The Benefits Of Purchasing Books

Book-Reviews The trend of buying books online has be.e quite popular in recent times due to its increased convenience, security and cheaper rates as .pared to regular bookstores. In this article I will attempt to explain some of these benefits. They are as follows: Price: One of the main reasons why online book shopping being cheaper, is because online stores do not need to rent a large area to display their books. These books are instead stored in large warehouses whose rent is .paratively cheaper than prime shopping space in malls. In addition other costs such as the need to hire cashiers, security guards and costs of damaged books due to browsing are not present. Therefore it is these factors that facilitate such cost savings for online book shopping. University Students who have trouble affording books can also buy text books online at secondhand prices. Customers can usually expect a 20-30% discount on books purchased online. Convenience: Another major factor contributing to the success of online bookstores is convenience. When looking for any particular book online, simply enter the book title in the search box and if available, the book will be displayed on your monitor within seconds. One can even view prices, reviews, availability and other such information about the books they are interested in. All of this could be done in seconds online but in a regular bookstore you would need to spend time tilting while trying to read the titles off book spines. Even the cost of transport and time involved in travelling to regular book stores is saved. While online bookstores charge you for shipping fee, most waive these charges if you purchase a minimum number of books or if you hit certain book purchase value. Customers can also buy e-books online by simply downloading them on their PCs and or Smartphones. Security: Technological advancements have made buying books online more secure. When making an online purchase, check if the bookstore has an SSC certificate issued by a reputable digital certificate .pany such as VeriSign or GeoTrust. If a website does have an SSC certificate you can rest assured that any, that your account information such as password, email address and home address are safe from hacker attack. Credit card payment processor of the online bookstore must also be reliable so make sure that you choose websites that have PayPal payment processor. (PayPal is the world’s leading internet payment processor .pany with millions of trusted websites worldwide using it.) There are online bookstores that even offer non-card payment options such as bank transfer or check payment so this option can also be used if you are not .pletely convinced of entering you card details online.
