If you are on a website which has a poor design, weird address and get multiple windows then leave the site immediately and close the browser. It could be a illegitimate website.

Shipping charges

Always check the shipping charges of the product. Sometimes we end up paying more for the shipping than the product. Return policy

Always check the return policy of any company. If the product is defective or a wrong product is delivered then will they pay for the shipping to return the product?

Bank account number

Rights

Products can be returned if they are not shipped on time or you can also demand a refund.

Never buy products from Email specials unless you requested it from the company. It’s not necessary that the product must have come from a real company. So avoid spam mails.

Check the product properly

Always check the product properly before ordering for it. Sometimes the product seems different than the one which we see on the website.

Credentials

A lot of online shoppers don’t check the credentials of the webs
