In today’s blog post, we figured we’d offer you a quick tip to help you when purchasing ANYTHING online. Buying things from online stores can be difficult since you are buying something without being able to see or touch it in person. There are a couple ways you can safeguard yourself and your purchase before you make any sort of payment to a company you know nothing about. The answer is simple: research the company first! Make sure to check into the company’s return policy as well as user reviews from people that have purchased from the company before. A good place to check is good ol’ Google. A company with a 5 star rating from Google is probably a safe bet. Additionally, one of the tried and true reputation checkpoints is the Better Business Bureau. A company with an A Rating from the BBB is also probably a safe company to purchase from.
