If you sell anything online, it’s imperative for you to understand why people shop and ultimately purchase online. This kind of information can go a long way toward helping you design your sales pages, ads and more.

You might think that the reasons people give for buying online are all the same; primarily price. But you would be wrong. In fact price is far down the list. It’s a given that the online prices are usually lower, given that there is no visible overhead. Nevertheless, there are some very specific and sometimes surprising reasons people give for purchasing online.

So without further hoopla let’s have a look at 5 of the top reasons people buy online.

5 Top reasons why people buy online

They get a wider choice of goods – Shopping online offers a far greater choice when it comes to shopping. Most offline stores can’t carry every color, size and large quantities of each. Not so with a warehouse!

Social proof: reviews from other shoppers – People do care about what others think, particularly when it comes to parting with their cash for a product or service. They don’t want to be the first one to eat an oyster, as they say, and give sometimes unmerited trust to online reviews.

Time savings – These days all of us are crazy busy, and the thought of having to get in your car, head out to shop several stores to find the items you’re looking for at the right price and model is downright daunting. It’s is now far easier and time efficient to do it all online, and have it sent straight to your door rather than fighting traffic and burning gas.

Free shipping – One of the top reasons people offer for buying online is the ability to get free shipping. In many cases, it’s been demonstrated that free shipping trumps even a more lucrative price discount! Go figure!

Easy return process – Admit it, you might not like it. If one trip outside the house was too much, imagine how much you’ll hate two! Having a rock solid guarantee and easy return process is a major factor for people choosing to buy online.
