Is Buying Sari Online A Good Idea?

We often find ourselves flooded with these questions when buying a sari online, 'Should we buy a sari online?' 'Will I receive the same sari as seen online?' We check out a product, and before adding it to the cart, a number of thoughts come across our mind and we end up not buying the product.

E-commerce websites changed the way we used to shop before. From our favourite food items to electronic gadgets, we buy everything online. We are always ordering a new skirt or a dress on online shopping websites. But when it comes to buying a sari, we seem to have second thoughts. Why? If we can buy other clothes we can also buy saris online.

We believe buying sari is all about the feel, touch, draping the fabric over you. You run your hand over the material, casually drape it on yourself, feel the intricate designs, look for any defects, then you decide whether you want to make the purchase or not. But buying sari online has its own advantages. 

Why one should buy sari online?

When you buy sari online, you save yourself a lot of money and time.
Firstly, visiting a store to buy a sari means you get to visit only one store. Well, I don't think any of us have ever visited five different sari shops situated across different parts of the city just to compare the price and quality, and visit the third shop to finally make the purchase. Sounds like a tedious process. But when buying online, you always have the option to visit several sites and compare the product pricing, quality, material before finalizing your purchase. Without haggling with salesmen, you get the best price.
Secondly, you don't just get online delivery sitting at the comfort of your home, you get to buy from the best collection. The hottest trends come online first. You can buy the exact copy of the sari that Madhuri Dixit wore in Devdas or Deepika Padukone wore in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. You can also buy your favourite designer sarees, or traditional sarees from the remote parts of the country. Internet has really made the world a smaller place.
Thirdly, you don't have to spend your entire weekends making a trip across sari stores. The online stores are open 24x7, so you can shop for saris on your lunch break, or before going to bed at night. It is that easy.

So, what do you think now? Buying a sari online is not just a good idea, but the best idea. It is 100% safe to buy your favourite sarees online. However, just keep a few things in mind before you add it to the cart.

Things to keep in your mind before buying a sari online

  • Choose a trusted online store - There are hundreds of online stores that claim to sell the best quality authentic sarees. Check for their reviews on social media pages. Look at the different pictures uploaded. Many websites agree to send pictures over WhatsApp too, if such an option is available then go with this one. Do your research well before you make the purchase.
  • Choose portals specializing in Indian wear - Some websites sell saris by taking them from other retailers. The pictures you see on their websites are the ones that retailers send them. It's advisable to buy from a website that only specializes in manufacturing, designing, and merchandising saris and other Indian wear. This will also help you to avoid buying duplicate products.
  • Check the cancellation and refund policy - If you don't like the product after receiving it, many websites agree to exchange the product or refund the amount. You may not like the colour after receiving the sari or find a defect in one of the stitching patterns. Every customer-friendly websites offer their customers a hassle-free return policy. This should be checked by every customer before making a purchase online.
  • Look for what you're paying - Read the bill well. Look at the services you're paying for. If they are charging you for blouse piece, peco, and fall then think before buying. You can get these services at a cheaper rate at your local tailor, so why pay extra online? If it's a rare piece you're buying, then it's worth paying the extra.
