Share this page

Online shopping makes it easy and convenient to search for — and buy — the must-have items on your wish list. Before you buy, check out this video for tips on avoiding hassles, getting the right product at the right price, and protecting your financial information:

Here’s a quick cheat sheet:

  • Confirm that the seller is legit. Look for reviews about their reputation and customer service, and be sure you can contact the seller if you have a dispute.
  • Pay by credit card to ensure added protections, and never mail cash or wire money to online sellers.
  • Keep records of online transactions until you get the goods.

Help me make a difference

The post is written in very a good manner and it entails many useful information for me. I am happy to find your distinguished way of writing the post. Thanks.

In 2015 I started a layaway plan with JeenJewellers. My total price was $974.00. I paid $450.00 towards my ring. I decided to cancel my order and give them 14% that I agreed upon. And they sent me email saying that I'm not getting a refund. Is this legal? And what if anything can I do about it? And who to contact? I am at a loss over this.

The financing agreement or contract you signed with the seller should have information about what happens when you cancel an order. You could also contact your state Attorney General’s office to ask about your rights, or report the company.
