Most of us discovered the joy and convenience of shopping online during the past year. But are you truly maximizing your online shopping experience? Online shopping is now an indispensable part of our daily lives, and we owe it to ourselves to develop a better understanding of online shopping platforms and services. Our hard-earned money is at stake, after all!
However, navigating e-commerce platforms and services can get overwhelming. To guide you on your journey to becoming a smarter shopper, Shopee Cares PH, Shopee’s new dedicated customer service platform, shares tips regarding common issues online shoppers deal with, in areas such as logistics, safety, and authenticity.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
