The Best Websites For Online Shopping In Switzerland

These days, a lot of shopping is done online. It is so practical to shop for something online. It can save you a lot of time. And it allows you to compare many different websites to get the best deals easily. Shopping online can also save you some money.

Of course, online shopping also has its dark side. Since it is convenient to shop online, some people are buying many more things than they should. It is so easy to press a button and get things delivered at home. I am sure it happened to many of you. At least, it happened to me!

If you are only buying things you need, online shopping can be a great thing. But you still need to know where to shop online. Even in our small Swiss country, there are hundreds of websites where to shop. And let’s not forget that sometimes online shopping is not cheaper than shopping in a normal shop!

In this post, I am going to list the best online shopping websites in Switzerland. This list should allow you to shop for the best prices!

Clothes – Zalando

If you want to shop online for clothes, you need to check out Zalando first. It is the most used website for clothes to this day. Women mostly use Zalando. But they also have a wide choice for men. I have myself ordered a few things there. Every woman I know is aware of Zalando.

Zalando has a vast choice of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, and excellent prices. They also have a 30-day return policy. If what you ordered does not fit you, you can send it back for free.

And even though they have a lot of cheap clothes, they also have some luxury clothes. And they have brand products as well. It should be your first choice. If you are not in urgent need of clothes, you should try to wait for sales.

Now there are other choices as well. I hate shopping for clothes. But when I do, I generally go to EMP Online. They are more expensive. But I only buy one or two pieces of clothing a year, so it is not that bad. And I have not bought anything more expensive than 25 CHF in many years now.

Electronics – Digitec

If you need to shop for electronics, your first choice should be Digitec. They have a massive choice of computers, phones, laptops, monitors, and every electronic you would ever need.

I am quite a geek myself, and I have bought many things at Digitec (probably too many). For 95% of the things I needed, they had the best price. And they also have excellent customer service. I had to return a few items under guarantee, and it was a great experience, no problems at all.

Over the years, I have bought pieces for several computers on Digitec and all my current accessories and monitors. I also bought my TV and my multimedia system there. Digitec is my website of choice for this.

Now, sometimes, you can find slightly better prices on Galaxus. But I have had issues with the customer service of Galaxus. It was much more challenging to return something. In the beginning, the website of Galaxus was terrible to search for, but now it seems they have improved a lot. Nevertheless, I generally start with Digitec first. If it is expensive, I will check with other Galaxus and sometimes other websites as well.

These differences are a bit weird because they are both parts of the same company, Galaxus Digitec. And for information, Migros has a majority stake in Galaxus Digitec.

While Digitec is strictly for Electronics, you can buy almost anything in Galaxus. There even have office furniture. It is currently the largest online retailer in Switzerland. I would also go there for home appliances, for instance.

Second-Hand – Ricardo

If you are frugal, you may want to buy many things second-hand instead of buying them new. There are so many things that are fine when you buy them second hand.

The best website to buy second-hand things online is Ricardo. It is an auction-based website for second-hand shopping. There are also some new items on it, but I rarely use this site for new items. What is great about Ricardo is that most sellers will send the item to you. You do not have to go there and pick it. But sometimes, you also have the option to pick it yourself if it is not too far.

Sometimes, you can find cheaper options on Anibis. However, almost nobody will send you things. And a lot of the advertisements are out of date. Another issue is that sometimes people will not answer you. But it is still worth it to look if you need something quite specific.

If you need to sell something online, these two websites are probably the best too. I have written about online selling in Switzerland before.
