Tips For Shopping Online

1. Be wary of any emails you get, even if they appear to be from the retailer you trust. Never click on a web link that directs you to a web site other than the main one you shopped on.

It is much safer that way.

People are more than pleased to complain about bad service online, so search for sites and testimonials which are terrible so you know what you're getting into. You need to take bad reviews using a grain of salt, but if you see many, you know there is a problem.

4. Do more research around the online store you are interested in before ordering a product from their website. If a store does not provide quality service or products, you will more than likely find some negative reviews published on other sites. It is best to stick to online stores with the excellent reputation.

5. If you are going to become doing some shopping on the web, make sure you understand the liability for each credit card you utilize online. Many credit cards have automatic fraud prevention built in while others offer it for a minimal fee. You do not want to get stuck with purchases made on the card in the event the number is stolen.
