Every people living in Ghana have several ways to do their shopping. Some of them search on book and call the company where they want to shop, another person will look for products through different shops and many people specially young buyers look for shops on internet to buy some laptops, phones and more products without doing a lot of effort. Today the question asked by many Ghanians on forums is to know the difference and advantages between these two types shopping (offline and online).
Offline shopping means you will go physically to the shop while choosing your products and purchase it. This type of shopping required a lot of effort and sometimes it can take up to 2 hours before finding the product you are looking for. The advantage of this kind of shopping is the diversity of products that you can find and a complete service provide to you by the company. If you decided to purchase a laptop at PC Direct (a big shop in Ghana), you will get a chance to install all necessary software on your machine by specialists of this shop and you can also get many peripherals that come with your machine.
By cons in Online shopping, you are sitting in front of your computer, choosing the product on internet and buy! Generally when you use online shopping in Ghana it can be difficult for you as you don’t know sometimes the company or the person who sell the product. But since CediBasket make their website available for all Ghanians you can buy your product and wait for it at home. The advantage of online shopping is that you can find for example PC Direct on http://cedibasket.com search for a phone or laptop and buy it without going to that shop. Since February 2012, CediBasket is the place where most Ghanians do their shopping. As they said when you are on internet, it’s better to shop on companies that you know than purchase some products with a person that you don’t have any idea. That’s why they like CediBasket because it helps them shop on companies located in Ghana without going through these companies.
Note that there is not a big difference between online and offline shopping, they all are a way for us to do shopping. But if you are always busy and don’t want to spend a lot of time to search for you product, the online shopping is for you and CediBasket must the credible website to do your shopping in Ghana.
