As the internet and new technologies have developed and grown, shopping has become limitless! More and more, people all over the world can take advantage of the inexpensive and high-quality goods sold in America. But why exactly are American stores so popular?
There are three major reasons for this:
It makes sense to go shopping in the United States because, compared to Russia and Europe, prices can be significantly lower and the selection much broader for many items. For many of our clients, this has become an important factor while deciding where to shop for themselves and their families. Moreover, many people have built successful business projects on these benefits. We talk about business in detail in some of our other articles, but now let’s take a look at just how beneficial it is to make purchases in the US in situations where you’re shopping for yourself and your family.
Below, we provide real-life examples of websites that are popular among Qwintry users. Be sure to pay attention to the prices - sometimes they are several times lower (!) than, for example, they are in Russia. And if you keep in mind that there are numerous and continuous sales, then your decision about whether to use American stores should be obvious.
It’s Completely Safe
It’s easy to return an item after you’ve already purchased it - just send the package back to the store. For 90% of stores, the return policy provides for convenient ways to return purchases. In addition, your reason for the return can be anything - for example, you don’t like the outer appearance of the item or how it looks with your other clothes. The most famous stores value their reputation, so they allow for quite a long period of time in which you can return their goods. Zappos.com, for instance, allows its customers to return their purchases for up to 365 days, without any fuss and at no charge. Nordstrom also offers this policy. We’ve even seen a situation where an item was returned 2 years after it was purchased.
When you make purchases in american stores, you can be absolutely certain that you’re not buying a fake or forged item, whether it’s clothing, shoes, and accessories from leading designer brands or inexpensive but high-quality casual clothing. This is an important point - you can’t buy fake or replica items in official stores, any place or any time.
In general, it’s extremely rare to find fakes in the United States; if it does happen, it’s usually from private sellers on eBay or through similar platforms. But even in such situations, the buyer is totally protected. Just open a dispute stating that you were sold a fake, and the seller will have to refund your money, his store will be closed, and he himself will have to pay a large fine.
There’s a Wide Selection
We’re sometimes asked for a list of stores that Qwintry works with. Fortunately, such a list doesn’t exist because it would be impossible to create - many tens of thousands of stores in the US, both large and small, sell hundreds of thousands of items: clothing, shoes, electronics, accessories and many, many other things. And although there isn’t such a list, you can take a look at the 20 most popular stores among Qwintry clients. In addition, we can give you a few recommendations about what to buy and where to buy it, based on the collective experience of our team members!
