It's the day of the internet and many people can't live life as it is if this technology called the internet is taken down, even for a day. You don't believe me? Tell someone you know to not use his/her phone for two weeks and just read books. I guess that will be one of the most painful punishment, if that person happens to be someone who his phone is like a body part to him. We are all guilty of it in one way or another.

In recent times, we have come to depend on not just smartphones but a whole lot of personal gadgets and devices. Talk about your tablets, high performance gaming laptops, iwatch etc. The list goes on and on. And not just that, lot of products are on the market, with mind-blowing specs that you definitely can't comprehend, and have a hard time picking what you want.

Some people go crazy for lastest releases and love hunting for them. They subscribe to their favorite gadget YouTube channel or that Facebook group and whenever there is a lastest news they are on it. An “aah" from Apple or a “mhm" from Samsung is big news to them.

And so for dealing with these smart tech lovers and the ever growing range of technological gadgets, offline stores can't keep up. If you live is a place like Lagos or any of our big cities, then maybe you can have access to one or two gadget retailers or markets with colossal inventory but if you are like me living in small town in Ondo or a growing town in Delta, shopping online is your best bet for access to the innumerable tech gadgets available and getting the specific one you need.

And to my surprise, shopping online has also become popular in our big cities, because it is one thing to feel the urge to buy a new smartphone, it is another thing to actually buy that phone. The price of a phone at a local store can make you scream while online you can get a good deal. Even a reduction of 1-3k can give you better value for your money.

Tips for Buying Gadgets Online in Nigeria.

1. Research What You Want (Read Products Description).

Most of us, whenever we need a new gadget work by recommendation and reviews. If we need a new smartphone or a laptop we usually check for picks online and discover a new product we love, we read reviews and watch videos, Next we make purchases and it ends up being a different thing.

What you might not have discovered is that even under a single product there might be variants. Like a pro and lite version of the same phone, or a phone with 3gb ram and another option with a 6gb ram.

These discrepancies can be sorted out if we actually read and go through the product description before we buy. If it doesn't match with what you want, don't buy.

2. Buy During Festive Seasons.

Except it really doesn't matter, or you need a new device urgently, most times it might pay to wait a few weeks or some months, so you can take advantage of special promos and price reduction.

Sometimes it might not even be price reductions. It might be some extra add-ons, like an earbud or a phone case or any accessories that can add value to you purchase.

3. See the Delivery Fee 

I don't know why, but I kind of like discovered that even for the same location, some products cost more for delivery than others. I don't know the reason for that, I might decide to find that out later but for now you should always check how much does the delivery cost for your particular item to be delivered to your location.

4. See And Test The Device Immediately It Arrives.

Whenever you delivery shows up, it is your responsibility to make sure everything is intact and in place. Open the cartoon, check all the add-ons. See the charger and the cords. Charge the device, see the manual, just do a complete general check.

While you may not have the delivery man wait so you can fully charge and power the device, you can clarify that things are in the right place and it's hopefully working.

5. Read the Delivery and Returns Policy of Your Store of Choice.

This is for your own good. Be sure you have read and understood what the policy addresses and how it works. You don't want a story that touch. Good experiences, like that of unveiling a new property should be a thing of joy, not of regret.

When you have these things sorted, you shopping time will be an experience you won't forget. The process will just be flowing smoothly that with time you won't remember that you once wasted time and effort moving from one store to another just because of buying a new iWatch with your own money.
