Shopping on the Internet can be economical and convenient. Shopping on the Internet is no less safe than shopping in a store or by mail.

The following tips will help you to shop safely:


Know who you're dealing with. Confirm the online seller's physical address and phone number in case you have questions or problems.


Know exactly what you're buying. Read the seller's description of the product closely, especially the fine print.


Know what it will cost as there may be hidden charges. Make sure you know the shipping and handling charges and the total charges.


Paying by credit card offers you better protection as the credit card company is part of the transaction.


Read the refund policies and delivery information.


Always print and save records of your online transactions.
