Benefits of a VPN for Global Sales

Published Categorized as Shopping

Have you ever thought about how useful a VPN could be during global sales?

Nowadays, sales – both online and offline – are a big deal. All around the world, people use sales as an opportunity to get more items for a lower cost. Global and seasonal sales are whole events by themselves. A popular example of such events that I am sure everyone is aware of is the famous Black Friday.

After being asked if they will participate in Black Friday this year, roughly 80% of people answered “yes”. And that’s no surprise. Black Friday has many benefits, for customers and for companies. Companies receive extra traffic, sales, brand recognition and new clients, while customers obviously get lower prices (better deals). Imagine you’ve been wanting to buy something for awhile now but the item seemed overpriced. Now that it’s on sale, you’re ready to give it a shot. As soon as it’s on sale, you might as well give it a chance. It definitely goes without saying that many people use Black Friday to buy presents for Christmas, as Black Friday is only approximately one month away from the popular holiday. 

So, how exactly can a VPN help?

Now try and visualize the pressure and the traffic online during this period. People from all over the world intensively buying all they can – all in the span of a short period. You might have not thought about this, but a good secure VPN could really save your day. First of all, Hackers are clearly active during the holidays. It’s a great time for them to create fake apps, steal online, and trick people. These hackers are fully aware of how much they could steal from eager shoppers. Furthermore, customers are often willing to take risks for discounts. If you simply install a VPN, you don’t have to worry about shady and unreliable websites and apps. If there is a problem, you will know about it right away, with zero risks.

That’s not the only advantage a VPN has. Have you heard that by changing your location, Netflix gives you a different variety of series and movies to watch? Well, same here. Changing your location or region could significantly change prices and discounts. Some discounts that could be unavailable for you in one place could be available in another.

Okay, but how do I do that?

This might seem hard, but it’s actually really simple.

First, download the ForestVPN App from App Store or Play Store, it will look like this:

Then sign up and you will see that the app provides different location options. If you subscribe to Premium, you will get a wider selection of countries to pick from.

Once you’ve picked the country of your choice, check your online stores and look for better deals.

Let’s say you need to buy presents from Aliexpress. If you switch your location, the discount numbers will change. In the pictures below, we used our VPN to change the location to Chile and as you can see, numbers really changed.

If you don’t believe me yet, I will gladly show you a big difference in numbers using Steam – a popular online gaming store. The prices and games available change depending on location too. In the first picture, the price for “Melvor Idle” is 259 rubles (approximately 2 pounds), whereas in the other country it is 7 pounds. Big difference, isn’t it?

If this was not enough to persuade you, one more benefit of a VPN by your side – privacy. Some people get paranoid or just don’t like anyone to know what they’re up to. Set up a VPN and there you go – no one will have access to your purchases.

And the icing on the cake: ForestVPN is the free VPN app
