Advantages: can use advantage card, wide range of products
Disadvantages: website bit cluttered
I am a massive boots fan I shop there all the time, so imagine my delight when I found that they had a website and a good one at that.
The opening screen on the first glance looks quite cluttered. There?s two menus. One at the top - this is the shopping part. And one at the side. This has stuff on it like site information and boots services etc?
The majority of the page is taken up by special offers and promotional items like a make up brand or a perfume.
They have everything online as they do in the shops. You can buy products which are listed by catergory (like makeup, hair care, etc) and also by person ( women, men, kids). There is also a search bar if your looking for a particular product.
The service is quite good as it actually has pictures of what you?re buying and a short description of what it is, although in some sections if your just browsing there are a lot of pages to go through which can get quite tedious.
Next to each product it gives you the opportunity to add it to your online basket, as its presuming that you are going to buy more than just one item. You can view what?s in your basket at any time while you are shopping by clicking on the basket summery box. It also gives you a running total which is a handy feature to make sure you don?t overspend.
Another advantage is that it tells you how much a product is per 100ml or grams so you can compare the best valued product.
When you?ve decided you?ve got everything you want you click on the basket summery box again and it will give you the chance to ?go to the checkout? where you enter your details and get it sent off to you.
Also it gives you the opportunity to add your advantage card number so the points you have earned can be put onto your card.
Delivery is a reasonable price £1.95, but its free if you spend over £30. Its within 5 working days, but if you want it the next d
ay it will cost you £4.95
The returns policy is good you can send the goods back within 30 days and you will get a full refund
The internet has the same offers as they have in the stores. But unlike the stores you can view the offers all in one place. This is to make sure you get the best deal possible. As there are so many its divided up into different sections. Like buy one get one free, extra advantage points and so on. You can really get a good deal by looking at this part of the website.
Most people Know that around Christmas time, and other special events, boots publishes a catalogue. If you want to purchase items from this and you want to do it online, instead of searching through all the different products, you enter the code next to the picture in the catalogue . Therefore making it a quicker and more easy shopping experience for you.
