things you should remember whenever you go shopping

Make sure the product you want to buy is still in stock

By checking the availability, you can make the right choice. If you’re looking for a specific item and stock is not available and showing it will be in stock on a specific date. Please note that the price might change on that date. So better buy the item in stock.

 

Check return policy

When buying online, make sure to check out the company’s return policy, especially if the product is expensive.

There are three main types of return policies:

  • Refunds: When you get your product, and it doesn’t work.
  • Replacements: When you get a faulty product, but you still want to keep the one you got.
  • Exchanges: When you get a faulty product, but you want to try out the other one.

 

Buy products from reputed sites

Make sure the website you are buying from has a ” No fraud warning” on it. Some websites are usually run by people who just started a website and have no interest in selling anything. All they care about is collecting your personal and credit card details so they can keep them for themselves and refuse to pass on these details to the actual seller.

 

Always read the fine print

You may think you are an expert when it comes to reading the terms and conditions of a website. But if you actually read the small type on every web page, you visit. You will discover how much knowledge you really have about all those sneaky little rules and regulations that apply to you. So read those terms and conditions pop up before accepting it.

 

Beware of hidden charges

Make sure you are aware of any and all shipping charges before you place your order. Some online retailers will sneak unexpected and ridiculous shipping charges onto their order summary without your knowledge. Others may email or text message you with an explanation of the charges after you have already ordered. This is sneaky and unfair. Make sure you are aware of all charges before you order.

 

Buy from a retailer who ships to your country

If you are going to buy something over the Internet, it is usually a good idea to buy from a retailer who ships to your country. You see, many online retailers use a “dummy” address to process your orders. This means, of course, that they only pay the regular postage rate for your package. But it also means they don’t have to deal with international tariffs and other hassles of international trade.

 

Do NOT enter your social security number or credit card details on any web page that doesn’t require it

Always remember… nothing bad is going to happen to you if you give out this information to a legitimate website operator. But if you do give it to a scammer, you could end up with a $3,000 per month phone bill or worse.

 

Beware of pop-up ads

They are an annoying nuisance. But one of the main ways scammers make money on the Internet is by tricking you into clicking on those nasty little pop-up ads.

 

Read the entire website before you buy from it

Read the entire sales page before you place your order. Don’t just glance at the headline and the first couple of paragraphs. Read the entire page. This will give you a clear picture of what you are getting and make sure you aren’t being fooled by a “scam website.”

 

Check site is secure or not

Beware of websites that say they are secure when they are not. Look for the little padlock icon in the bottom-right corner of your browser. If it is not there, the site you are on is not secure. Look for words like “www.paypal.com” or “www.amazon.com” in red color on a blue background. If you see them, it means the site is not secure.

 

Before buying an electronic product

If you are looking at an electronic product, make sure it has an “EPD” (Electronic Product Declaration) or “EPI” (Electronic Product Information) label on the bottom of the box. These labels indicate that the manufacturer guarantees the electronic product for one year and it is backed by a full-service warranty.
