Level 3: Things to consider while buying alcohol online
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Sunday the sale of alcohol, which has been prohibited since the lockdown began, will be permitted during level 3 which begins on June 1.
According to Business Insider SA, online alcohol sellers have reported a strong increase in demand during the past weeks, even though buyers will only get their deliveries at level 3 of the lockdown.
Whether you're buying a case or a bottle of your favourite drink, purchasing alcohol online comes with plenty of advantages. All you need is internet connection, money in your account, and your alcohol will be a few clicks away.
You can choose from a variety of brands available unlike having to drive from one shop to another. Get discounts at some stores which saves you money and you can also compare the prices in no hurry at the comfort of your home.
Here’s all you need to know before ordering your alcohol online. I have been using these tips when buying my groceries online during the lockdown and they can also help when it comes to alcohol online buying.
Find a reliable source
When buying online, I recommend you deal with a trusted supplier. Check the store's background, read the reviews and do proper research. Go ahead with your order once you are sure of their reliability.
Buy what you will enjoy
You will find that some stores are having discounts and who would say no to buying what’s on discount and saving some money?
Sometimes it does not have to be that way, You buying stuff you do not like just because it’s on discount, is not a good way of spending your money, especially when you will keep reminding yourself that the only reason you bought the beverages was because of a special.
Rather buy what you will enjoy. I’m sure it’s been long since you had your favourite alcoholic drink anyway.
