Amazon, Linio, eBay … Do you know what are the best places to shop online?
Online shopping is becoming an increasingly common activity and is starting to replace traditional shopping in stores and malls. The reason is that online stores are a very comfortable and practical option, since you can buy at anytime and anywhere that has an Internet connection.
When doing your shopping online you also have a greater number of options at your disposal than you could have in a physical store.
But among so many options, it can be difficult to decide where to shop.
To help you filter your options, we’ve compiled a list of the best online stores where you can find great products … and great deals too!
Amazon was one of the first major companies to start selling goods online. Currently, this company has independent websites for 15 countries, including Mexico.
In its early days Amazon focused exclusively on selling books, but currently this site offers a wide variety of products such as video games, clothing, electronic items, food, furniture, etc.
eBay was created in 1995 as an online product auction site. On this site, transactions are made directly between seller and buyer. The company is not directly involved in the deal.
Currently on eBay you can find 3 forms of purchase:
-Auction: The seller sets a starting price and a specified duration for the auction. During this period the buyers make their offers and in the end the highest payer takes the product.
-Buy it now: The seller sets a fixed price for the product.
-Classified ad: In this type of ads (similar to those that appear in the newspaper) the characteristics of the product and its price are published.
One of the advantages of this site is that you can find many unique and collectible items. We only recommend that you are selective when choosing the seller and make sure that your payment method has eBay “buyer protection”.
This site was founded in 2010 with the mission of connecting Chinese manufacturers with private buyers.
The great advantage of this site is that since you are buying directly from the manufacturers, you can find products at very low costs.
In AliExpress you can find a large selection of clothing, telephone, computer, jewelry, accessories, and others.
Linio is the largest online store in Latin America. It has operations in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Venezuela and also in Mexico since 2012.
One of the advantages of this site is that it offers many payment options and facilities, including the option to pay when your order arrives.
5. Mercado Libre
Mercado Libre is a site dedicated to facilitating purchases among users registered with its service. Users can sell new as well as used products at a set fixed price.
The peculiarity of this site is that the sellers are very diverse, from small companies, producers, manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers to private sellers.
As you can see, the Internet offers many shopping options that can be adapted to your specific needs and tastes.
