#Clothing Size Chart
In most Korean clothing stores, you can try on clothes before purchasing them. When you try on the clothes, usually an employee will ask for your size. Therefore, it is beneficial to know the Korean clothing size or shoe size when you go shopping. Even though the item is the same size, the fit may differ depending on the brand or clothing store, so be sure to try it on prior to purchase. Also, there are many “F” (Free) size clothing in Korean clothing stores. Remember, the majority of these clothes are medium size clothing!

#Please Insert Your Card #No Need To Sign
“Insert your card in the front.” You can easily hear this expression when you pay with your credit card at a cafe or shop in Korea lately. At majority of stores, customers can directly pay by inserting their card in the machine. If you are trying to pay for your meal at a restaurant or beverage at a cafe and a card reader is placed in front of you, be sure to listen to what the employee says. You may sometimes hear, “No need to sign for purchases less than 50,000 won.” Or you may see a sign that says “No signature for purchases less than 50,000 won” on the card reader or by the counter. Do not think it is odd if you do not have to sign for credit card purchases that are less than 50,000 won when shopping in Korea!

#How To Get A Tax Refund
Foreign tourists can receive a tax refund if they spend more than 30,000 won worth of goods in a transaction. Tax refunds are only available for items purchased at a tax refund affiliated store.
