Four things to consider when online shopping

One of the perks of online shopping is the convenience it offers.  With the click of a button, a Kenyan can shop for clothing, beauty products or even electronics from the comfort of their living room on Amazon USA/UK or other f international shopping websites available. Online shopping offers Kenyans opportunities to shop for a variety of products that aren’t readily available, compare prices from different websites, shopping apps and take advantage of discounts.

Things to consider when online shopping

  1. Read reviews

Before making purchases online, one should always read reviews of the product. Reviews help customers determine quality of products from the experiences of other users who have purchased the same items. Research has shown, customers will make purchases quickly from a business that has positive reviews.

2. What are their returns and cancellation policies

Before shopping online from any website, one should consider their policies on returns and cancellations. Ensure the business has clearly stated their rules and procedures for this since one cannot physically verify the product.

3. Always read the description

When making an online purchase, never base the decision solely on the displayed product image. Always read through the description before adding items to cart. If for example you’re buying a flower vase, it maybe photo shopped to appear larger than it is. The product description provides the exact dimensions and this will save you some buyer’s remorse.

4. Payment methods

Both options will require the customer to use their secret M-PESA PIN. The customer can then view their card details and generate the “CVV” required to confirm online card transactions, manage their cards, set up repeat payments and access their Mini-Statement.

NB: The CVV number is valid for 30 minutes at a time after which one needs to generate a new one through view card details.

The M-PESA GlobalPay  Virtual Visa Card will be exclusive for international online payments. .

Once a customer performs a transaction with the card, they will receive an SMS with the prevailing exchange rate for the transaction value. Transactions will be subject to current M-PESA limits of KES 150,000 per transaction and KES 300,000 per day at the prevailing Forex rates.

The M-PESA GlobalPay  Virtual Visa card is a timely service tailored to meet the increasing needs of Kenyans using global apps and shopping websites for entertainment, retail, business and even when travelling abroad.

In addition to providing customers with the freedom and convenience of transacting across the world, the M-PESA GlobalPay  Virtual Visa card builds on M-PESA’s security by empowering customers to generate a unique CVV that is valid for a 30-minute  Customers will key in their M-PESA PIN each time they generate a CVV.

King’ang’i puts Mirema girls on the spot for harassing Wababa

Mwalimu King’ang’i has called out girls from Mirema for giving Wababa’s a hard time when all the old men want is a good time away from their wives.

Speaking during the Morning Conversation, Mwalimu says most of these girls harass these men because they know they are ‘helpless’.

“These girls harass these old men. Mzee amemeza dawa and all the lady is saying is she be given time to prepare while still in Mirema. Mzee saa hiyo ako Yaya doing press-ups.”

Mwalimu says most times some of these old men will pretend to be romantic just to make sure the lady comes as agreed.

Refusing to come might end up giving the man a heart attack due to the blue pill being swallowed.

“Umetoka?” they ask. They even pretend to be romantic. “Umesema umetoka ama nikutumie gari?”

The ladies then warn the Wababa not to assume that there will be anything intimate between them. Cases of people dying during steamy sessions are not anything new not only in Kenya but also worldwide.

In January 2022, A man died after booking a hotel room with his girlfriend in Nairobi’s Kawangware area. The man is said to have collapsed and died, according to the woman who notified the hotel management and police.

In March 2022, a 45-year-old man died at an apartment in Kilimani area, Nairobi. He is said to have been seeking ‘entertainment’ in the hands of a 25-year-old woman.

He even cited a particular case where he had been paid $5000(Shs 580,500) dollars to curtain raise for Katt Williams.

Business was so good in the states, that Chipukeezy noted he would go back to the USA again for another comedy tour.

Eric Omondi spent 400k on 2 pairs of Balenciaga distressed sneakers

Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has revealed that he coughed up 400k for two pairs of the tattered, distressed Balenciaga shoes-the money includes shipping fees.

According to the luxury fashion brand, the lowest-priced shoe in the line starts at Sh266k and the most expensive pair clocks Sh74k.

On Wednesday, Eric took to social media to flaunt his fresh pair of the now-viral shoes.

Speaking in a phone interview with Mpasho’s Hannie Petra, Eric said he spent over 400k on the two pairs including the shipping fees. 

“I’ve just shown people one pair only. I bought those ones at 213 thousand shillings. I have the grey ones as well… yes I bought two pairs. I just spent over 400k on shoes,” he said.

The comedian bragged that he bought them because he thinks they are unique and the designer behind them was artistic and showcased their creativity.

“I bought them because they’re unique, artistic and creative, such an amazing statement piece, hakuna viatu zingine kama hizo.”

He says Kenyans should get used to seeing him rock the torn shoes all over because they’ll be part of him.

“Kwanza these ones I’ll wear them everywhere, you’ll never see me without them. I do not think I will be wearing any other pair in a long time.” 

Eric says he bought teh shoes as a way of rewarding himself hence he does not feel like it was moeny wasted.

“I do not feel like I wasted money. In all the years I’ve been alive how many pairs of shoes have I worn? Some people buy cars others houses, I bought shoes. Once in a while mtu anajitreat,” he replied.

Eric rubbished claims that the shoes he flaunted on social media were fake based on the old Balanciaga box.

“To those claiming the box is old, have you seen the shoes themselves? The packaging is a statement as well. Kwanza the box of the other pair looks older. It is the whole idea, inakuja na box inakaa imechapa” he defended himself.

Radio King Maina Kageni has also revealed that he has ordered tow pairs of the Balenciaga .

According to the fashion house, only 100 pairs of “extra destroyed” sneakers will be available to buy.

Balenciaga describes the sneaker as a “retooled classic design,” which is finished with “distressed canvas and rough edges, affecting a pre-worn look.”

Pingache Moses: Of course. And if your side hustles allow you to be his neighbour he will start being hostile for no good reason. BYOB!
