Online shopping has been rampant in recent years. You just name your needed product or service and there is a big chance its available online. Car parts and components are not an exemption. There are many sites and platforms but one need be vigilant to just get the best quality car accessories. This applies to all internet transactions where caution is the key. How do you ensure you are safe and which supplier to trust?
Check their brand
Are they a well-known brand? They should have a good reputation by first having a registered company, a working customer care helpline which you can call and make some enquiries on products and services and then gauge the feedback. Also check if they have a business mailing address, company social media profiles, and finally go through the online customer reviews to see their comments.
Check their website
Is the website professional? This is a key point since a professional website will reflect seriousness in delivery as time and resources were spent creating it. There should be a page showing delivery information and must clearly provide information on the company’s refunds and return policy. The website product page should have photographs and well detailed specifications.
Check the payment system
Is it secure? More care is required at this stage to avoid unnecessary money loss. Ensure your supplier is using a payment system that is secure and you have either used it or you can fully trust. This payment system includes PayPal among others you might be aware of. When doing the transaction be keen to use a secure connection so as to encrypt your data and prevent any interception of your credit card details. NB: Never disclose your credit information via mail or photograph
Finally check their policy
A supplier who needs to protect their reputation and earn customer trust will have taken care of the customer after service or product purchase. There should be a refund and return policy within a specified time if you are not satisfied with product or service.
