Help in avoiding online order slow- or no-shows
The Federal Trade Commission has gotten reports from consumers who didn’t get their orders as expected- or never at all. Here are some tips to make sure you have a good online shopping experience this holiday season:
- Before you buy, confirm the online seller’s physical address and phone number
- Look carefully at the shipping date before you order
- If possible, pay with a credit card
- Get tracking numbers to see where your stuff is in the shipping process. Also, consider having your items held at the post office or delivered to a family member or neighbor in case you’re not home.
