Here are some tips to help you complete your online purchase successfully:-
See customer testimonials- online shopping sites contain sections for customer feedback. Checking this part of the site/page will tell you what other buyers think of their purchase (satisfaction level). These are also known as "User Reviews". It can go wrong – use your best guess.
Scan Site/Page Quality- As with physical purchases, the quality of online stores also varies. This is where the site presents the boutiques / shops you enter. It doesn't have to be first class and is completely designed. As long as it's organized and user-friendly (very easy to navigate) you'll be fine. Scam sites are usually cluttered, poorly formatted, difficult to promote, and so on.
Look for "Security Stamp"- This is the logo you usually see on the homepage of a site. Like the "BBB Reliability Program" and/or "Hacker Safe" (to name a few) seals that any online shop can be proud of.
Guess Seller Profiles- Usually in the About Us section where you read about online shops. Verified sellers typically have a personal profile of the founder – with the full name and origin or history of business establishment, location, years of operation, etc.
