Shopping online can have its pros and cons. Here're some tips:-
1 Know Your Product: Verify in detail the product name and model number. Don’t buy a Blackcherry if what you are looking for is a Blackberry!
2 Check the returns and refunds policy: Always stay away from sites that don’t offer an easy return or refund policy.
3 Reviews and Ratings: Carefully read the reviews of people who have already ordered and used the product or service.
4 Mode of Payment: Always choose the mode of payment that makes it easy for you to track your transactions through a statement. Example: Your shopping portal should give you options like debit or credit cards, net banking, cash on delivery etc.
5 Information Security: After you provide your credit card details, the shopping site should redirect you to a Verified by Visa or Mastercard Securecode page, where you would need to enter your Internet Pin or I-Pin.
