3 Reasons why Pakistanis avoid online shopping
Even though online shopping websites in Pakistan are a big hit, there’s still a huge majority that avoids online shopping like a plague. They still have a lot of reservations when it comes to online shopping in Pakistan. There are many reasons for their reservations and here a few of those reasons that are stopping people from trying online shopping in Pakistan.
- Household shopping
Household shopping is the tradition of Pakistan and we’re not the type of people that easily let go of our traditions. Especially with the rise of good supermarket places in Pakistan, people can’t seem to let go of personally shopping all their month’s worth of groceries. Shopping is sort of an activity out of their daily routine and is sort of an entertainment for the majority of people.
- Scams and Frauds
There have been a lot scams and frauds when it comes to online shopping in Pakistan. The sellers try to hide the flaws in their products or if the buyer has paid up front, the product turns out to be damaged or completely different from the one that was ordered.
- Lack of discounts
Only two to three online shopping sites offer discount to attract customers. The rest don’t understand the concept of driving traffic to their sites. The prices are too high for the majority of public and they can’t take the risk of buying expensive products online. Many foreign websites offer amazing discounts and enjoy loyal customers because of that.
