Online shopping makes it easy and convenient to search for — and buy — the must-have items on your wish list.
Here’s a quick cheat sheet:
• To make sure you’re getting the best deal, compare products. Do research online, check product comparison sites, and read online reviews.
• Confirm that the seller is legit. Look for reviews about their reputation and customer service, and be sure you can contact the seller if you have a dispute.
• Pay by credit card to ensure added protections, and never mail cash or wire money to online sellers.
• Keep records of online transactions until you get the goods.
