The internet has rapidly changed our way of life over the last few years in many ways. It’s simple to meet like-minded people and stay in touch with loved ones, travelling is made easier and all the information you need is only one click away. This also applies to shopping: last year’s statistics show that online retail sales worldwide have hit a total revenue of more than fifty billion dollars. The average online shopper spends about £1,500 on forty items a year and these numbers are increasing day by day. Here are some tips to get the most out of your money.
1. Always compare prices
Don’t buy the first thing you see, even if it’s something you really want to buy. If you do a quick internet search, there’s a high possibility you will find the same items being sold for cheaper elsewhere as sellers are constantly lowering their prices to stand out from the competition.
