GToday, the internet is a technological miracle that we use in all areas of our lives, and when we want to get things done quickly and easily. Undoubtedly, shopping is at the top of our actions via the Internet.

So what should we pay attention to when shopping online?
Undoubtedly, security is the first thing that needs attention. We must check the security certificate to see if a site is secure, it is better not to shop if the site does not use an SSL certificate.
Secure shopping sites must have a telephone and full address. The address and telephone information of the site where you will shop can be on the main page, as well as in the contact, about us or contact us sections.
It is very important that the site where you will shop is accessible. You should be able to find an interlocutor who will answer and solve a question or problem you have before and after shopping. The fact that shopping sites using Live Support are instantly available is a big plus.
Return and Change Conditions
Another thing you should check before completing your order is the return and change conditions. When you want to return or change the product, you should definitely review the return & change conditions to avoid any surprises.
And finally, we recommend you to use it if the site where you will shop offers the opportunity to shop with 3D Secure. With 3 D Secure, you will first be directed to your bank's site to confirm the transaction, then you can complete your order with the code sent to your mobile phone.
