Also check offline offers and prices before shopping online
Many offers are given in the online and offline market regarding Navratri and Diwali. These offers include many products including phones, electronics, home appliances, gadgets, accessories, fashion wear. However, it is not necessary that the offers on online shopping are always beneficial. Experts also say that offline shopping is better.
1-Ratan Kumar Jain, associated with Delhi Yarn Merchant Association (DYMA), says that customers have to roam many shops to buy from the market. It consumes both time and petrol, whereas during online shopping, this work is done in a few minutes. The big advantage of shopping from the market is that the product the customer is buying is in front of him. For example, while buying a cloth, he is able to see both its quality and size. You can also try and see the clothes. This is not the case online. There are many online products that are not available by searching offline. Because of this, most of the customers go towards online shopping.
2-Omprakash Gupta, associated with the Madhya Pradesh Electric Merchants and Contractors Association, says that when buying a product from the offline market, the shopkeeper is responsible for that product. For example, if there is any defect or other deficiency in it, then it should be removed by hand. Customers who shop online do not get this kind of service. As far as online price is concerned, it can be low on select products, other products always cost more. However, many times the customers do not even try to know the price in the market.
3-Anshul Bansal, Honor of Mangalam Electronics, which sells electronics products, says that the product purchased through online shopping is original, it is not always safe. It can be a first copy or even a gray market product. Such customers who buy products online are not able to check that the product they are buying is correct. When such a product requires warranty, the customer comes to know that it is original and has to worry. Many times the old or second hand product is sold to the customer.
