▲ ▼ Personal advice for online shopping
Online shopping is great but often I miss the advice by a professional sales worker, especially on higher priced / more complex products.
Think anything electronics (smartphone, laptops, etc.) for example - before I buy something these days, I have to go through rigorous research before making any decision. Used to be easier where you would go into 2-3 stores and talked to the local sales rep.
Especially true for non technical people like me. In the end, I find myself reading some benchmark tests I have no idea what they mean.
That being said, you do get some advice at some online retailers but obviously only for products they have in store.
They don't compare it to other items and even if you have settled on one item, the price comparison only begins...
Interesting, I thought one of the best thing about eCommerce is not having to deal with lying sales people who try to sell what they have but not what's best to us.
I agree to some extent - especially for the cases where I am knowledgeable.
For those cases where I have no idea it would be great to have advice. I almost end up asking someone I know for a recommendation.
So you would need someone who is not only giving advice based on what's available in a single store but honest advice suited to the individual needs.
