Your FYI Guide to Online Shopping

Scroll no further! 10 quick tips to better your online shopping experience here. You’re welcome 😉

  1. Know where your clothes are being shipped from.
    • Know as much about where your clothes are coming from. That can affect the sizing, shipping costs, shipping time, and return policy. I’d stick with the States as much as possible.
  2. Pay attention to shipping time.
    • No one wants to wait a month for a few t-shirts. More than likely you’re paying for shipping, so don’t waste your money and read so you get your clothes exactly when you want them.
  3. Look for coupons!
    • Don’t spend more than necessary. Googling e-coupons is definitely worth a shot.
  4. Like the store? Make an account.
    • If you think you’ll by clothes from that online store again, making an account saves your personal information, making it easier to purchase from them in the future. Some websites will even give you a discount on your first purchase if you sign up and will send you coupons and promotions.
  5. Watch where you leave your personal information.
    • Never save your credit card information to a website. Your address should be saved if you’ve made an account, but make sure your account is password protected.
  6. Size charts!
    • Almost all store websites will offer size charts, especially if your products are coming from overseas. Looking at charts and conversions will help reduce the possibility of having to do an online return, which is a whole other monster.
  7. Take advantage of deals!
    • Signing up for emails from your favorite stores so you can save money and buy more!
  8. Every website isn’t safe.
    • Read reviews and make sure you’re not being set up for a scam. It does happen, with Etsy accounts or personal carriers and overseas stores. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
  9. Be aware of return/sales policies.
    • READ! Fine print is important. In case you do have to return something you need to know about reshipping details, how long you have to return, when you can expect your money back, conditions, all of that.
  10. Reading reviews helps!
    • Don’t get scammed for lack of knowledge. Other people’s experiences can save you time, money, and energy.
