Things to Check Before Buying Clothes Online

Clothes are a necessary part of everyone’s wardrobe, and sometimes it’s just more convenient to buy them online. However, there are a few things you should always check before making a purchase. If you want to avoid disappointment with an online order, keep this advice in mind.

Delivery

One of the worst mistakes you can make when buying clothes online is not checking the delivery policy of the store. Some stores will only ship to certain countries, and others charge exorbitant shipping fees. Make sure you’re aware of the store’s delivery policy before you make a purchase – otherwise, you could be left paying more than expected (or waiting much longer than expected!).

Returns

What if the clothes you ordered don’t fit? Or what if you simply don’t like them once you see them in person? It’s important to know a store’s return policy before purchasing so that you can avoid any nasty surprises down the road. Some stores have very generous return policies, while others are much more strict. Do your research to make sure you’re comfortable with a store’s return policy before making a purchase.

Price

How much are you paying for the clothes you’re buying? It’s important to compare prices before making a purchase, especially when shopping online. With so many different retailers competing for your business, there’s sure to be a wide range of prices for the same product. Take the time to find the best deal before you buy.

Sizing

When clicking between pages and adding/subtracting items from the basket, it’s easy to forget what size you’re looking for or add the wrong size. Be sure to check the size chart before completing your purchase, and then check your basket again to ensure that all items are in the right size. That way, you can be confident that the right sizes will arrive when ordering new workout gear or maternity clothing from Legoe Heritage.

Environmental Policies

Depending on your preferences, you may want to buy from brands that have sustainable and ethical practices. These include using recycled materials, operating under fair trade conditions, or being carbon-neutral. To find out more about a brand’s environmental and ethical policies, do a quick Google search of the company name plus “sustainability” or “ethical practices.”

Overseas Shipping

If you’re based in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, or the US, you’ll probably be charged for overseas shipping if you buy from an international brand. However, many sites offer free shipping if you spend over a certain amount, so it’s worth checking the shipping conditions before you start shopping.

Website Security

For those ordering through a new website, it’s always worth checking that the site is secure before entering your credit card details. You can check this by looking for a padlock icon in the URL bar, or by looking for “HTTPS” at the beginning of the URL. If a website has these two things, it means that the site is secure and your personal information will be encrypted.

 

If you’re still in doubt, check the online reviews for the website before you make a purchase. There’s nothing wrong with being cautious when it comes to online shopping, and a little research can go a long way.

Look for Customer Support Information

Before you buy anything from a website, you should always check to see if there is a way to contact customer support. This is important in case you have any problems with your order; who will you call? How will you get in touch? Make sure the website has a customer support email address or telephone number listed somewhere on the site.
