Many people still believe that buy online has drawbacks with respect to go to a physical store. Others have been used both to buy online, without realizing they are doing it wrong. We offer a guide so that we can make better purchases, and get cheaper prices.
A return date
No one decides how much money is going to spend and which product to buy without first seeing what is more or less in the market. Without many details, go and search for the product you want to buy on the Internet. This will help you to get an idea of the different models that there are prices that have, and you’ll know if it’s something that you can’t afford or not. As an example, let’s say a sports watch with heart rate monitor. If you take the idea of spending less than 10 euros in a clock, then quickly you’ll notice that not can afford it. If your budget is larger, you will also know in what price range they move those watches. This first step should help you get an idea. It is useful to choose a shop which generally have products of that kind and which is also famous. In the case of the watch, it could be good to go to the website of a well known chain of sports shopping centers in Spain. In any case, we can always resort to Amazon, which usually has a large catalog of products.
Once you have a more or less generic view of that product, then play to investigate. To do this, start locating the product that you most will go with your budget at first glance. Then locate two or three products that have a higher price, and two or three products that have a lower price. Compare the features and trying to determine the motives for those who have a different price. It may be simply by brand, by the materials used, because they are in season, or because they have better characteristics. Investigates to what they serve such extras that have the most expensive, and also for what to serve the features that the product you have chosen and have them that are cheaper. In the case of the watch with heart rate monitor, we’ll realize that measure only keystrokes as well as, some with encoded, so that they will not suffer interference. There is also that connect to the smartphone, or that US data as the altitude in which we find ourselves, as well as some who are able to give us more data on screen than others.
Select the features you want
Once you’ve done an investigation, now yes you will have a complete plan of what there is on the market. You know the product you want to buy and why want you to buy. This is something that only you have on the Internet. In a physical store, do not have the opportunity to investigate, and the only thing which counts is the advice or recommendations of the seller, that could be influenced by the need to sell a particular product, is more or less interesting for you. Researching has led you to know precisely what they want to buy. Without it, you could have opted for a cheaper product, which after a few months, already does not have the required characteristics. Returning to the example of the watch with heart rate monitor, if you buy the cheaper, be possible that within a few weeks, you go to the gym and do not work well, because you have interference with other watches or other machinery. Without having investigated, is had not known that there were coded watches, and what they served. The result would have been finished with a watch useless, having to buy another coded. Investigate allows us to guess when to buy.
Select a product
Now we know what features must have the product we buy. The next step is to choose it. To do this, the best is go to one or two of the stores that have a wide catalogue of this product, and then locate exactly where we want to buy. This process could take us awhile, having to decide whether it is better spend a little more for a better product, or if we are satisfied with a little less. Out of these latest doubt, we can then go to Internet and trying to find comparative among those with which we have doubts. We can also go to specialized websites and see if they have assigned scores to these products. Once that is done, we read the views of some who have bought it, forums, both in the comments section of stores like Amazon. This will allow us to learn more about that specific product, and perhaps to dismiss it if we had doubts, or choose it definitively. Once chosen, you could make the greatest mistake.
Find it more cheap
Many times it occurs. We have entered 18 times to the same store to compare opinions and data of different products, and when we finally chose one, is to buy, and pay. This is one of the biggest mistakes. We have both been in that store, which we have already assumed that it is the price we are going to spend. But Internet sometimes allows us to get some products at prices that we didn’t expect. Once we know exactly the product we want, then we have to look at other stores, even though we think we have the most inexpensive. If we were in Amazon Spain, we can try stores Amazon Germany, Italy, France or United Kingdom, for example. We could also seek in any specialized store. And how not, never forget to search for product we want to + cheap, or purchase we want to, because they may be results in the Finder of stores that we didn’t know, and some of them could have very low prices.
Search for coupons
When you’ve already arrived at the store that has this product cheaper, should you not stay there, you should try to go beyond. Many stores offer discount coupons for their fans on Facebook, or for those who are subscribed to your newsletter. It is not bad idea to perform a search for discount coupons for this store on Google. We cannot know if they tend to have these codes if a box where we can put a coupon code when trying to make the payment. It could be a way to save 5%, or 10%, or shipping of the product.
Purchase very safely
There is no worst purchase than that in which the money is spent, but the product is not received. The last thing we want is us to cheat. There is panic, people aren’t worse online than in reality. However, as we can buy from our city to the other part of the world thanks to the Internet, also we can trick from the other side of the world. When we go to buy, make sure that the payment gateway is safe, and that sail in pages https:// and not http://, in the time of the payment. On the other hand, we can find Online Trust seals on the web. And all this without forgetting to look for reviews on this store. A large number of opinions, assures us that there are many users who have purchased without apparent problems. Finally, if the difference in price between a small store and Amazon is low, we elect by Amazon, or any other that let us know that it gives us guarantees, because the price difference is not worth. Above all, avoid expenditure very large stores that we do not trust fully. If we want to buy a TV in a store online, and don’t trust too much in it, perhaps it would be good to buy a product from few euros, to know if he comes home. Expenditure will not be very large, and we will make sure that the store works and is not a hoax.
Buy online can be very useful, and often much cheaper to buy in a physical store. Moreover, in the majority of cases, you can get cheaper products, and in many cases, you can get price differences of up to 50%, thanks to deals that only occur in certain shops that we can not get from our city. Following these 7 steps we can be sure we receive products at best price, and that we will be doing best buys.
