1. When shopping online, choose the best shipping policy. Often companies offer expedited shipping. However, often getting the product one day earlier can cost you as much as twice the normal shipping price. Therefore, if you can wait on the product to arrive using normal shipping instead of expedited shipping, choose standard shipping to save money.
2. If you want to buy a used product online, learn more about the vendor first. You should visit their profile to check out reviews published by other shoppers who bought products using this seller. Usually do not hesitate to contact the seller to ask a few questions concerning the product you are considering.
3. When you enjoy the comfort of frequent shopping online, it's extremely important to keep changing the passwords you use for every account. Every couple of weeks or so, make up a whole new password to your bank and also the shopping sites directly. Use abstract words, combined with numbers and other odd characters for your strongest passwords.
5. Always save copies of your orders and receipts from online purchases. Many stores will redirect you to a page after you've submitted an order detailing exactly what was bought, customer information, the prices, etc. You should either print a duplicate of this or save a copy to your computer in case any issues arise before the end of the return period. Make sure to save any emails concerning your items' status or correspondence with the company regarding your orders, too.
