Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Shop Online
Online shopping is taking the world by storm. Be it for groceries, clothes or even car parts, more and more people are signing up and shopping away with just a click of a mouse. Why is shopping online much more attractive then going out to the mall? Read on for my list of the top 10 reasons why online shopping is so much fun!
1. You get to wear whatever you want.
Yes, you can even wear your PJs, and *ahem* even your birthday suit. No one is going to judge you or think that skin of yours is so last year. You get to shop in the most comfortable way you can think of. And girls, there is no need to spend hours putting on make-up or doing your hair. For some Iím sure this is a drawback, but for most of us, a definite plus!
2. No more crowds and scary salespeople.
The days of wading your way through hundreds of people are gone. No more pushing people around or getting pushed. No more coming into the store and having the salesperson watch your every move as if your face had been on the Shoplifters Most Wanted. When it comes to online shopping, you are at peace wherever you are. In fact, online folks are a lot friendlier. You might even make friends while you are shopping away. Iíve met many customers and shop owners that became very good friends.
3. You can take your time.
There is absolutely no pressure when it comes to online shopping. You have hours, days and weeks at your disposal. You can take your time to think about it, and ensure that there is minimum regret. Of course impulsive buying doesnít stop short with online shopping. Still, your time is your own and you are in charge of it. The website will not stare you down for a sale.
4. Things get delivered to you.
As much as I love going shopping, the one thing I hate most is carrying the things I bought. Online shopping has lightened my burden in more ways than one and having my order delivered to me is definitely the biggest draw.
5. Search and compare.
If there are ten shops in the city offering the pair of shoes you want, it will be so tiring to visit all of them to find the best price. If you have a computer and a connection, checking ten online shops is a breeze. With time in your hands, you can search and compare shops to find the ones that have the best price and promotions. Shipping and handling costs varies too so it pays to have that as one of your must-do comparison.
7. Save the Earth.
I know this sounds a little huge but every little bit counts. By shopping online, you didnít use any petrol or erode the earth in any way. Maybe you might have send some radioactive vapors but hey thatís just a rumor.
8. Online shopping is available anytime.
If you are not a daytime person, and prefer to do your surfing at the wee hours of 2 or 3 am, amazingly you can still shop. Thatís one of the best things about online shopping. Itís available the whole year, every day of the week. Even the owner goes on vacation, you can still shop!
9. Finding rare items.
As the net gets bigger and bigger, the opportunity of getting a great variety of items becomes endless. Maybe you are looking for something that was made ten years ago and now itís no longer sold. Thereís bound to be at least one person trying to sell it off somewhere.
10. The Anticipation.
You know when you open your mailbox and you see that shining and maybe a little crumpled package there waiting for you. There is this sudden feeling of anticipation and excitement as you grab it, run upstairs and tear the wrapper apart. Thatís what online shopping does for you. Because when you get that much awaited order, it feels like Christmas came early just for you!
