How online shopping helps moms-on-the-go stay within their budget.
Modern moms are busy.
Between their working lives and raising a family, they have got multitasking down to a fine art. On top of their careers and always being a rock for their children, these Superwomen also somehow manage to balance the household budget like seasoned professionals.
There are times, however, when life becomes too hectic and even moms need a little help.
Ecommerce has definitely come to the party in this regard, and in a number of ways too. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Because ecommerce businesses are cheaper to run than physical stores, businesses can offer people lower prices. No budget-conscious mom needs a second invitation here. Regular discounts for online shoppers are another bonus.
There are so many options available online mothers will never have to stress over not getting the item they want when they need it most.
Feedback from other parents and product price comparisons are available at the click of a button. The time this saves for busy parents is priceless.
By far the biggest advantage of online retail is the ability to order what you want and have it delivered to your home – or anywhere you want for that matter – in double-quick time.
But even home deliveries are not perfect. Courier drivers can be delayed by flat tyres or have too many other stops to deliver quickly. No-one wants to spend precious time and money following up to see when a package will arrive.
Enter the Click & Collect model. Particularly with fuel prices skyrocketing, moms can save a lot of money by ordering an item online and then picking it up from a designated pickup point on their way to fetch the kids or while running errands.
Pargo has partnered with some of South Africa’s biggest retailers to offer such pickup points, so here’s to one less thing for moms to worry about!
