Shopping via online portals is something still very new in Pakistan. One of the more familiar names in this industry is online marketplace giant, Daraz.pk, has garnered nationwide attention by achieving the country’s very first one billion rupees in sales during their Black Friday sale back in 2016. This proves that shopping online works here, although unfortunately it is growing at a slow pace. Now, online shopping is known to be more cost-efficient compared to traditional offline shopping but many still don’t see how it is so. Here are 4 Mantras for Online Shopping Pros in Pakistan, as told by a pro.
Never Forget Discount Codes
First and foremost, always search for discount codes. These codes give you additional discounts which help you save so much more when you shop online. How? We recommend you visit and bookmark ShopCoupons for future use. They provide shoppers like you with the latest voucher codes to be used at your favorite online stores like Daraz, Yayvo, Careem and more. Take note that these promo codes should be absolutely free-of-charge, which mean that you do not have to pay to acquire and use a code. You can even save a coupon code to be used for later. Say you found an attractive Daraz discount code, just click “save it” and you’ll be able to find it in your account for later use.
Shop during Big Sales Seasons
It is during big sales seasons like Eid and Black Friday when you gain access to mega sales and the best deals around. In other countries where online shopping is the norm, big online stores even have anniversary sales which sales event surpass all other sales campaigns! As mentioned earlier, Daraz broke records by making the country’s first one billion rupees in sales and this was during their Black Friday campaign. Because Black Friday did so well last year, there will definitely be more online stores following suit giving shoppers loads of good deals and promotions such as 1-for-1 deals, gift-with-purchase promos, free shipping, flash sales, giveaways and more.
Use Payment Partners or Bank Cards
Renowned web-stores frequently encourage the use of payment via payment providers like Jazzcash and Easypay. During special occasions, shoppers get to enjoy extra discounts of up to 10% if payment is made via these payment partners. These payment partners even allow you to transfer money to bank accounts and payment partner accounts of the same brand. For now, partnership between banks and online stores are not common but are around. Daraz, for example, offers extra discounts of up to 20% when shoppers pay with selected bank cards on selected days.
Do Not Rush into a Decision
Do you know that rush of excitement you get when you’re on a shopping spree at the mall? Well, we get that rush of excitement too when shopping online. Sometimes, we get so caught up with our excitement that we rush into making the purchase, and sometimes it is not always the best decision. Online shopping pros often take their time comparing prices across other shopping portals to make sure that they purchase the right product at a reasonable price. Don’t worry too much about the product selling out either because if it does, it usually gets restocked pretty fast provided it’s a hot-selling item. So keep calm and shop wisely!
