Check prices before buying
Go to sites like DealTime.com, mySimon.com, AddAll.com or pricegrabber.com to compare prices before you place your order. Try to read up reviews to find out if the product you want is worth the buy.
DON'T Buy from any Website!
Buy from Online Stores You Trust
When shopping online, there are many products that are fakes or duplicates, so make sure you buy from Websites that you are familiar with. Be sure to check out sites that have a substantial amount of customer reviews, as phony sites also attempt to attract shoppers using pop-up advertisements on the sides of your screen to steal financial and confidential information. Avoid websites you do not know.
Before ordering, do a bit of research to make sure that the Website you are about to buy from is reliable.
Never give out your personal information like credit card numbers, passwords or account details easily. Most reputable traders will not ask for sensitive details via email.
Don’t make any payment unless you’re on a secure website and you can make a secure payment. This will protect you against any unauthorized or fraudulent credit card transactions. A secure Website will always begin with ‘https://’, not ‘http://’.
DO Check the 'Details'
Read Selling Information
Make sure you read and understand the terms and conditions of sale, returns and refund policies including any associated costs. Some traders don’t make returns or refunds after a certain number of days.
Check your Invoice. Keep Records
Be meticulous in going through the order invoices you receive. Always save any reference numbers and print out copies of the order form and receipts. Always make sure all charges are correct by checking the receipt against your credit card statement.
Review your accounts regularly.
