Online shopping has revolutionized the way we shop, offering convenience, variety, and competitive pricing right at our fingertips. However, with the abundance of options available, finding the best products can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack but fear not, as this blog post article will be unveiling some top best tips to help you navigate the digital aisles and discover the crème de la crème of products when shopping online. As usual, everything has its pros and cons and since online shopping has made it easy for people to get almost everything they need/want comfortably without leaving their homes/houses, at the same time it has its cons and just to mention but a few like;

  • Delayed deliveries.

  • Low quality products.

  • Receiving a diffrerent product from what you ordered.

In today's blog post article is a step by step guide and summary on how to "PERFECTLY" shop online without experiencing the above and even more issues. Also just to mention that despite using Jumia as the guide here, the same can be applied to most if not all online stores.

STEP 1 - Visit your preferable online store as seen from the below screenshot (which on my side is Jumia and assuming we will be purchasing a monitor) where on your right side of the store, you will see different categories of products while some stores you will have to click on a humburger menu for the different categories of products to pop up, then go to the COMPUTING category which in turn displays different sub-categories of products under computing, then go to where you see MONITORS (depending on which store you are using) and click on it so that it displays all the monitors available on the store.

STEP 2 - After going through STEP 1 (which should direct you to a page with desktop monitors as seen from the below screenshot);

Still on the right side of the page (which should now change) you will see a section of different filters that you can use to get the exact type of monitor you want but remember that we are trying to avoid the three and even more issues highlighted above before STEP 1, so the most important filters of all are both the PRODUCT RATING and SELLER SCORE whereby you should click the highest rating and score in order to get the best product from a trusted seller as seen from the screenshot below;

It is also noteworthy and evident from the first screenshot in STEP 2 that before filtering, there were 1,641 monitors but after filtering, the monitors reduced to 7 only which says a lot in terms of quality and trust as seen from the below screenshot;

STEP 3 - After going through STEP 1 and STEP 2, click on one of the products after filtering then the final and most important step of your shopping is to confirm the quality score, customer rating and the order fulfillment rate which are displayed on the right side of the product (ensure they all read EXCELLENT or at least GOOD) as seen from the below screenshot;
