Safe Online Shopping Tips to Become a Smart Shopper
1. Do due diligence to avoid shopping mishaps
Before you click add to cart, remember to always double or even triple-check if the item or seller has good reviews and ratings. Trust your gut and keep reading if you feel like the reviews are too good to be true. You do not want to waste your hard-earned money on faulty products or shady sellers. For guaranteed safe and hassle-free shopping, patronize Shopee Mall official stores where products are 100% authentic, with a 7-day free return and free shipping (with a minimum spend).
2. Always conduct transactions in-app
Stay alert and protect yourself from potential scams! Report messages that request personal information such as your Facebook page and email address, or ones that redirect you to another website to complete the purchase. Staying in-app keeps you protected from any fraudulent transactions.
3. Do not forget to protect your personal data
Excited to open that much-awaited package? Before you enjoy your purchase, remember to properly discard the shipping label, which contains your personal information. Erase any sensitive info with a permanent marker, or, even better, shred it. Otherwise, your details could end up in the wrong hands.
4. Check your cash-on-delivery (COD) order’s tracking number
Before you pay for that COD order, double check if your order’s tracking number matches the one on the parcel. Do not accept or pay for the order if the numbers don’t match. If you live with family members or roommates, make it a habit to inform them of any pending deliveries as well.
You can also give ShopeePay a try! Instead of choosing COD as your mode of payment, ShopeePay is a great alternative. All you have to do is top up your ShopeePay wallet and select it as your payment method upon checking out! Plus, you can enjoy exclusive ShopeePay vouchers too!
