This is the very first thing that you will hear from the people who react to online shopping. If you question them, they will tell you numerous reasons without even taking a breath! “The quality and quantity, size, material, everything makes me worry about online shopping” retorts a commoner.

#2- “The Companies Give Out Defective Products in Online Sites”

They are all happy and satisfied customers and this is the reason the numbers are increasing by leaps and bounds.

#3- “A Photograph Doesn’t Tell the Whole Story”

giphy-2You must be giggling by now if you are an ardent online shopper, and your father happens to be a strict businessman! Yes, your dad will always be out there to warn you for every bad step that you take (if he thinks so).

He will try and convince you about the incorrect delivery of the products that have the most fanciful photos. Because, he believes that a photograph is not enough to judge a product.

#4- “There Is Nothing but Fancy Clothes and Shoes in the Internet”

giphy -3Who told you that? Search for any kind of baby product, and you are bound to get them if you search for a renowned site. Or, go for the skin care products, or even groceries; everything is available out there. All you need to do is SEARCH.

#5- “Buying Babies’ Clothes Online Before They Are Born Is a Bad Omen”

giphy - 4Hey there all the pregnant women! Please pay a deaf ear to these myths. We understand your incompetence of not going out to shop for your unborn; when this is the only thing you wish to do. New born baby needs to look their best, and online serves the purpose.

#6- “How Would You Know If That Cloth Is Going To Pass Through The Head Of Your Baby?”

giphy - 5How would you judge that even if you are shopping in the super markets? Will you make your baby try all the clothes? At times, you just head out alone, without your baby to shop for it, what would you do then? The situation is similar to this.

And also, any company that deals with baby products online will have an exact measurement that will fit any average baby, so you don’t need to cringe on that note.

#7- “Only Youngsters Are Online Addicted”

giphy -6Well, that myth needs to be checked. In a recent statistics it was shown that 23% of online shoppers fall between the ages of 35 and 44, and 24% of online shoppers are between the ages of 45 to 54. So now you know who shops the most and at what age!
