How Online Shopping Works

There are often times that we simply cannot find that piece of electronics or item that we are looking for in our own country and hence have to resort to looking online for it. Here is how online shopping works.
Pick your item
The very first step in ordering your item is that you will have to check if the seller is willing to ship it to your country. If they do provide it then you will have to come to terms with the price of the item and that you will have to cover the transportation charges of receiving the item. Once the payment has been made the seller will notify you that the product has been sent out to you.
Dispatching the item
Once you have purchased your item it will be sent through to the shipping companies located in the country or area. This may usually not take longer than one or two working days to get the package to the couriers. After it has arrived at its location to be shipped, they will issue you a tracking number through which you can track your shipment. This is an important step in getting the item since it is a clear indication that the seller has successfully sent out the item. This is as far as the seller’s responsibility would go.
Customs clearance
Once the product is shipped and arrives at the destination country the product will be inspected by customs clearing agents in Dubai. Depending on how much you have declared for the item they may decide to charge you for the clearance according to the country’s law on imported goods. This is usually the case for imported electronics where they may require that you pay an additional amount to collect the goods. However this is not always the case since due to the large amounts of goods that are transported they may often overlook your item.
Once all this is through. The product is then set for delivery. It will be placed in a warehouse first where the items will be ready for delivery. This should take less than a day or two usually depending on where the warehouse is located and the address of your residence. Once it is sent out and you have received it, it will be updated in the tracking service and then your order will be complete.
Online shopping may have its risks since sometimes the goods may be damaged upon shipping, so it may not always be the seller’s fault if you end up receiving a faulty good.
