These days, it’s just so convenient to go to an online shop to go through its catalog and check out with all the items you love. As easy as it seems, you shouldn’t be careless about shopping online, especially when you’re buying clothes. When you buy clothes or shoes online, you can’t try them on first and you can’t be sure about the quality of the products because you can’t physically see or touch them. Here we’ve got some tips for you to shop smart online.
1. Get Accurate Measurements for Your Body (And Keep Them Updated!)
You really need proper measurements of your body before you buy any clothes or shoes online. Make sure you’re measuring your body parts correctly and jot down the measurements carefully. Some stores make use of centimetre while some use inch when indicating their size in sizing charts. Also, don’t forget to keep the measurements up to date! Look at the image below to correctly measure your body parts:
2. Check the Sizing Charts of the Online Shops
The small size in one retailer can be different from the small size in another retailer. Even in the same online shop, it can consist of a number of retailers selling clothes, so make sure you match your measurements with the corresponding sizes by checking the sizing charts accordingly.
3. Choose an Online Shop that Monitors Products Quality
When you buy anything, for sure you don’t want to buy any low quality products, or even fake products. Therefore, choose a shop that has strict management on the vendors and products, for example, Sammydress.
Sammydress has a strict management on the vendors, their products and even the photos they provide. If a vendor provides a substantially inferior product or photos which are different from the real product, it will be blacklisted and Sammydress will no longer conduct business with that factory. Sammydress has also instituted a 4-step process to eradicate potential infringement claims including supplied assessment, daily monitoring, and prevention and infringement identification.
4. Check for Reasonable Pricing
Some shops have pricy products claiming that it’s because their products are imported from overseas. But watch out here, imported goods are not always sold at high prices.
Say Sammydress, it provides the exact information to factories based on the big data analysis and consumers’ required collection, so as to get better price from different vendors and sell clothes directly to international consumers who can afford the price.
5. Make Sure Goods Delivery Is Reliable
Some shops may not deliver their items to every part of the world, so you’d better check if ordering from your current location is possible. Also, you should make sure that the shop has a smooth and secured delivery process because you don’t want to be waiting forever for your product to arrive, or even never receiving the product you’ve ordered.
Take Sammydress as an example, it have built long term partnerships with UPS, FedEx, DHL and other leading global carriers. Each product needs to be carefully checked and securely packed before shipping out. Sammydress also has warehouses and distribution hubs located in Asia, USA and Europe, ensuring responsiveness to the customers.
6. Choose an Online Shop that Values Customers’ Needs
Besides providing high quality products, a good online shop should never undermine customers’ needs. A responsible shop should be responsive to customers’ needs and concerns because a shopping experience is more than just the products, it’s also about the service.
With a 24-hour live chat service and hotline for customers to solve their problems, Sammydress has built an example to be a responsible online shop.
I hope all these tips will make your next online shopping experience a great one!
