Online shopping is so convenient and easy to do especially if you have a hectic work schedule or just love the idea of shopping at the comfort of your own home. In this article we will discuss the pros and cons of online shopping as well as tips you can use to get the best online shopping experience and we threw in some fashion disasters so you know what to avoid.


■ Easy to use in the comfort of your own home.

■ Wide variety of items.

■ Saves the time of going to different stores for different items.

■ International shopping items which are not sold in South Africa


■ You never really know the correct size. You're unable to fit or try the item on.

■ You don't know the true product colour, material etc because high quality pictures show different colors and what you receive may be different.

■ You cannot return the item easily, you have to wait for it to go back to the warehouse, then wait again for delivery of your actual size or colour.

■ Sometimes items get lost in the mail

■ You have to pay shipping / customs if it's international which eventually works out more than buying from a shop.

Online shopping tips

■ Make sure you read the reviews, people often put pictures of the actual item on the reviews.

■ Always view the size chart so that you can find your perfect fit.

■ Check how much Shipping and customs cost, also the company that delivers if they are a reputable company.
