For sure, you are not a novice online shopper but even with your experience and expertise, shopping online is sometimes still a hit and a miss. When you go shopping for your clothes, you are already proficient since you already know your style, your size and which online store to visit. But when it comes to shopping for your kid’s clothes, you could never be too sure.
Kid’s clothes are obviously different than that of adults. You also need to make sure that they are made out of the best materials since you would not want your kid to be uncomfortable while wearing the clothes. You also would want the clothes to be durable and to keep up with all the exploring and playing around that your kid would be doing on a daily basis. So, when you go shopping online for your kid’s clothes, remember to avoid the following:
Don’t shop in a store that has a vague return policy
Don’t buy products from an e-commerce store that has an ambiguous return policy since you might order the wrong size of clothes for your kids. This is understandable since some of the measurements used by kids clothing online stores vary. If the policy on returning clothes is sketchy or you feel like they would be able to get away with not refunding your money or exchanging the items that is not appropriate or what you order, skip that store and go buy from a more trusted one.
Online stores should be able to reassure their clients and customers that they have a policy for return and exchanges since there are numerous possible reasons for the customer to not receive what they ordered. The products might be lost or damaged during shipping or the items shipped are not what the client ordered.
Don’t shop in a store that has expensive shipping fee
Before you start putting items in your shopping cart, check first about the shipping fee because some stores charge an expensive shipping fee that you would just be surprised about it when you check out. If you manage to find a store that offers free shipping, you are in luck. But most online stores really do cover the shipping fee if you managed to shop for hundred bucks or more. With this, try to do your shopping in one store to avail of the free shipping fee.
Don’t save your personal information
When you shop online, the store would ask you for your personal information including your card details. If you could avoid this, avoid because not only would this be risky, it would also encourage you for impulsive buying. Imagine if your wallet is across the room and you are lazy to get your card. You would not have checked out your shopping cart full of your kid’s clothes and used your credit card when you don’t have the money (yet) to pay for it.
Be a wise online shopper and you’d not find yourself swimming in credit card debts or stuck with your kid’s clothes that are not comfortable to wear or does not fit them.
