Personal advice for online shopping

posted by crispin , 891 days ago , show insights

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...
