You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’s never been disappointed by an online shopping experience. Sometimes the dress you ordered shows up black and blue when it was clearly white and gold in the picture, the lenticular poster of the Borg ship is an odd shape for framing, or worse – the item you ordered never showed up at all – and your credit card amassed fifteen new charges from random stores in Tokyo. With one click, what was supposed to be a great new gift for your beloved’s birthday became heartache, sorrow, gnashed teeth, and a lot of calls to your financial institution and the credit bureaus.
Not every online shopping experience has to lead to disappointment. After all, there are plenty of times online shopping is the best option to get what you need. You can still shop online, just make sure to shop smartly!
