Buying online has advantages and some risks

How To Buy online And Sleep Peacefully | Before buying online
Make sure you always keep the operating system updated
Normally, the automatic update function is activated, but in case of doubt check this option, since the operating systems are updated as security problems are discovered in them.
Of course have your antivirus and antispyware installed and updated
As I mentioned in my article about the tools to protect your computer, there are very good and free ones.
Use Firewalls (Firewalls)
Win XP, Win Vista and Win 7 already include their own free Firewall and it has been improving in each version.
Do not trust emails with great offers and special discounts
Especially if you have not asked for anything, if you have not registered in the pages to receive offers, if the email is from an unknown person, remember this
“The cheap, it’s expensive!”
You already made the decision to buy online then
Do not make purchases online from a third-party PC or from an open WiFi network
Never in cybercafés, libraries or similar sites, never from the Wi-Fi networks of establishments that provide this service to their clients, as it could put your banking or financial information at risk.
To get experience, I recommend you buy from well-known and trusted sites such as eBay, Amazon, Fnac, Privalia, Groupon, etc.
You can also buy on other sites of course … but make sure, who is behind the page where you want to buy, that the company or person inspires your confidence.
Find out who you are dealing with
Anyone (you know the good ones or the bad ones) could create a virtual store under any name.
Verify contact information make sure you can ask questions and solve problems.
If you are browsing and suddenly request your financial data online or via email do not answer the email or click on any link.
Companies that sell legitimately online will not ask for personal or financial information through these means.
Make sure of the product you are buying
Read the description of the product very carefully. Check the fine print to be sure about the status of the product you’re buying.
Be very clear about the final cost
Some companies include shipping costs, processing etc. in the price and others add it at the end when you have already decided the purchase, this usually varies the price you think you are going to pay for the products.
Do not buy in places where the form of payment is sending cash or make money transfers.
Check how the return policies, purchase cancellations, dates, and delivery methods are
If at the end when the product arrives you decide that it is not your satisfaction, you can return the item and get the money back?
If you return the product who will pay the shipping costs?
You can find out how your shipment is going?
In many places they give you a code to track your order, to control the estimated delivery dates.
Last call to embark and buy online!
Ok, you’re here, you found your offer, you verified everything and you decide to buy
Before making the payment, make sure that the site is a secure site
In the address bar you will have to see a closed padlock and before the web address, the acronym https instead of the usual HTTP the s at the end indicates that it is a secure site.
Use a credit or debit card
Advise yourself at the bank that issued it to you about your anti-fraud plans. It is better than the card you are using has a reduced credit limit, there are even cards that only serve to buy online.
In case the flies … check your accounts regularly
If you notice that there is a strange transaction, contact your bank to stop that payment and change your card number.
All these tips are what I follow myself (I buy a lot online and never had problems).
They are also what I give to my students, friends, and family.
I hope you become an online buyer, but they act with caution.
