Safe Online Shopping Guide:


Make Sure Your Details Are Protected When Shopping Online

The single most important thing to watch for when shopping online is the closed padlock at the bottom of the screen. Always look for a closed padlock sign secure at the bottom of the screen. It shows that your details are protected when being sent.

You will find not only have we rated every shop here at THESHOPWEB to make your online shopping experience easy but we have also indicated whether each shop offers a secure online ordering system.
 
By following a few simple tips, it is possible to shop safely online.

KEY SAFE SHOPPING TIPS
  • Websites: Use ones you know or which are recommended.
  • Records: Keep a copy of what you've ordered, plus the supplier's confirmation message.
  • Quality: Your high street consumer rights apply online.
  • Cooling off: In many cases in the EU the law lets you change your mind and get a refund within 7 working days of the delivery.
Your high street rights apply online

Your high street rights apply equally when buying over the internet as when shopping on the high street. So remember, goods must be of satisfactory quality and adverts and descriptions must not be misleading. BUT with auctions and private sales the general rule is "buyer beware".
 
Remember always look for a closed padlock sign secure at the bottom of the screen when shopping online. It shows that your details are protected when being sent.
