Being a non-risk taker, online shopping has never crossed my mind. However, by the time traffic has become a two-to-three-hour drag instead of the bearable one hour battle, I’ve decided that it’s time to try something new. Blame it on the service or the brand or the laziness, but it got me hooked to Bing Digital and its online shopping bonanza. Let me tell you why.
9 Perks of Online Shopping
9. It is accessible.
With the bumper-to-bumper traffic these days, everything is no longer as accessible as it used to be. Sometimes, you have to wait for hours just to get to your favorite shop, and sometimes, you have to postpone your plans altogether. Online shopping can make shopping easier with just a click of a button anywhere you are and the best part? It’s open 24/7!
8. It is portable.
Online shopping is portable because you can do it on your PC, laptop, or mobile phone. There’s no one stopping you from being able to do your shopping at your own time wherever you are!
7. It is manageable.
Shopping can get out of hand when you’re not sure about what you want.
With online shopping, you have the option to just browse as much as you can until you find the right item for you. Aside from that, you no longer have to carry all those heavy bags. They get delivered right to your doorstep! How awesome is that?
6. It saves you time.
Travelling takes a while and the quickest trip you can ever have is around five to 10 minutes – one way, but you still have to go home after shopping, right? With online shopping, you no longer have to worry about your travel time because you’re right in the comforts of your own home.
Finding the perfect ensemble no longer have to take hours! With an easy scroll, browse and click, you can sort out your selection to what you want. It’s as easy as that.
5. It saves you energy.
Of course, shopping can eat up a lot of energy and you might end up feeling drained after a long day of shopping. While it is somewhat of a good way to burn some calories, shopping can become too much when your feet is becoming unbearably excruciating. And when you just don’t want to get up during your down days, who’s to judge? Indulge in your favorite hobby without putting in extra effort. Just go online and click away.
4. It saves you money.
While you might be thinking how this could be possible, just bear with me for a second. Shopping centers are most of the time situated in the busiest parts of the Metro. And while you might be lucky enough to live five minutes away from there, there’s a good chance that you’ll have to drive or take public transport to get to one and there’s no denying that fuel and fare costs money. So technically, you still save money through online shopping. Although you might be worried about the shipping costs, there’s a good chance that the company will shoulder that for you so no more worries. Just don’t forget to tip the messenger when you get your item!
3. It is efficient.
Efficiency may not be applied to all brands out there, but if you’ve already done your research, then you don’t have to worry about failed deliveries or sellers going MIA all of a sudden. Just remember to check reviews and recommendations. If you do that, then your money will always be in safe hands. And your purchases, always on-time!
2. It is straightforward.
The best part about online shopping is seeing all the products from the get-go. You no longer have to walk and walk and walk just to find that perfect pair of jeans or shoes. There’s also the search button and the categories section. Everything is being served in a silver platter and all you need to do is indulge yourself.
1. It is all about you.
At the end of the day, online shopping is all about you. You manage your purchases, you control your information and you control the information they send out to you. Best of all, you’re the first to hear about their freebies and discounts. Everything is customized and tailored according to your needs and what you want. Basically, you’re getting the VIP treatment without the VIP costs. And honestly, what more can you ask for?
