the shops. But, thank goodness to competition. Online stores just keep sprouting like mushrooms in my backyard. Gone are the high prices, most local online shops now are offering low prices each week.
More items on discounts.
Online shops left for a while were on clearance sale. Moreover, you can spot discounts more often. Nothing of that thing happen in local stores where discounts are only given on off-seasons.
More shipping options.
Or better yet, more sites offer free shipping if the set required purchased is achieved.
More payment options.
Where before only major cards are accepted in some online shoups. Nowadays, there’s more options for us to pay. Major banks such as BPI, BDO, Metrobank are included as options. Even money remittance centers such as LBC, Cebuana, GCash and MLhuieller have been added in their payment options. And, more importantly, I can pay via Paypal. With Paypal, there’s no need to send payment verification via your email. It’s a hassle free shopping.
Look what I shopped today at Tomato Online Store. Got 20% in all their items. And, instead of paying via bank, I had opted to pay via Paypal. Transaction is closed in a jiffy. Waiting for the items to be shipped…
More online shops. More options for clients. Shopping is easier.
