As I've said on my previous post, before buying online you should have to consider the DO's and DON'ts of becoming an online shopper. Now let us start with the legitimacy of the site.
a) Make sure that the online store you are about to sign up is a legit one, how? well simply do a query, check the site Legal terms, Customer's feedback and other sites legal forms and requirements. If the site is new, well the risk is still there so it's up to you...if you find it good, then give it a go...much better to purchase in a more stable and trustworthy online store so you can buy with confidence.
b) After signing up, be sure to read Terms of Service, Frequently Asked Questions, even if find that lengthy paragraphs tiresome because there, all questions will be answered and this will be your guide to be a successful Online shopper, remember " Reading is Learning ".
c) Always read Seller's Feedback, if not present, then you should be cautious in dealing with the seller, I recommend to buy with the trusted seller based on their transactions made (feedback).
d) Be cautious in giving your Credit Card details, Bank Information and other financial information through internet, If you are paying online make it in a secure connection, if paying through Paypal be sure to click the payment confirmation once because as of my experience the payment confirmation message were delayed perhaps because of internet connection or what?, if this is the case just go directly to your account then check if it was already deducted and it is surely does.
e) After you purchased and paid through paypal then you are in the right track, because paying through paypal leaves you no worries, you were secured and can have your money back if in case you were scammed.
Being an Online shopper saves a lot of effort, it is comfortable since you're shopping in the comfort of our home and receive it in front of our door especially for us mom's who requires much of our time for our family so online shopping saves us more than money but our valuable time. Hope this simple pieces of advice helps from a simple full time house mom like me.
