Online shopping is super convenient, a whole world of products and services to choose from that will get delivered to your doorstep at the click of a button. However, there is, of course, a price to pay for all this convenience.
Firstly, you don’t get to physically touch, smell, and judge the true dimensions of a product like you would in a shop. This can lead to all kinds of misunderstandings, particularly if you are dealing with some unscrupulous companies from less regulated countries.
Then there is the waiting. It could get stuck in customs, the wrong product could’ve been sent by mistake, it might get broken in transit. It could end up being an awfully long time between you clicking ‘buy’ and actually receiving a satisfactory product in your hand! However, these are the risks we take for a bargain, and not having to drag around town looking for something in a shop. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of times when online shopping went hilariously wrong, as a kind of cautionary tale. Do your research before you click that button! Scroll down below to check it out for yourself, as well as some previous posts here, here and here, and share your own experiences in the comments!
