How to do Online Shopping – the Easy and Fast Way!

In this time and age, online shopping is one of our most convenient ways to do shopping. There are still some people who go out of their way to the mall for their needs and necessities but most people whether in their teen years or young and mature adults make their purchases online.

How to Do Online shopping

It’s fast, easy and super convenient. It’s so effective that most food chains nowadays even have put up their website for online transaction and deliveries!

Then again, just because its convenient would mean it would be always 100% safe. You need to be smart as it’s not all wine and roses when it comes to online shopping. You need to make sure you doing your research for a safe and secured transaction when doing online shopping. Let me share you some guidelines you need to check and reconsider when doing online shopping:


1. Stick to Well-Known Online Shops and Brands with Strong Reputation

Especially when you are new with online shopping, the safest way is to start making your purchases in well-known online shops and brands. Everybody knows about them and they are popular and known for a reason. They are in the business long enough – people trust in them and this is why they still exist for a lot of years. Whether you pay by cash or credit card – you’d feel much safer because you know the brand, everyone buys from them and you know you know you will be getting what you have paid for with no problems at all.

There are a lot of well-known online shops like Zalora, Lazada Philippines, Amazon and many more. You could always go directly to the website of the specific brand you choose – most of them do online transaction for their products, too!

2. Do a Research before Purchasing! Check Reviews!

It’s always so important to do a research on the product you are wanting to purchase and checking how legit the seller or online shop you are interested in. One of the most convenient way is to Google it. Google gathers a lot of information from different people and as they say, words of mouth never lie. There are various online communities both for praises and complains from specific products and online shops – they are your key and guide with your online shopping experience. After all, there are online shops that actually scams you with money – so buying without any research can actually do more harm than good to you.

3. If all Else Fails, Make sure they have a Paypal Payment System!

Almost every online shops has a Paypal payment system on their website. When you make a purchase with Paypal – you are mostly guaranteed to get your money back when problems arises. Problems like not receiving the product you paid for or getting a defective product, etc are things that Paypal takes seriously and you can put a dispute to claim when it happens. It will make you feel safe purchasing online because you know, if there is anything sketchy going on like fraud or scam.. Paypal will have your back and will help you to get your money back. So it’s always so important to check if they have a Paypal system.


One of the few things I find convenient when doing online shopping is the fact there are a lot of deals to make your shopping experience cheaper just like when you have a Zalora Voucher – you can use that in making purchases online that may lessen the amount you actually need to pay for. There are websites like Paylesser who offers coupons and voucher to their affiliated online shops like Sephora, Zalora, Lazada, Agoda and many more well-known online sites. You can use them as your start-up base in online shopping as they have a list of trusted online shopping sites to go regardless of what your needs are – another way to make your shopping experience more easy, safe and secured!

And now, you can get the same deals online than going out and fighting the lines :)

    I believe that everyone should research a company for they buy any item from them. I always like to make sure that there security SSL is up-to-date and for an added safety, if they allow you to check out with paypal.

  12. Paypal is my favourite tool for online shopping. It gives me a complete record of what I have spent and they are very easy to work with if you should be double charged (its happened!)

  13. As a working of mom of two little boys, I don’t know what I would do without online shopping. Your tips are spot on. I also like to leave things in my online cart and wait for them to send me coupons and discount codes.

  14. I live outside of town and it is quite a driving distance for me to get to some of the more well known shops. It is just so much easier for me to shop online. I tend to stick to the more well known ones. But with PayPal and credit cards purchases are protected so that helps.

  15. Such a good thing to remember when shopping online- sticking to trusted sites! I do a lot of online shopping, and I needed a bit of a reminder.

  16. I shop online a lot. I just started doing a lot of my grocery shopping online too! Once a store in our area does grocery pickup I will be doing that too! lol. I love saving time and having more time to spend with my family and with winter coming last thing I want to do is leave the house.

  17. I’d like to think that I am an expert online shopper…and I already follow most of these tips! My favourite online stores to shop at are Abercrombie, Banana Republis, and Yoox!

  25. Great tips! Paypal is so convenient. I do most of my purchases online these days and Paypal is my go-to payment system.

  26. I’ve been with PayPal since almost the start and have yet to have a problem with them. One thing with the tips though, is you have to take online research with a grain of salt, it’s been my experience that hte ones most likely to post a review are the ones least happy with their purchase!
