This comparison of online versus in-store shopping for natural health and wellbeing products highlights some of the reasons why I now purchase almost all of these types of products online:
- The wellness products websites that I use have simple interfaces enabling me to start an order and slowly finish it over a few days during my commute to work (so that I am sure I have everything I need, and that I have stuck to my monthly budget). Now I mainly order using Apps downloaded onto my iPhone, which is even easier.
- The wellness products websites that I subscribe to provide so much information and have connected me to such a large community of like-minded people interested in health and wellness that I learned how to use natural products to sleep 8 hours again, and other noticeable health improvements, over quite a short period of time.
- After a bit of experience with online shopping, I have settled on wellness product websites that use Australia post for shipping. This means that I don't have to organise re-delivery of packages that arrive whilst I am at work; I just walk to my local post office for collection.
-I am able to order unique natural products and natural remedies that I have been unable to find in my local shops.
- By subscribing to special deals, or joining loyalty reward programs, I save money compared to shopping in-store. Wellness products websites often offer either free shipping or reimburse the full shipping-fee with store-credits.
Online wellness products websites can be really convenient, and the types of products rarely require returning. Whilst prices for many products tend to be cheaper than comparable products in the shops, shipping needs to be factored in. This can eat up any savings, but many wellness products websites offer spectacular deals and/or loyalty rewards programs that provide a lot of savings. They may also offer unique products that are not available, or hard to find, in shops.
