 Here are several things to consider when shopping online for any special occasion.

Pay by credit card and Protect your passwords, credit cards offer greater consumer protections. Never send cash! If you pay by credit card, your transaction is protected by the Act Fair Credit Billing. This limits your liability for unauthorized charges
only $ 50.

Understand the return policy: To determine the Companys return and refund policies before making any order. In general, anything that is recorded or personalized in any way, do not qualify for the stores return policy. Some countries do not have return policies the same as we do here in North America, so you know where to shop and always read the return policy, if any.

Buy Safely: When online, look for a symbol of a key or padlock in the bottom of the browser window to make sure that your transmission is protected. Always enter the url manually to your browser instead of clicking on links through email messages to ensure maximum safety.

Print all records of transactions: Be sure to print or save electronically records related to online transactions. This will help you keep track of shipping dates, shipping and other details of your transaction. Have as much information as possible including names, titles and phone numbers in case of
disputes.

File a Complaint
If you suspect the business may have broken the law, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. You can call the FTC toll-free at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or file a complaint online at www.ftc.gov. or inform your local Better Business.

Check the privacy policy Sites: The Companys privacy policy to know what personal information the company is collecting, why and how the information will be used. Be careful if you are asked to provide personal information like your Social Security number or other personal information bank account to make a transaction. When you shop online, you should not have to provide confidential information such as your Social Security number if they do, shop elsewhere.
