“Over 60% of people have forgotten an online purchase until it shows up at their doorstep.”
Is your latest online buy doomed to collect dust? A new survey suggests a majority of buyers have regrets over their purchases.
A poll of 2,000 U.S. adults found 74% of respondents have experienced buyer’s remorse after purchasing items online.
Some common regrets include feeling like the item was less valuable than expected (39%), not using it as frequently as expected (34%) and having spent too much money in the first place (32%).
Many respondents blame their shopping experience on good advertising (43%), cheap prices (43%) and availability, such as having it come in a color they like (42%).
Commissioned by Slickdeals and conducted by OnePoll, the study found 73% of people own up to 15 items they dislike.
Shoppers recalled the last thing they bought online that they later regretted. That included electronics that died too early into use, clothing that didn’t fit right, knockoff designer sneakers, uncomfortable pet beds and even ill-fitting face masks.
