  • Offers and flash sales.
  • Some sellers offer free shipping & COD option.
  • Lucrative return and refund policies.


Here are few tips to make online fabric shopping safe, secure, and enjoyable. 


  • Be clear on the type of fabric you are searching for!


Sometimes it takes a lot of time to select the fabric and might end up choosing the wrong one. This problem occurs when you are not sure about the type of fabric you want. It is highly recommendable to understand the requirement and then search for the fabric online. Although there are a lot of options available nowadays to source it is always good to set a clear wish list. It saves a lot of your time and leads you to the correct seller. Be assured of the quantity of fabric required to stitch your dress and then go for ordering the product. You may land up to a real mess if the fabric cut-piece falls short and the seller might not have the same material in its stock.

  • Are you a deal-digger!


Sellers come up with so many attractive offers time-to-time. They flash these offers, schemes, flash sales on their social media pages for wider reach. If you love to shop during a sale, it's recommended to follow your favorite seller on social media. Some sellers retarget their old customers through emails or WhatsApp messages. It is always good to do a membership login to know about offers and other promotions much before the new customers. Sharing your correct contact details with the seller is also helpful.


  • Check descriptions!


Online sellers attract their customers by showcasing beautiful images online. But it is always advisable to check descriptions of the product before making any purchase. Images are good to have a feel of the fabric but sometimes can mislead you as well. It is necessary to check the fitting guide, washing instructions, color, material quality, and disclaimer if any before proceeding with the purchase. If possible try to get a sample from the seller to check the quality of the fabric before making the purchase.


  • Research before purchase!


Do a small research on the online store before making any purchase. Some of the factors which should be kept in mind are- the reputation of the online store, online reviews, opinions on the store, secure site, clarity on return and refund policies, etc.
