Things to avoid while online shopping

Online shopping is a very popular nowadays. This is because it is easy and convenient. If you want a designer bag from abroad, it can be yours just with a single click at your doorstep without leaving the comfort of your home. You can avail yourself of amazing discounts on your favorite products and enjoy online shopping. People want the product to be delivered on time, the quality should be as expected, the item has the proper warranty, and the item can be returned if there is an issue. But shopping online can be a curse. Several people shop online and don’t get the product they ordered. Many times people go through a horrible online shopping experience.

Buying from unknown companies:

If you don’t buy from a famous brand, or the one from which you’ve previously done online shopping in Pakistan, take some safety measures to make sure you can be confident of a trustworthy transaction. Be confident that the brand records the address and phone number, and call the customer service number to find the answer to any question that may disturb you, for instance, how the company handles its return policy, refund, and customer complaints.

Unsecure Shopping websites:

You can get many hints about security just by examining the company’s website address. For instance, have a look at URLs that starts with HTTPS, not with HTTP, as the additional specifies that it is a safe website. Also, evaluate the retailer’s privacy policy to check if they are created to save your credit card’s data or other confidential details. Keep in mind that Internet scammers frequently use a name which is like a trustworthy brand, but they modify the spelling, or they misspell alphabets in their website name. If anything seems suspicious, don’t purchase from that website.

Measurements problem:

During physical shopping, we have the choice to try out clothes before we purchase them. But when we shop online, we have to believe the given measurements. Several online companies offer free return or exchange policies, but still, you have to give a shipping amount. Prior to adding the stuff to your cart, be sure to verify how much it would expense to dispatch your order. It’s an inconvenience that makes it time taking to have the article you want when you have already checked the sizing. Never rely on “small, medium, and large” measurement buttons. These sizes may differ from country to country, gender, and even for the brands. Yet the sizes according to numbers aren’t reliable. Most brands have sizes in inches or centimeters. Measure your measurements manually and shop accordingly. You’ll save your time and avoid frustrating exchange system and amount spent along the way.

Risk of using public WiFi

Don’t trust online public WiFi to fill in your remittance information during online shopping. This helps to increase the risk of the cyber security system. You don’t know if someone is making an effort to hack your gadget by means of the WiFi connection. Preferably, you should conclude your shopping transaction amount at your home with your personal wifi connection.

Don’t believe customer reviews:

Yes, public reviews present a lot of details about the product. Several consumers are kind enough to write down detailed feedback on the manufactured goods. Others give significant information that you won’t come across somewhere else. On the other hand, you may come across partial or manipulated reviews. As an alternative to providing you the valuable information, they are may be soft-selling the thing. Don’t trust everything you come across in the client review section. Compare as many reviews as you can.
