BEFORE YOU SHOP ONLINE!

OnGuardOnline.gov provides practical tips from the federal government and the technology industry to help you be on guard against internet fraud, secure your computer, and protect your personal information.
Quick Facts

Shopping on the internet can be economical, convenient, and no less safe than shopping in a store or by mail. To help keep your online shopping experience a safe one:

  • Know who you’re dealing with. Confirm the online seller’s physical address and phone number in case you have questions or problems.
  • Know exactly what you’re buying. Read the seller’s description of the product closely, especially the fine print.
  • Know what it will cost. Factor shipping and handling — along with your needs and budget — into the total cost of the order.
  • Pay by credit or charge card, for maximum consumer protections.
  • Check out the terms of the deal, like refund policies and delivery dates.
  • Print and save records of your online transactions.
