There are occasions when there isn’t enough time or the thought of going through traffic and crowds in shopping malls puts you off the idea of shopping: Hence why online shopping has become so popular. Online shopping sites have filled the gap for many who simply don’t enjoy the whole shopping experience and would like to make their purchases quickly and effortlessly. Without overheads, online stores are also able to offer items at much cheaper prices than regular stores.


Usually, discounts and prices offered by these sites are the main attraction for shoppers. However, one must not forget that the shipping fee can be pricey (especially for bulky items and overseas purchases). But many online stores have now realised that offering free or subsidised shipping helps create customer loyalty, and puts them ahead of the competition. This comes at a smaller cost than most think thanks to bulk and frequent customer discounts given by courier companies and the postal service.

Furthermore, even if they are not, negotiating with them might change their mind into waiving the shipping fee for you.


10. Foodworld

Even the food industry has taken the step into online businesses, this is not a food delivery like McDonald’s or Pizza Hut but instead, Foodworld delivers your groceries to you. This helps save time for working mothers, students living alone or for bachelor/bachelorettes.
