Closet Voyage - Shopping online vs Shopping retail

Friday, 12 October, 2012

Shopping online is a way of life for me. So I can't help but feel a little bit defensive when my friends and readers tell me that they are still reluctant to shop online.
Online shopping means finding unique items that make people go 'omg where did you get that?!'; exclusively online bargains; the excitement of opening packages. What's there not to like about online shopping?
The number one excuse I hear about online shopping is shipping times. It seems that, for the ability to physically have what you want right there and then, many people will always prefer shopping locally, even if this means buying a little less unique, or paying a little bit more.
Well, online shopping skeptics, what would you say if I told you that waiting for shipping will soon be a thing of the past? No longer will delivery times state 'in 3-7 working days'. The new line will be SAME DAY. In fact, same day shipping is already here!
If you have ever shopped from sites like The Iconic, you might have had firsthand experience of this seemingly miraculous same day delivery service. Australia's WantItNow is the delivery service behind stores like The Iconic, and is leading the same day delivery movement.
