Despite the increasing popularity of online shopping, many people are hesitant to purchase goods such as auto spare parts online. There is an unfounded belief that it is not as reliable as buying from a traditional store. In fact, modern online stores like Taobao Agents offer the same guarantees and provide a number of other advantages.
By saving on rent, logistics and staff costs, online sellers can offer customers better prices. The margins of online stores are also lower than those of traditional businesses, because the competition in price is much higher. How many specialized stores of auto spare parts can there be in one city? Ten to twenty, more only in cities with a population of over a million. Online, on just one trading platform hundreds of sellers compete on price.
Ability to easily compare similar models
If you want to buy, for example, a radiator, store salespeople will be able to show you no more than a couple of different models. You will have to choose from what is available, comparing by price and parameters, or go to another store if nothing suits you. The online platform will show you more than 10 models for each brand, each price category, required technical characteristics and other parameters. Especially if you use specialized services for online shopping, which immediately show similar options with price and rating for each product item you view.
When you go to a shopping center to buy auto spare parts, you can only count on advice from a seller who is directly interested in the sale.
In most online stores, you can see user ratings of the product, read reviews about the use of the product and about the store itself. It is easy for the client to make a purchase decision based on the seller’s reliability rating and user ratings of the product.
