By on Jul 2, 2013 in Coffee Table Books, Kid's Corner | 0 comments

As a growing number of people are buying their books online, it is important to understand the features you should look for in an online bookstore. An online bookstore is expected to be a comprehensive website with a user-friendly interface besides having a large selection of books, a variety of payment options, excellent customer support and a robust return policy. For any online store, the most important criterion is a website that is easy to use so that customers can get their shopping done easily and without hassle. The large number of books on offer should be properly organised into categories and sub-categories so that the site remains easy to navigate and users are able to locate the book of their choice with a minimal number of mouse clicks. The speed of the website is another important factor that influences customer satisfaction. A good selection of books is critical to an online bookstore. An online bookstore is expected to have a collection of books from all genres. It is imperative that all the latest bestsellers are made available as these are the ones most users will look for.

Free shipping is something that customers have come to expect. The time required to deliver the order should be kept at a minimum and customers need to be updated about the expected time of delivery during the order itself.

Surge in Popularity of Online Bookstores

By on Jul 2, 2013 in Coffee Table Books | 0 comments

The popularity of online bookstores is increasing by the day. Online stores typically offer their books at lower prices and customers are able to make the purchase from the comfort of their homes. Online bookstores also offer customer reviews which reveal more about the book than a quick glance of its contents. Online bookstores are able to sell their wares at reduced prices as they are not required to rent a prime location space for the store. Furthermore, they sometimes do not always physically store the products but simply forward the orders to the publishers or wholesalers. Physical brick-and-mortar bookstores are limited by space and budget, but online bookstores face none of these restrictions. As there are several online stores selling books, the customer has the option of comparing the price of a book across the stores. This is another reason for the competitive pricing. In an effort to outdo each other, stores offer attractive discounts and offer free shipping if a customer’s order exceeds a certain amount. Another reason for the popularity of online bookstores is the convenience they offer. Any book you are looking for is just a few clicks away. You can buy books while relaxing in your pyjamas on your couch at 3 in the morning! You can browse through as many books as you like without pushy salespersons trying to force you into making a purchase. Unlike some of the other commodities, when you are buying a book online you don’t need to touch or feel the book to make sure it is a good purchase. In far flung areas a bookstore may be several miles away and getting to one can take hours. No such challenges are there with an online bookstore. The only possible drawback, regarding an online purchase, is that you may have to wait for some days before the book is delivered. Online bookstores generally allow users to post reviews and feedback. A new customer is, therefore, able to read the reviews and then decide on a purchase. The customer thus has greater confidence in his purchase. When looking to make an online purchase, you would be well advised to pick a website that has generally positive reviews among its...

Importance of Reviews in Online Bookstores

By on Jul 2, 2013 in Coffee Table Books | 0 comments

Online bookstores like TheBookCafe.in provide user reviews for all their titles. Users often read these reviews before deciding on a purchase. A collection of reviews eventually can be the single most important factor that makes them to click ‘buy’ button. Even if someone is looking for a specific book, he would often read the reviews to validate the quality of the book. Online stores actually actively encourage such reviews so that users are able to have greater confidence in their purchases. Reviews are important for nonfiction books, where buyers compare several books on a topic. Besides offering information about the books, these reviews focus on their positives and negatives, from the perspective of the customer. The reviews generate a great deal of information such as – the quality of the book, cost and shipping time. Customers can compare prices and offers from several bookstores and choose the one that is best for them as many online bookstores promote their products through attractive offers and reduced prices. Reviews also help the customer to understand the product better and get a fairly good idea about what to expect even before the purchase is made. Reviews help the customer make an informed decision by sharing both the negative and positive features of the book they intend to purchase. It is not just customers who benefit from the reviews. Since a lot of customers read reviews before making a purchase, the reviews serve as useful tools that online bookstores use to make their products stand out from the competition. While some bookstores are afraid of getting negative reviews, others believe that getting only positive reviews will affect the authenticity of the reviews. Negative comments are dealt with by clarifying the situation so that potential customers can make a buying decision based on facts as opposed to biases. However, not all reviews are genuine. Supporters of the author may post positive reviews on important online bookstores to influence sales. To overcome such a situation, online bookstores try to get as many reviews as possible for a title. They also monitor the reviews. Checks are performed to ensure that there is a connection between the reviews and the amount of sales for that title. A...
