One Simple Question

Today’s blog is with a mere purpose of talking and getting to know your perspective, as a result I am going to ask everyone a simple question.

I am pretty sure all of you would love talking about it, so my question for you all is;

What is your thinking process when you buy a product online?

If you are anything like me, then I know it for real that you would enjoy talking about online shopping, making this post a fun and no-brainer πŸ˜„

I hope this question is thought-provoking for you all and everyone enjoy answering it.

Looking forward for your answers πŸ˜‰βœŒοΈ

Have a beautiful day!!

  1. Being of a certain age, I prefer to physically hold a product in my hands before buying. Online it is so very easy to shop but I’m afraid I still prefer human interaction! πŸ™

    1. Ahhh, that’s a valid point, human interaction these days has become very rare, especially because of the pandemic.

    1. True, frauds have increased and it is really hard to know, which source is valid

  2. I don’t real shop, I’m a list person, in and out as quickly as possible and I’m the same online. If I need something I find it and buy it as quickly as possible, what does take a lot of time is the deciding that I actually need it.

    1. That’s an efficient approach, indeedπŸ˜„
      My approach is kind of similar, just a bit more time consuming, because I spend a lot of time looking for the same product πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

  3. I shop on line when I can’t find something locally, especially from a local small business. I don’t like using Amazon, etc., but sometimes I simply cannot find what I want here in Vermont. For books, I use my independent bookseller on the Square here in town, and she can often order in a book faster than I can get it shipped from Amazon! If not, there is on-line indie booksellers that will direct you to a local shop.

  4. My thinking process is: β€œDo I really need it?” Well, it starts out that way but I’m not always successful buying just what I need (Do it most of the time, though!).

    1. Same, mostly I buy online only if I am convinced that I want a particular product, mind less scrolling isn’t my cup of tea either πŸ˜„

  5. Still not easy for me to buy online! I like to see products in real.
    But I do it from time to time of course and I like when I can read what other people thought about the product. When results are good I am more keen to buy but when returns are bad I think about it twice!

  6. I (Kellye) do scroll all the options then I put the one I think I want in my cart so I don’t lose it. I will usually read the reviews, and if they’re good, I click to buy. I tend to be an impulse buyer in stores and do most of my shopping online.

  7. Hi Butterfly. I’m sorry I’ve been absent from your blog for a few days. I’ve had a couple of, shall we say, eventful days with everything breaking down on me. At least, I wasn’t the one breaking down – almost, but not quite. I finally wrote about it last night after having a tough day. I can see the funny side of it now, though.

    Back to you, online shopping – yes, I do shop that way a lot, mainly because, being disabled, it’s not easy for me to get out, and if I can, I can’t carry much back on my wheelchair. So, online shopping is invaluable to me. I hate using Amazon because of the way they treat their staff and their somewhat lacking morals. However, I don’t always have the choice if it’s something large or if I can’t get it locally. I usually know what I need and go straight to it on the website, but I also get distracted by other goods. I don’t always resist the temptation either; then, I have to send things back, which is more complicated than ordering in the first place. Am I making any sense here? I don’t think I am. Sorry, if not, it’s been a stressful couple of days. I’ll try and keep up with your posts now I’m back on track. Take care, Butterfly. Ellie 🌞 Xx

    1. Hey, it’s okay…I read your post…I can understandπŸ˜‰

      You are making sense πŸ’―
      Honestly, sometimes I feel amazon is a bit too overrated, but then again I do need it due to lack of good options…though I would be more than happy to shop from another website ykπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

      1. I accumulated too much stuff when I was young, e.g., I have enough clothes to last me until I die. I only buy books online. Hard to mess up those transactions.

    1. That is something we all should look for, true, but you wouldn’t know unless and until you order…maybe you should order something cheap…you raise your confidence you know?

  8. I like to buy things I cannot carry, I don’t have a car, so online shopping for me is ease of getting what I need, tend to buy lot of intangible good, like software, or large items, computers, equipment, an exception is basic clothing, and grocery…I hate shopping πŸ™‚ can’t stand wading through alleys, strolling through mass of peoples…I am social but not for shopping πŸ˜€ When buying online I tried to take into account where it does come from, cost, and quality especially for more technical stuff, usually I kind of know what I want, of course I have to rely on specs and hope nothing is ‘hided’ or half truth…not a lie but not entirely true either πŸ™‚ In short I find it is an easier way for me, did not try buying art supplies online, but it should be fine, I know pretty well all the goods and I know what I am using, there always a bit of place for experimenting, but either online or physical, there always the need to try and decide if it was worthed.

    1. That’s great, you know online shopping really solves a lot of problems with ease.

      I usually don’t really read everything, but enough to be assure of it’s authenticity.

      Same I think I am pretty social l, however, definitely a hard core introvert when it comes to shopping πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. When I buy something online I do it because I need it or because I can’t get it anywhere in my little town πŸ€ͺ. It’s just more efficient that way than driving!

  10. Good day, Butterfly!
    I buy online according to my needs and if I can’t find the product locally, then I go to online. I also consider the quality of the product together with its price and shipping fee😁

  11. We do a lot of our grocery shopping through Walmart delivery, but I like to choose some of our meat, fresh fruit, and vegetables myself in a grocery store. We have Amazon Prime and do a lot of shopping on Amazon, but some clothing needs to be tried on in a store.

    This is a very timely question. When I was younger, I used to enjoy shopping in person, but online shopping saves a lot of my limited energy now. On the other hand, it would be sad to see actual stores disappear.

  12. Ugh. I don’t like shopping at the best of times. I prefer to buy in person if I can because I have to try on clothes. Gear I can buy online. My hubby buys all kinds of cycling parts and electronics online.

  13. Hi, Butterfly, interesting prompt! Before I buy online, I make sure the site is secure & I consider what kinds of companies might buy my info from the retailer to bombard me with emails afterwards! Oh, and I try to get free shipping if possible. I’d rather do all my shopping locally, due to the packaging & energy needed for delivery of online products, but some things I cannot get from other sources. I do hate to see brick and mortar shops disappearing, though. How about you? 🌞

    1. I mostly do online shopping from amazon so I don’t really worry about email spam or about my privacy for that matter, and as far as local shops are considered…honestly I believe that local shops could benefit a lot from coming online…as a matter of fact it might just save them some rental money πŸ’·
