Tips For Shopping Online

 

Online shopping is big business these days, with more and more consumers across the world turning to the World Wide Web to purchase goods.

 

Shopping made convenient, often lets you find the best prices, and lets you enjoy delivery to your doorstep. But getting a great deal online involves more than just getting the lowest price.

 

You want to be sure that products arrive on time, that quality is what you expected, that items include a proper warranty, and that there is a way for you to return products or get support with any questions or issues you have.

Opt for your mobile phone network over public

 

Wi-Fi Public Wi-Fi is unquestionably something we as consumers now expect. From shops to cafes to restaurants, being able to access the internet with little or no cost is in tune with our connected way of living.

 

However, when it comes to buying online, all the convenience that comes with public Wi-Fi can be overshadowed by the many risks that are associated with this service. You’d be surprised at how unsecure many hotspots actually are and how easy they are to attack.

 

Make sure you are using a secure computing environment.

 

If your computer isn’t protected from malicious software your financial information and passwords will be stolen (and everything else you store on your computer or do online)

 

Avoid ’too-good-to-be-true offers.

 

Any store that promises too much at too low a price is suspicious. If the price is too low, consider whether the merchant came by the items legally, if you will ever receive the items you paid for, whether the items are actually the brand shown, or a cheap substitute, if the item will work,

 

if you will be able to return damaged goods – or if the merchant is earning extra income by selling your financial information. Disreputable online stores – like their brick and mortar counterparts, may run an absurdly low price offer and then, claiming the item is out of stock, try to sell you something else in a classic "bait and switch" scam

 

Look for any merchant offers, coupons or discount codes.

 

Applying a coupon or discount code to your order can save a significant amount on your purchases or shipping costs

 

Always check the company’s shipping terms.

 

Some merchant’s charge exorbitant shipping fees that can turn a shopping bargain into expensive mistake. Look to see if they provide tracking and insurance. Understand what carriers they use, and be particularly cautious if the item won’t be shipped within 10 days.
