6 points to keep in mind before making your purchase online

  1. Software update: The most important point that you should keep in mind before browsing the internet is to have all the software on your computer updated, by this I mean the operating system (Windows 7, Windows 8, Ubuntu, Mac, etc.), the antivirus, the browser you usually use (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome) and that you have a firewall installed on your system. If you use Windows, don’t worry because it comes with it by default. Updates are important because they prevent small bugs or security holes in your system.

  2. Investigate the company: It is something quite basic that we often forget, you have to investigate the company that appears on the website from which you are going to buy. Do a search for the company on the internet, look at comments made about it in forums. See if it exists on social media, look at the comments it has on social media.

  3. Check the company’s contact details on the website and make any queries, whether by phone, email or contact form, if there is no contact details, do not buy on that website. Check the company’s privacy policy, every company must have a page visible to users that specifies the legal points that apply to its users and their identifying data (Nif/Cif, name, company name, address, telephone, etc).

  4. The products must have photos and a description: It is very important that the products have photos so that you can get an idea of what it is like, if the product could be different from the one in the photo, it must be reflected in its description information, the which must be abundant.

  5. Check that the purchase and return policy is clear: It is important that it is reflected when purchasing a product how the transport will be carried out, the days it may take to arrive, who is responsible for when something happens and how to return it if you have repented.

  6. Check that when you are going to make the purchase you are on a secure page: This is done by looking in the address bar at the top of the browser, the address must begin with the letters https://, this means that the information What is sent at that moment is encrypted, this means that it cannot be understood if someone captures it.

  7. It must have different payment methods: It is important that the website has different payment methods, this is generally aimed at facilitating the purchase for people and highlights the concern on the part of the company towards the people who buy from it. , the greater the number of payment options, the more likely it is to meet the needs of the people who want to buy.
