Buying sportswear online is an increasingly common practice. The Observador Cetelem Ecommerce 2019 study proves that Portuguese consumers spend, on average, 606 euros on purchases made via the internet . However, we know that there are some issues surrounding this practice that concern customers.
When visiting a physical store , people have the opportunity to evaluate factors related to the product that they cannot access through an online store. They can try it on , see which model or size suits them best or understand exactly what material the product is made of.
In an online store , however, users gain time and comfort. They can purchase their favorite products without leaving the sofa and receive them in a few days at their home or workplace . This eliminates the need for afternoons spent in shopping centers and long minutes waiting at checkout counters in stores.
It is true that buying sportswear online requires a high level of trust regarding product quality standards , as well as correct and efficient delivery. Therefore, in this article, we give you some advice to buy safely , without your expectations being disappointed.
How to buy sportswear online with confidence?
To buy sportswear online with confidence, contact the brand and clarify all your doubts. Ask the company about the sizes or fabrics used in the products to make sure you choose the most suitable item for you.
Visit the brand's website and understand how it can be contacted. Do you only provide one email address ? Or do you still have telephone contact or live chat ? The greater the ease of contact, the greater the security perceived by users.
Likewise, choose an online sportswear store with well-defined and public shipping, delivery and returns policies , as well as explicit terms and conditions .
