Shopping online seams quite easy and secure but it sometimes can be a pain in the….. if you know what I mean. Below are some online shopping advantages and disadvantages which I am going to explain in a minute.

This Is The Disadvantages

Shopping online can be fun but most of the time you don’t receive the exact thing you wanted. The other day I bought a set of sheets right around the Christmas season. I thought it would look good having my bed sheets and curtains matching. The price was unbelievable cheap so I decided to purchase it. I thought I will be getting curtains and the sheet sets together for that one price but boy was I wrong.

When the package came it was horse of a different color so to speak. There were no pillow cases and there wasn’t any curtain either. Can you imagine how upset I was! After I saw all that was in the package jumped on the phone and called customer service to make a complaint. The first thing I was told was that pillow cases doesn’t come with the sheet set if I wanted cases I should have ordered them separately and they don’t sell curtains with sheets either.

I was so upset I hung up on her. The only good thing about the matter is I didn’t spend a lot of money on it. So I have learn my lesson well, I know now how to shop online…without getting ripped off.

This Is The Advantages

Okay, as I said earlier shopping online is safe, fast and secure most of the time. You can find things that are not yet in the stores online. There are certain things that you can only find online but they are not sold in stores and other things that go both ways. Online shopping allows you to shop wherever and whenever you want.

When you shop online you can do it anywhere in your home whether it’s in your bed room, kitchen, living room or even in the bathroom, you don’t need to worry about buying gas to go to the store or worry about the store being crowed or even taking the bus. You don’t have to worry what the weather would be like outside because even if it’s raining, sunny, snowing, or if nice out you can shop online.

The thing is you have to know how to shop online and the only way to learn how to do that is to learn by your mistakes. Or a friend who shops online all the time told you how to do it.

How To Shop Online

I am going to explain how I shop online. The first thing is you need to know exactly what you want to purchase when you decide to shop online along with the size, color, and the amount. When you are shopping online most of the time the stores ask you to open an account with them while others might allow you to shop without one. I personally think it’s better to make an account because then they will be able to send you a copy of the bill to your email address.

Now that you have an idea what you are looking to buy all you need to do at this point is to enter the name of the item that you wish to purchase if you are shopping online at Amazon just insert the items name in the top search bar and a lot of the things will appear on the screen for you to choose from.

Once you find the item you are looking for then you click on “add to the cart” tab and your item along with the cost of shipping and handling will appear. Most online shopping stores give you different options in which to pay for your items. Choose one payment method then fill out the rest of the form and there you go.

What I normally do is I find the item I want first then I call the customer service while I am still online and ask question about the product so that I know exactly what I getting, for instance it you are buying a pair of curtains (I know that curtains should be sold in pairs not singles) but when you ordering sheets sets and curtains you have to find out what is it you are getting for your money.

I never shopped online and have any problems before but that’s the price you pay when you order those cheap stuff. For all those years I have been buying sheet sets it normally comes with a fitted sheet, spread sheet and two pillow cases some sites do sell them like that while others don’t. So when you are shopping online you must choose the items carefully and if you are not sure about the item quantity call customer services to help you because that’s their job.


So what did you learn here, that when you are shopping online you should know exactly what you want to purchase first before you start shopping.
