Why I will go online for gifts this holiday

Posted on December 22, 2012 01:28 am

This holiday season, just like the last few seasons, I will shop online and save time and as well as few quid. The idea of shopping for gifts online is also growing among my close friends. Almost all my friends have revealed to me they plan to do half of their holiday shopping online and enjoy saving queue hours for which they can use the free time with family members and friends.The holiday season is always the busiest for e-commerce and as compared to previous years, I can see strong growth in this sector this year. I will be among those shoppers who will take advantage of online shopping this festive season and enjoy some great deals and discounts on my online purchases. Overall, am getting more comfortable with the idea of shopping online. Apart from the convenience, deals sites like Groupon, for example, has somewhat encouraged me by offering better deals and who doesn’t want to save cash?

If am not buying online, I do deeply scrutinize what my peers say about a product especially when it comes to electronic gadgets and cloths.I do that because I highly regard the opinion of my peers. However, my experience with online shopping still disappoints in some areas that is not the case with physical shopping.For example,with online shopping I cannot touch or feel and even try on a product especially when it comes to shoes and clothing.However that is not a big problem as such as I experienced last year when a retailer responded to a problem I had by offering me refunds because the shoe delivered wasn’t a perfect fit for me. If you want to be an online shopper like me this festive season, kindly do not to forget about security and ensure to have a safe connection and don’t use the same password you use for other online services like email, ITunes accounts etc. That way, you will minimize the risk of becoming a victim of cybercrime this way.
