As more and more e-commerce stores are popping up in Pakistan, online shopping is no longer considered a rare sight. In fact, purchasing items and goods online is as good (if not cheaper) as purchasing from brick-and-mortar retail outlets. Of course, everyone has their preferences and we aren’t saying that one is better than the other, however, online shopping does have its undeniable perks. Here are a few ways to make the most out of your online shopping spree you should take note of.
BIG SALE SEASONS
Patience is a virtue – and it comes in really useful when you have to wait for mega sale seasons. It’s during times like these where prices of goods being sold online don’t only drop down low, but there are also giveaways, flash sales and even games to encourage shoppers to visit their website. An online store well known for this is Daraz and it seems to be working well. Mega-sale seasons like Black Friday is when both online and offline retail stores offer the best bargains you probably won’t be able to come across any other time of the year.
SHOPPING TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS
Most online stores provide free shipping, but with a minimum spend. Most times we don’t actually need to buy up to the minimum amount but we still do just so that we can enjoy the free delivery. Encourage your friends to shop online with you especially during sale seasons so that all of you can enjoy the perks of free shipping without having to hurt your wallet.

Unlike a couple of years back, where you could only get the item you wanted at only one or two online stores, today there are plenty of store for you to choose from. It’s always a good idea to spend time browsing through websites and carrying out some research on the product you are planning to purchase. The product you see on Website A may seem cheap as compared to retail stores, but there may be better deals available on Website B or Website C.
The last and probably most important tip there is – coupon codes. A trusted website which provides such codes is Shopcoupons. You’ll be able to find working discount codes from your favorite online stores in Pakistan like Daraz, Yayvo and Khaadi to name a few. So what is this and how does it work? It’s simple. Just head over to ShopCoupons and search for the store of your choice. Select the voucher (maybe a 10% Daraz discount code) you would like to apply to your cart and voila – discount received! In case you’re wondering, yes, these promo codes are available at absolutely no charge.
Online shopping may seem tricky at the beginning but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be up and about in no time. Be a smart shopper and always keep these tips in mind!
