Video about internet shopping
Good evening. Tonight we present information for consumers about
shopping online. And since you're on the internet already, I'll
explain in a way that you computer people can understand.
Many business websites look professional and
trustworthy......but online, things aren't always what they seem.
Look down, back up, where are you, you're on a boat.
When you buy something online...Two tickets to that thing you
love, look again...remember if things go sour you've still got
consumer rights. I'm on a horse. Keep an eye out for sites that are
suspicious, unprofessional, or make unrealistic promises. You don't
want a nasty surprise. There are protections for online
Businesses that supply to Australian consumers must comply with
the Australian Consumer Law. That means if something goes wrong you
have the right to a repair, replacement or refund. But you may
struggle to get a resolution if you get in hot water online.
Especially if the seller is overseas and you need to take action.
Shopping over the web is less likely to end in tears...Leave
Britney alone!...if you know what your rights are online. You deal
Ask yourself - are you confident the product will be of
acceptable quality? What is it? An old banana. An old banana? Isn't
that exciting? No. And that you'll get adequate customer
service...Yayayaya...both before...Ow, Charlie! Ow!...and after you
buy. Charlie! That really hurt.
Also, think about how difficult it will be to return the item if
something unexpected happens. Or the product...Never gonna give you
up...isn't as described. And if you do decide to shop
online......make sure you tread carefully. Come shop, with us.
Does the seller display credible contact details? If you look
for contact details and...Can't see anything....be wary. Take a
closer look at the refunds and returns policy. Some businesses
say...No no no no no no no. But other online retailers happily
offer reasonable terms. A bit of research can prevent you going
round in circles. I'm on a boat.
Check the seller's shipping, delivery and insurance charges so
you aren't hit with any hidden costs. Double rainbow! Oh my god.
Check reviews from other buyers to see if they're... Ohhhh, heh
heh, wow!...satisfied, or...[buzzer sound, cat screeching]
Remember, some online reviews aren't the real thing... ...so
check a few different sites. Oooh, you're so smart. And finally, if
you do use your credit card online...Keep it secret, keep it safe.
If the payment options seem unusual investigate further before you
proceed. Oppan Gangnam Style. There's more information about
shopping safely online and your consumer rights at
Taking simple precautions for online shopping will give you a
better chance of being. I dreamed a dream in time gone
by...pleasantly surprised...Living for the gas...happy with your
purchase...Whoo! ...and, that. I really don't understand the
internet. Good luck, shoppers.
