Shop from Renowned Hubs
When you are opting for online shopping; it is safer to choose the hubs which are followed by a large number of customers. The renowned names can be trusted confidently as compare to those ‘never heard’ names of online shopping websites.

Keep Record of All Your Purchase
We all hate to keep record of the things BUT keeping record of your online purchase can help you to keep track of the orders that you placed but were never delivered. You can keep a printout of your purchase or can save the receipts in your computer for future referencing.

Look for the Security Icons
An unbroken key or closed lock in your browser window is a sign of security. This ensures that the website is safe but if you see the broken key or open lock sign; the website can be unsafe to explore. Beside with this simple trick; you must also ensure that the online shop website address begins with "https" instead of "http" when you are providing personal information, such as credit card details. This shows that you are in a secure area of the online shop.
