Online shopping has become something that is too common for life. If you have not tried shopping on Instagram, then you have come to the right place! For all you newbies, I’ll indicate the general rules of any instagram shop.

Rule # 1:

Do not reserve or say that you will purchase an item if you are not sure about getting it. It’s okay to be honest. It’s okay to tell the seller that you are not sure about getting it. Its is okay to indicate that you want it or like the photo. Just do not send your order form if you are only 50 % sure that you are going to buy the item.

Rule # 2:

The sellers are not always online. So if you are going to inquire about an item and do not immediately get an answer, do not flood their messages. You can try to message them again after a few hours or even a day after just so that you are assured they got your message. The sellers understand that you are a customer and cheap jerseys nfl they will reply to you if they really want to sell their products. If not, then don’t waste your time bugging them about an item. If they are offline, do not scold them for not replying. They are offline. Obviously, they will see your messages when they are online.

Rule # 3:

Make sure you pay as soon as you can. The sellers have to reserve an item for you, which is why they are just waiting for your payment before they mark the item as officially sold. Yes, you pay first before receiving the item. It is up to you to trust the seller as they trust you will buy the product. If you are not okay with this arrangement, then suggest that you meet with the seller. Otherwise, just go to the mall.

Of course, for the newbies out there, you are probably wondering: I do not have a credit card. How do I pay them? Here’s a guide:

The payment methods I have encountered are: BPI, BDO, Chinabank, LBC, Western Union, Cebuana Lhuillier and Palawan Lhuillier.

For bank transactions you do not need a bank account. All you have to do is go to the bank, prepare the Account Name and Account Number of the seller and proceed to the branch of the bank nearest you. So if the account is BDO, go to the BDO bank nearest you. Once you are there, tell the guard that you are going to make a bank deposit. He will lead you to the counter with the deposit slips, and then you may fill out the information and line up. For BPI, there is an electronic counter where you can imput the information required. You will be called to the counter and then they will ask for your payment. Once you have wholesale jerseys paid, they will give you a deposit slip, which you will usually send to the seller, proving that you have paid for whatever item you purchased.

For LBC, Western Union, Cebuana Lhuillier, Palawan Lhuillier and any other Pera Padala service, you have to bring with you a valid ID, which you will be presenting to the representative. Along with this, you will be asked for the Name, Address, and Contact details of the seller. The representative will imput the information in their system and ask for your payment, which usually has additional charge. Tell them it is a branch pickup transaction because the additional rates cheap nfl jerseys for that are cheaper. Once you have done that, you will be asked for the payment and they will give you a transaction slip as well. You will need to send a photo or scanned copy of this as well to the seller as proof of payment.

If you have an account in BPI, you can actually download the app, and activate “transfer to anyone” function. For information or help regarding this, you may contact me, or leave a comment, and I will assist you as soon as I see it.

I hope this post helped you guys and opened your eyes to the world of online shopping. Let me know as well if you want me to show you how to become an online seller as well. If enough requests come in, I will definitely create a guide for you guys.
