Questions to Help You Find the Best Online Gift Shop

Online gift shops make it easy to find the personalized, handmade presents you love right from the comfort of home. However, shopping on the internet for the first time can be a scary prospect. To make your online gift shopping experience easier, we have questions to ask before you make your first purchase.

  • Is your website secure?
    Before you hand over personalized information like credit card numbers to an online gift shop, make sure the website they use is completely secure. A padlock icon located on the website ensures that the company uses proper security measures to protect your sensitive information.

  • What types of payments do you accept?
    Most online gift stores accept a wide range of personalized payments, from credit and debit cards to PayPal and other online transaction sites. No matter what type of unique gifts your are shopping for, make sure the store is ready to accept your payment of choice.

  • What is your return policy?
    Whether you are buying men's or women's clothing or even a home decor item, it can be difficult to know if the present will be right from a picture on a website. Find out if the gift shop allows returns and if they charge a restocking free for placing the inventory back on the warehouse shelf.

  • Do you have deals on shipping?
    Shopping online for gift baskets, handmade presents and home decor can be convenient, but if shipping prices are exorbitant, then it is hardly cheap. Many online stores offer free shipping deals if the purchase amount exceeds a particular threshold, making the shop a better bargain.

  • How long have you been in business?
    The longer a gift store has been around, the more likely they offer quality products and good customer service. Many well-known stores may also specialize in online sales of handmade baskets, home decor and souvenirs.

    "I live just right down the road from this hole in the wall. It is so junkie that you cannot look at anything, because the isles are so close you have to lean sideways. The porn magazines, etc. that they sell are sitting right at the front door and most of it is uncovered, for any child. They sell live bait and they charge over $2.50 a dozen for them and most are dead by the time you get where you ..."

    Working for, or starting, a gift shop can be a smart career move. While retail stores can suffer during harsh economic times, these stores tend to remain consistent in profit margins as long as the business model is strong and the location is in a popular spot.

    Friendly customer service experience will get you far in an interview. Having extra knowledge on the specialty items including custom frames, handmade journals, and flowers, may also help you in your position. Most gift shops sell a large variety of items, so you may have to obtain knowledge on a number of things in order to advise customers properly. Some shops will also require you to personalize souvenirs and stationery for customers, wrap presents, or arrange gift baskets. Training for these jobs is usually done on site.

    If you decide to start a gift shop, first find a location that will see a decent amount of foot traffic. The decor should be inviting and customer friendly while not making the store look cheaply thrown together. Before opening, decide what products to carry whether glass items, greeting cards, presents, or jewelry. You should decide whether or not handmade items should be included, and whether you should allow the customers to personalize pieces. Selling unique items like novelty toys, baby baskets, or local art can put you in a niche market. In this case, you may wish to go online and set up a web-site to increase sales. To appeal to a wider audience, you may want to include men and women's apparel, housewarming pieces, and other accessories.

    To run a business, you should be familiar with the standard business framework you'll need. Pick employees who are helpful and don't just stand around like decorations. Learn about tax laws and how to properly file before starting this venture.
