Online Shopping 101: How Do You Buy from a Lazada Link?

Okay, a couple of days ago we talked of simple facts about online shopping and how does one go about it. Today, we would be delving into ‘how to’ buy from a link you see floating on your screen — like Lazada, a renown online ‘shopping mall’. So, stay with me.

Let’s say while you were updating your social media accounts you noticed an interesting item sold at Lazada, well, don’t hesitate..

CLICK THIS IMAGE to shop and take note of the delivery options to the right
After filling out the delivery options, check out its changes and follow the process below

JUST CLICK THE LINK

Because of the brief outline accompanying the link, you already have an idea of what the product is all about. But just an ‘idea’ is different from a full description, so just click the link and find out more about the product. Worry not, this stage is still free of charge!

But before we continue, let’s use a different item instead.

Say, the above is the item that appeared after clicking the link. It’s in fact similar to our first photo, I mean the structure. Except that here, the buyer didn’t immediately fill out the delivery options to the right.

Instead, after checking out the product info and its availability, the buyer then clicked ADD TO CART. And the screen below appeared.

CONFIRM SHOPPING CART

Now check the cart details. Click on how many of it do you want — or the quantity, that is. If you still want to buy other products then click ‘continue shopping’ (which is to the left); otherwise, if you are done shopping then click PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.

This is the screen that would appear after ‘proceed to checkout’ is clicked

KEY-IN YOUR EMAIL

An entity would not know how to get in touch with you if you don’t leave any contact details, right? So, keying in your email address on that blank bar would open up your end for notifications.

Still here, you got 2 options: (1) ‘continue without password’ and just sign in with your social media account, or (2) click ‘I already have an account’, choosing on this would require you to log in by entering your password which is actually much better if you plan to go online shopping not just once but every now and then — as Lazada would then use your ‘stored’ delivery info to speed up the process.

Provide shipping information to the left

PROVIDE DELIVERY INFO

Upon continuing, here’s when you provide info such as your shipping address and phone number, after all, how could they send it to you without a ‘drop-off’ information? Or how could they notify you if there’s no phone number? Yep, and especially useful for issues.

Just make sure you check out the ‘shipping fee’ because there could be some if you ordered ‘bulky’ items. Otherwise, ‘standard’ delivery is FREE. Now, if you’re done then click CONTINUE.

Choose your payment then review your order and delivery info at the right side

CHOOSE YOUR PAYMENT

An array of payment options would then appear on your screen after clicking ‘continue’. So, just click on which one you would prefer.

Now this is optional: If you have a ‘voucher’, you could then enter its ‘code’ and click ‘apply here’. Yes, it’s for discounts. If successful, the price would then be adjusted accordingly. But before proceeding, review your ‘order summary’ and ‘delivery information’. Correct? Then click on PLACE YOUR ORDER to finalize your purchase.

 

ORDER CONFIRMATION RECEIPT

After finalizing your purchase with ‘place your order’, you would then receive an order confirmation. By the way, take note of your ‘order number’ for future order tracking. This confirmation would also be sent to you via email and SMS. So, make sure you filled out your correct details. Read. Read. Read.

Simple Facts about Online Shopping

So, online shopping has become more and more popular around the world, eh — what with internet access to most everyone in the planet??! Still, many are either scared or overwhelmed by it; well, let’s then get a quick diagnosis on why such a feeling.

SCARY?

There’s actually a basis for this thought, I mean, being scared and stuff. For one, you’d be kinda paying online (unless they offer C.O.D. or cash on delivery) — like giving your credit card or account details! So it’s understandable. Then again, your peace of mind could come from ‘whom’ you are actually buying from.

And track record has something to do with this idea which especially includes ‘consumer experience’. Like, if the seller has an ‘inexcusable’ record of not being able to deliver on what they have promised then that’s a warning sign. See, legitimacy is more than just having ’em business papers — it’s first and foremost about the ‘experience’.

Anyhow, other revealing signs would also include the size of the company, otherwise, its years of existence. This would tell us if they are just a ‘fly-by-night’ establishment, or a company that would not run away with your money. Such companies have online security protection and you would just have to follow their procedures.

OVERWHELMING?

Now, speaking of ‘procedures’. One who is past the ‘scared’ stage might be in the ‘overwhelmed’ stage, you know. Like, since he is already aware of the seller’s legitimacy, he must then be eager to already purchase. Right?

Problem is.. Money. Ow, that’s a big one. Can’t be overwhelmed without money but depressed. Hehe.

Kidding aside, if money is not an issue then it must be technology. Perhaps the buyer has not tried ‘online shopping’ yet, and so, he’s overwhelmed on what to do — on how to do it without probably getting embarrassed, or making a mistake.

If that’s the case, here are his options: (1) Call or send a message to the seller for guidance. (2) If he wants independent action then do a search on the sellers’ online process. (3) Otherwise, carefully read what’s on the screen and especially take note of the delivery and payment procedures — if it suits him then he should follow ’em.

READY TO BUY?!

Once you are past the ‘overwhelmed stage’ — that only means, you already got an idea on how to shop online. Yes? Wow, this could be addictive. Hey, can you imagine the number of products available?? Thousands! And good quality at that! Besides, not only is online shopping convenient that you don’t need to leave your house, it’s also delivered at your doorstep!

Isn’t that cool?!! SHOP NOW!

Innovation Watch: pCell

Did you know that Artemis Networks has come up with a technological advancement that would make mobile data connectivity (like video streaming) run seamless and.. faster than it is today?

Steve Perlman

Well, yes.. Steve Perlman has developed what he calls pCell or “personal cell” technology. And this network equipment could actually draw a signal that is unique in itself for devices that connects to the transmitter, and thus, taking full advantage of the bandwidth.

See, one major problem with our connections (shared mobile bandwidth) today is that when there are so many users – congestion makes connectivity jam up. But with this technology, we could now experience faster and uninterrupted mobile data – even with a ton of users as these pWave radios are small enough to be placed just about anywhere. So.. is it goodbye dead spots as well?

image

Oh, just think of what Perlman told the Business Week, “…it’s like the wireless equivalent of fiber-optic cables. ”

Hmm…

At any rate, exciting as it may seem, the question would now be.. when would this pCell technology be available for the rest of the world, and “without technical problems” at that? Yes, it’d be set out in the U.S. before the year ends; but sadly, many countries (especially in their provinces) are just left too far behind.. even for as simple as the 3G.

App Review: Tinder dating site

With over 5 million downloads at Google Play, Tinder is among the hottest applications being downloaded today.

Tinder is actually a matchmaker of an application. And just like other dating sites, it mainly bases its search according to gender, age and location among others.

image

However, unlike other apps, Tinder is a bit more appealing with all those swiping as even athletes from the ongoing Sochi Winter Olympics uses the site to find dates, and especially last Valentines day.

Still, it was not all a “bed of roses” for its users as a flaw was recently discovered from the dating app. And what was it?

A user’s actual location could actually be pinpointed (by just using some high school math) when as we believe should be anonymous, right?

image

For one, this could be dangerous especially if one unknowingly encounters a “scheming” individual. The consequences.. oh, you could just imagine.

Sure, Tinder has promptly acted on it, but they better make sure that it’s really fixed and no other hacking would happen.

Gaming Review: Flappy Bird – R.I.P.(?)

It’s been several days now since the phenomenal Flappy Bird was removed from Apple and Google Play.. and what do you know?

image

The bird is still alive not just in millions of phones and tablets but in the heads of many as well.

Hmm… pretty amazing, huh? When you think about it, the game is just too simple to get addicted to yet how come many has even gone to extremes as a reaction to the pull out from Apple and Google store?

For one, you could have the game’s installer through Bluetooth, right? So why threaten or even buy mobiles with preinstalled Flappy Birds? Relax.

Well anyway, when one tries playing it.. clearly, a steady hand or finger is the key – what with a single missed tap and the game’s over?! And this is what, in fact,  makes it challenging. After 3 “game overs” or so, you just find yourself pushing harder to overcome those pipes. Oh?!wpid-FlappyBird.jpg

And so, despite the potential income for the Vietnamese game developer, we understand the decision of Nguyen Ha Dong to delete his creation.

Still, aren’t video games naturally addictive? It’s just a matter of appeal that the game has – graphics, challenges or what – that connects it with those hungry gamers.

For now, it’s game over for Flappy Bird.. and may you bring peace to your fans the world over.
