Also now every small small things are available online even you can buy vegetables, milk and all your daily needs online.  This makes our life easy but sometimes people fall in scam or fraud.  As we know everything has its good side and bad side ,so better to prepare yourself according to the situation and take major precautions..  There are few things to remember while shopping online to avoid any kind of issues.  Let's talk about it in detail. .

Things to remember  while Shopping Online..

1 - Go with trusted sites :

On the safe note, always go with trusted sites for shopping. Else you can check the new site's review first, and then try with small purchases initially.   There are new shopping sites which shows attractive offers all the time to attract the customers but in real they are fraud.  So be aware of that.



2 - Compare price :

When you are buying any product from any site, never forget to compare the price of the same product on other sites to avail a great price.  There are also sites which helps you to see price of the same product on different sites on one page . So please keep that in mind.  Specially if you are buying gadgets, electronics item or any high priced product, this will be really helpful for you..

3 - Read product description thoroughly :

Before buying any product online it is good to read the product description thoroughly to avoid any kind of last minute confusion. Every product available online has their product description, specification, usage section below and it is better to check that while adding to cart.

4 - Read reviews :

Like we read product description, it is also equally important to read the reviews too. Reviews with products pictures are more helpful in choosing right product.  Always check that before buying anything.  If you are buying anything from any international website, then checking reviews, ratings, pictures are more required because most of the time we do fall under scam through international sites only.

5 - Check Seller's rating : 

There are sites where you will get same products from different sellers. In that case , you need to check seller's details and reviews too to check their professionalism.

6 - Check shipping cost of any kind of hidden cost : 

Some products has additional shipping charges included and also some has hidden charges which appear at the time of payment, so better to check that beforehand.

7 - Check return policy : 

Not every product is returnable or exchangeable.  So it's good to check out that beforehand . Always read the terms and conditions properly to avoid any kind of hassle during our after shopping.

8 - Choose sites where your card details are secured :

For online shopping we need to add our card details there for easy payment.  So always choose secure payment method . Otherwise you can go with COD option.  But not every site has COD  option, do keep that in mind.

After being a mom, I hardly get time to go outside for shopping specially, hence I normally prefer online shopping these days. So these are the points I do keep in my mind before shopping online and trust me these helps me a lot to save my money and time.
