Online Vintage Luxury Shopping Issues
Secondhand fashion has quickly evolved in recent years especially during post covid era. There has been an increasing rise in the international interest of environmental protection and waste reduction. One way to contribute in that has been reducing fast fashion production and opting for recycling and circular economy.
Vintage fashion is perfectly aligned with these environmental values and therefore vintage luxury platforms have also seen a significant boost in sales.
However, there are also certain difficulties when it comes to shopping pre-owned items online. As sustainability takes center stage in consumer preferences, it becomes imperative for e-commerce platforms to address hurdles strategically.
Let’s delve into some potential hurdles of shopping pre-owned luxury online and how all these are solved on eLADY for a better customer experience.
Challenges that vintage luxury e-commerce platforms are facing
Size Description and Return Policy
Customers may hesitate to purchase vintage items online due to sizing discrepancies and the inability to try the items on like they would in real life.
Accurately Providing Quality and Condition
Consumers may be wary of the perceived quality and condition of vintage items purchased online. Photos of the items can also sometimes be misleading due to lightning and technical issues, resulting in further doubts.
Educating the Consumer
Another potential point of inconvenience of e-commerce fashion is the lack of information when it comes to the actual benefits of choosing secondhand pieces of luxury fashion, as well as the merit of opting for a circular economy.
Due to vintage fashion being such as a vast market, it is hard to tell when the price of an item is accurate or not. In addition to the concerns raised by the potential ambiguity of shopping online, this could impact the willingness to invest in sustainable fashion.
