Companies such as Fingerhut started business based in catalog sales. Today, online shopping gives shoppers another option for browsing and purchasing items. While Fingerhut and other such catalog companies do a significant business the traditional way, online shopping is quickly encompassing a large volume of sales. Benefits of holiday shopping online include a wider selection, convenient shipping methods, an easier way to compare prices, styles, sizes and other product details and an easy way to send gifts by simply changing the ship to address.
The holidays can be hectic, especially when it comes to shopping. Shopping online is a good way to find deals. A common concern of those who shop online is the shipping charge. Retailers such as Fingerhut often offer shipping deals, especially as the holiday shopping season approaches. Popular selections among holiday shoppers include electronics such as laptops, cellphones and cameras and clothing items such as sweaters, jeans and shoes. Holiday decor is also popular, including lights, trees, window decoration, wall decor, candles, ornaments and more.
William Fingerhut and his brother Manny founded Fingerhut as a company that sold automobile seat covers. In 1952, the Fingerhut brothers reestablished the business as a mail order catalog company. Popular items at the time included tools, dishes, towels and other items for the home. Fingerhut went public in 1969. Since then, Fingerhut has grown into a leader in the mail order catalog business. Today, Fingerhut has joined several other companies who have used the internet as another way to distribute their products.
This doesn’t mean that traditional sales are discounted. A recent survey of online shoppers shows that many online consumers still shop in traditional ways such as going into a store or purchasing items from a catalog. Stats show that approximately 66 percent of Americans who are online also shop online. Nearly 110 million people in the United States alone use the internet on a regular basis. Worldwide, there are more than 360 million regular internet users. .
All catalog products are available as online shopping selections. Shoppers have the option of applying for a Fingerhut card to do their online shopping or catalog shopping with low monthly payments. Customers choosing the online shopping method can place items in their cart and see what the payments per month would be with a Fingerhut card. A sneak peak of Fingerhut’s Holiday Big Book is available now with the option to start online shopping for the holidays right now.
