Top Tips For Buying Shoes Online

The thought of buying shoes online can be daunting to some. But we're here with the top tips to turn you into a savvy online shopper.

You may think shoe shopping is touch and try the experience, but buying shoes online can save you time and money. If you hate shopping or just love a bargain, online shopping is a must. Plus, you don't have to worry about car parks and queues. With hundreds of shoes at your fingertips, the hardest part is knowing when to stop!

With these tips, you'll have the perfect pair of shoes in your hands in no time.

The Right Size

It sounds obvious, but this is one of the most crucial issues in buying shoes online. Not all feet are made equal, just look at Cinderella. As you can't physically try on a pair, you have to rely on your measurements. Don't forget, sizes differ from country to country. To make sure you select the right size, Spend-less Shoes have our easy size guide featuring UK, Aus and EU sizes. For more information on different country sizing, read our article on comparing Aus, Uk and US shoe sizing.

Check out shipping times and charges

You'll often find a fabulous bargain when shopping online, however, don't get caught out on shipping costs! Unless you spend over a certain amount, individual companies may charge you through the roof for delivery. So make sure you check delivery cost before purchasing, as well as checking delivery timeframes. Spend-less offers affordable shipping options, plus estimated delivery time from warehouse to your location.

Policy check

Reviewing a company's policy on returns is essential. If shoes arrive damaged, or you end up with the wrong size, it's crucial that you understand your right to an exchange or refund. Spend-less are committed to providing quality value shoes, however, if you do require a refund or exchange, find all the help you need on our policy page.

Shoe images and descriptions

When it comes to buying shoes online, clear photos with a detailed description of materials and colours are a must. Spend-less offer alternative image views of shoes so you can get a sense of style. Product information is also readily available.

Ask for help if needed

Just because you're not in a shoe shop, doesn't mean assistance isn't possible. Feel free to call, email or live chat with a member of our team to get the help you need.

Sign up for newsletters
