Yes, you heard it right! “Online sites are helping the shoppers to make more informed choices” is one of the comments of an addicted online consumer. Apart from the joy that one gets at the arrival of their products, the detailed description of the product indeed helps the consumers make the best choice.

After all, if a person gets all that he needs from one source and that too sitting at the comfort of his own house, why will he even think of hopping around the market? Be it online shopping for baby cloths  or buying groceries, you would get it all in this technical world, which has got a solution to every problem in a just a right click of the mouse.

The Online Impact In The Cities:

The advent of online shopping in the country, New Delhi which has taken the lead in online shopping, or Mumbai which is the second leading city, the online industry has marked a steep rise of 117% in their business, as surveyed by the Economic Times.

Startled already? This is the reason why you see so many delivery boys hopping from here to there with their labeled bags.

The Exceptions:

But there are exceptions as well. You will see few people complaining and getting outraged at the influence of the online markets. And, to support them there are few myths that hover in the society.

So, here are the misconceptions that are making the people sit away from the online sites.

#1- “The Product Will Not Be Satisfactory”

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.

To solve this issue, go by the labels and their brand name and read the description of the product thoroughly. And, even if you have any complains the easy return and exchange policies make the transaction all the more comfortable and easy. They will give you the exact product at the relaxation of your home.

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

giphyAnother common saying! Do you really think so? If this was the case, don’t you think the 100 million customers wouldn’t have lodged a complaint by now? Just think about that!

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!

To conclude, all the statistics prove that online transactions are very easy and can be chosen over the hassles of going out in the market and standing in queues to get your desired product.

Hey, parents! Did anyone tell you that baby care is a 24X7 job?

Yes, you have to keep on monitoring your little one constantly. There’s no missing a wink. From the basic feeding needs to nursing requirements, fun activities to clothing, giggles to cries, – you have to bear the entire responsibilities arduously.

But, how do you do it with the pacing and choking urbanisation happening all around? Aren’t stay-at-home parents a rare specimen these days? So, how do you put up with work pressure and time constraints? The worst nightmare – how do you purchase necessary stuff for your kids without falling prey to the chewy traffic, long queues, and tiring crowd?

Online shopping is the answer!

Yes, things have eased up so much with the advent of baby care products online. Because parents aren’t living under a rock these days, and there has been much technological advancement, these items are now accessible with the click of a button. Shopping behaviour has changed big time.

What sells on the Internet is a big plethora! From diapers to toys, clothes to school supplies, the variety is huge and wonderful. Your choicest brand available without you having to go out and make the purchase from a brick-and-mortar is a pure bliss. What’s more, you can have it delivered at your doorsteps as well.

More benefits! Isn’t the World Wide Web a large platform for discussing things? And, when the talk is about eCommerce, how can we miss out on product reviews? Yes, these speciality platforms also let the buyers review products. That makes them out-and-out trustworthy. You can purchase any item without having to think twice.

The payment modes are diverse. Parents can go for Cash on Delivery, Net banking, EMI and what not! Dare to go with a newborn to a shopping mall? Dare to put up with the fuss? Not a chance. And this is why parents prefer online shopping for kids in India more.

It’s a different level of shopping experience altogether.

Why? Well, here’s why –

  • Who goes on product hunting? Check categories and find your pick.
  • Who doesn’t love a price slash?
  • Easy returns. Don’t like an item? No fretting. Just return it.
  • Let the item come to you rather than you going to it.
  • Some items, we tell you, even malls cannot provide!
  • Sit back and order. Can you do it in a physical store? Guess, no.

It’s the coolest trend.

Did you know that baby care is one of the most researched categories that have an impact on the buyer’s decision to make a purchase? Yes, of the total percentage, this category holds a whopping 69% in the pie chart. There’s more surprise! One in every five e-shoppers in the country chooses products from this category.

Working parents believe that they can juggle their work life better with family when they opt for eCommerce. In short, this is the trend. Where are you?
