Benefits of Shopping online in Kenya
Shopping online in Kenya comes with convenience. E-commerce websites are always available 24 hours a day and as long as you can access the internet you can shop any time. Then again before you shop, you can click on a product and view its reviews by other customers. Reviews assist the client to make a decision on whether the product is worth buying or not.
The major disadvantage of shopping online is delivery of wrong products. When buying products online, the item may not be in good condition, it may have defects, or it might not be the same product pictured in the online store.
