Shopping for kids clothes has never been easier. Online stores offer an unbelievable selection of kids clothing in nearly every color, style, and size you can imagine, and all of them can be arranged on your screen for easy comparison shopping. There are no crowds to fight, no traffic to beat, and no parking hassles. All you need to buy kids clothing easily and quickly are access to a computer that is connected to the internet and a credit card, a debit card or a PayPal account.
Before you begin, figure out what size kids clothes your child needs. Most online stores that sell kids clothes provide help pages to help you determine what size your child needs, but you will need to know her height and weight. Some online venues cater mostly to people who are already familiar with their products and don’t offer a lot of detail about the items. Unless you know a product well and are confident you know exactly what you are getting, look for a website that features good photographs and plenty of details about materials, sizes, color and embellishments. Alternately, call or email the site for more details or use the store’s messaging system to communicate with a representative.
If the online retailer has a bricks and mortar store selling kids clothing near you, check to see if they will pull your item from the shelves of the store and have it waiting for you to pick it up. Failing that, the store may allow you to have your item sent to the store for pickup at reduced shipping and handling rate. Find out whether you can save money on shipping and handling by buying several things at the same time from the same store, or whether there is a dollar amount you can spend that will make you eligible for free shipping.
Different kids clothes retailers have very different return policies. You may be able to return kids clothing items to a local store, or you may be able to get a prepaid return label from the website. In addition, exchanges may not incur any additional shipping fees. Other sites have stricter return policies, however, so double check before you order. Save all receipts, packing slips and shipping labels until you are sure the kids clothing fits and is as it was described on the website.
