I’ve been an online shopper for over 6 years now. I’ve ordered hundreds of items from jewelry to home items and everything between. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve received merchandise that has arrived damaged. If you’re an online shopper, you know that sinking feeling when you make that discovery. After all, you’ve waited days to receive whatever it was you ordered. There is a sense of excitement and anticipation. That can easily crash when you pull out damaged merchandise.
