Online shopping has been one of the handiest innovations to emerge over the years allowing us a wealth of options to choose and the ability to shop from the comfort of our own homes.
However, with the convenience also comes the danger of not really knowing if you'll be sent what's actually shown in the pictures – we've all seen the hilarious online shopping fails – or the uncertainty of whether those perfect shoes you spied will go with the outfit you picked out for your upcoming special occasion.
Thankfully, ZM's morning show host Megan Papas has a genius online shopping shoe hack that you may find incredibly handy next time you're umming and ahhing over your dream pair of shoes.
Posting a video to the ZM Facebook page earlier this month, Megan shared how she picks out the perfect pair of shoes when shopping online with people hailing the hack as "genius".
The video, captioned: "Megan's online shoe shopping trick is too good", shows Megan holding a miniature cut-out of herself as she places it against her laptop screen on top of the shoes that catch her eye as she browses online.
Megan explained she prints out a photo of her side profile, wearing the outfit she wants the shoes to go with and cuts off her feet so she can line up the picture with the shoes on the screen.
Since sharing the video the clip has garnered more than 3.1 million views, more than 16,000 reactions and 52,000 comments with the hack being shared on news outlets around the world including the Mirror, the Daily Mail UK and Metro.
Viewers have clearly appreciated the online shopping hack.
"This hack is genius! Love it Megan," one person commented.
"I'm going to start doing this," another added.
"Game changer!" a third concluded, and we've got to agree.
