Money! Well, who doesn’t love it? There will not be even a single person in this world who says I don’t love money. Necessities and needs of an individual may be different. To say, money is even more loved by women.

Do you know, more than 50 percent of people will never discuss personal finances with friends?

According to the survey conducted by comScore and UPS in 2016, it was revealed that people prefer online shopping over offline shopping.

Going out and do shopping consumes much amount of time. But doing online shopping is incredibly convenient. In offline shopping, you will be shown utmost 30 varieties and they show vexation after some point of time. And you need to go to another shop to get the desired costume.

But in online shopping, you will not have physical tiresomeness. Not only that, you can check thousands of varieties just by selecting your desired brand, color, cloth type etc. The filtering options make your shopping very fast and easy.

However, we need to be aware of the risks when shopping from any digital device.

One major disadvantage while shopping online is that it lures you to buy the things that are not needed for you. For example, if you are looking for a pink color dress, it will also show you pink color ornaments like bracelets, necklaces saying recommended to you.

So, you see many things that are not on your list and might decide to buy them anyway.

Whether it is a boy or girl, who doesn’t like accessories? So, when you are adding items to your virtual shopping cart, make sure that you keep these things in mind.


1. Save Money By Searching For Coupons Before You Buy


I know you are eager to buy something online. But just hold on for a moment. We all want to save money wherever possible. For shopping lovers, many sites offer discounts and coupons. So, do a quick Google search of a specific site where you want to shop and type “coupon 2018”. There is a good chance that you will find a coupon code to apply to your purchase. You can check out coupons and deals from DesiDime. Even you can go for gift cards and coupons from Zingoy.


2. Online Shopping Is Better On Some Days And Seasons


Not every season is favorable to shopping lovers. Prices and discounts fluctuate throughout the year. Mostly, discounts are available in November and January and on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Internet experts say that we can’t find any discount in March month. So, if you are planning to make a big purchase online, do that on specific days.


3. Don’t Forget To Read Reviews


A wise person will read reviews before making any purchase. Because product reviews can be incredibly helpful. Some reviewers even upload photos saying that the product looks different in practice. If a particular product has a high number of positives, then go for it.


4. Remember That Even If You Are Shopping In Virtual Stores, You’re Spending Real Money


Shopping online will make you crazy at least for a moment. At some point of time, you will think that this kind of material won’t be available offline. Options like “Buy now with 1-Click” tempts you, as you need not even have to go through the process of getting out your credit card and entering the numbers. So, beware of those marketing tricks.


5. Lookout For That Hidden Or Last Minute Fees


Sometimes, at the end of the checkout process, you will be presented with an extra $20 “special handling fee” even though you find a discount and a coupon for free shipping. This will not be mentioned anywhere in the purchasing process. So, keep an eye out for extra charges when you are shopping online which usually crop up at the last minute.
