Online Shopping Mall - Free Shipping From Stores

By: Jerome Sturgeleski

One of the main reasons anyone goes to an online shopping mall is that there are a large number of products in a large number of categories. If you look closely, however, a lot of times the supplier to these product may be other stores and the mall just acts as an intermediary. This may not be a big deal since you are ultimately getting the product anyway. The online shopping still is a great alternative when a lot of shopping has to be done in a short time period.

There are many variations of online shopping malls. There are specialty malls that offer a wide variety of a certain type of products and then there are ones that offer a wide variety of many different items. Depending on what you may be looking for, you may need to evaluate what the mall actually has before shopping there.

Online shopping malls offer a variety of different payment options. Some require you to leave the website to make payment and then come back to it. Some may take major credit cards and take payment right within the mall itself. Some may even offer their own credit cards.

A new type of a online shopping mall is one that offers rebates for each dollar spent. These are called portal online shopping malls and they require signing in and then allowing you to shop a virtually any store. The reason for the sign in is so they can keep track of your purchases so you get credit for them. The stores in this type of mall typically offer free shipping on most products. Imagine the saving you will accrue by shopping this way. For example, spend $100 and get free shpping and still get your merchandise. This would change your shopping habits forever.

As you can see, a online shopping mall is a truly money saving way to shop. Often times the savings are enough to pay for the shipping. There are even monthly specials that offer free shipping so the savings would be even more. How would anyone go wrong?
