Online t-shirt shopping is becoming more popular with the masive surge in internet usage in Ireland. Not least because you can find nearly everything else on the Web, why not find your ideal t shirts too? And because online t-shirt shopping is so convenient, it only makes sense to start and finish your tee shopping there. Here’s what you need to know about shopping for your t-shirt online, getting what you what, and being safe along the way.
Know what sort of t shirt you want
Too often, online t-shirt shopping (as well as any kind of shopping) can be a miserable experience when you don’t know that you want. Whether you are simply shopping without a purpose or you really don’t know what you want, this is going to make for a frustrating online shopping trip. To really be successful in finding your dream t shirt online, you need to come up with a basic idea of what you want and what you don’t want. This would include the style of tshirt, the colour, the kinds of material, and the general look you are seeking [e.g. cool, trendy, sporty, high fashion, chic/fitted, loose/casual] and of course the sizes you want. A good start is half the battle, know roughly what sort of shirt you want before you start browsing and you are already half way there !
Searching for the tee you want
Once you have a rough idea of what you want from your online t-shirt shopping trip, you will also want to figure out how to find that tees you want on the Web. Unlike looking through racks of clothing, online shopping is far different. You need to be able to successfully utilize a web browser to your advantage. Using one of the larger search engines is advisable as they will link you up with far more stores than other engines may. Type in the descriptive phrases that you associate with your desired t-shirt (i.e. style, theme, etc;) [e.g. casual sports tshirts] and then look through the search results.
Comparing the shirts you find
When online t-shirt shopping, one of the distinct advantages over regular shopping is your ability to compare what you find before you buy. With the new multi-tabbed browsers like Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2, you can have multiple shopping pages open to look at or you can shop one site at a time, bookmarking those that seem to be potential ‘winners’ in terms of offering you what you need. You may also want to print out the pictures you find during online t-shirt shopping to help you make your final choice.
Shopping online for t-shirts safely
Throughout all of this online t-shirt shopping, you also need to be safe in terms of where you buy from. It is totally normal to use a credit card to make your online tee shirt purchases, but if you are not an experienced online shopper this can make some people slightly concerned about giving their card details over the web. If an online t-shirt store asks you to type in your credit card details, be sure to check your browser for a little padlock which indicates that the page is secured using a security lock feature. Usually the padlock appears in the either the browser address bar [where u type in www. etc] or in the bottom right of the browser. If you cannot see the padlock when being asked to enter the credit card details, it is recommended that you don’t enter your credit card details, either call the online store’s customer care telephone/order line and/or email them to ask about how your transaction is secured.
Another great way to ensure your financial information is secured is to signup with a secure payment like Paypal which allows you to enter your financial details securely only once and when paying a merchant with Paypal they never see your credit card number it is all handled securely in the background by Paypal.
