With more shops expanding their stores to the web, and online shopping on the increase, it’s hard not to feel left out. The fact is, what with work and kids and life in general, there simply isn’t time to go to the shops. When we do, it’s either a quick dash to grab some bread and milk, or it’s a chore so long put off that it takes up the entire Saturday morning with two screaming kids in the trolley.
What? Shop for myself? People do that?
You’d be Amazed at How Easy Online Shopping Is!
Here’s the beauty of shopping online – the shops never close! Put the kids in bed, curl up with a cup of coffee and your laptop, and there you go. All you need is a credit card for most sites, although a select few also accept debit cards, direct deposits and cash on delivery. There are also online payment sites such as PayPal, which make things much easier. All you need to sign up for a free PayPal account is an email address and your debit/credit card and bank details. All you do is enter your email address and password at the end of the purchase and it’s all sorted. You even earn card points off purchases!
Many shops have an online version (even PicknPay – yes, really) and shopping online is actually even easier than real life. All you need to do is select the items you want, add them to your “shopping cart” and pay via credit card. The delivery agreements differ between retailers, but for the most part, delivery of your items is always smooth and timeous.
Your One-Stop Platform for Online Shopping
I recently came across a fantastic website called dealafrica.co.za, and I feel I just have to share it with you. This site puts together all the specials that local online stores are offering, and sorts them into categories in one place. Before you buy anything, never forget to check dealafrica.co.za first, as one click could save you 50%-90% off the very item that you wish to buy.
