The winner in the never-ending battle between small neighbourhood shops and big retail chains is online shopping. Online sales in Sri Lanka offer everything you need from healthcare, electronics and clothes to jewellery and home appliances. Below are some of the reasons why you should opt to shop online.

01. Give me my pillow and snacks!

What’s the biggest perk you ask? It’s the convenience. You can shop online from the comfort of your own home, and there is no place like home. Shop at midnight while in your PJ’s; there are no lines to wait in and you can do your shopping in minutes!

02. Need a nap?

You can roll over and get the deserved sleep you need when you are done. Most people are put off by shopping because they just don’t seem to have the time to explore stores and browse through all the products and items on offer. They also can’t be bothered with dealing with the hassle of having to go all the way to a store and physically rummage through everything on sale.

03. That’s too easy.

There is no walking required. The ONLY exercise happening is your finger hitting the mouse pointer on the check-out button. Online shopping sites such as Clicknshop offer free delivery to certain areas but many virtual markets deliver for an additional cost. This delivery charge is often much cheaper than the cost of having to drive up to the store and then drive back.

04. Egg cup? Teacup or world cup?

Shopping for clothes can be stressful for a lot of reasons. You don’t have to try on a bunch of clothes in a room with lighting that makes you want to diet. Online shopping is also best for discreet purchases. Ever gone lingerie shopping and felt judgmental salesmen following you? Asking you what styles and size you are looking for? Now, no more of that!
