The easiest rules for safe online shopping that I adhere to myself.
1. Look for a good return policy. This way you can shop with confidence, knowing returns are easy, whether it’s in-store or online.
2. Look for the fine print. Especially with imports from another country, due to taxes and tariffs. You don’t want to be surprised by extra import fees.
3. Always pick “Check out as a Guest”, unless you shop with that merchant a lot. They don’t need to store your personal information.
4. Look for FREE SHIPPING, and if possible free returns. It’s an added bonus making you want to shop with that merchant.
5. Look for a good return policy. AGAIN. Cannot state this enough. It will save you $$ and very few headaches in the end. HAPPY SHOPPING!!
