  • TIPS on How to buy SAFELY online

    to BUYERs.
    1. Read the description of the item for sale very well. If there are some descriptions left out, confirm with the seller.
    If you are buying cellphones or smartphones, ask if it is locked, unlocked, IMEI checks with carriers, etc.
    If you are buying branded items, ask for authenticity, receipts, etc.
    If you are buying used items, ask for clear description.
    If you are buying medicines or supplements, ask for expiry date and the source of the item. If it was purchased on the internet, there is possibility that it is fake. Not all will be fake, but there is always a possibility.
    If you are looking for peso or yen, be very very careful. There are no proofs here except for past transactions of the seller.
    If you are buying food, make sure to ask for ingredients because you might be allergic. Ask to be sent by cool delivery to avoid getting spoiled during delivery.
    Take note: purchasing used items can be tricky because description of item condition can be different per person.
    2. Ask for return and exchange policy. If proven fake, can it be refunded 100%, seller shoulders all shipping charges? Ask for return and exchange limit, how many days until you can claim refund or return. Recommendation is 1 week but this will depend on the seller.
    3. Ask for name, telephone and address. If sellers have nothing to hide, they should be able to give their contact information. Ex: Yahoo auctions japan sellers give their personal information when they contact their buyers.
    4. Call them to verify that telephone is correct. Use Google maps to verify that address is correct. Check their facebook account too.
    5. Check the user profile and see if they have any Feedback rating. If they have none, they have not completed any transaction in this forum.
    6. Search in forum if they have bad transactions. Search if they have completed transactions and investigate. If you found another buyer who has completed transaction with the seller, contact that buyer and ask if transaction proceeded smoothly.
    7. Check if the name of the person and the bank account is the same. If any information looks suspicious, trust your instincts!
    8. If the item has huge value, ask for COD. Do not hesitate to pay extra for COD because it is a sure guarantee that the item will arrive.
    9. Do not delete PM or text or email regarding the transaction. It will serve as proof in case of troubles. Also, keep records of the bank transfer proof.
    10. When the items arrive, check right away if it was the same item as described by the seller. If not, file a claim within the agreed refund and return policy. If you did not agree on this terms, then it is difficult to refund or return an item without any hard proofs or any agreement.

    If you have other advise or tips, please feel free to share..
    Even after following the tips above, there is still the possibility of encountering fake sellers, so always be very careful.

    If you encounter any problems, we will be happy to assist in any way we can.. But you must help yourself first by being a wise buyer!

    Let us make online shopping safe and fun!
    We can find good buys through online shopping but there are risks that comes with it. So buyers be careful and always trust your instincts!

        additional info lang po,

        check the feedback score of the user, nadisplay po ito sa ilalim ng avatar nya.
        kapag negative feedback, ibig sabihin mayroon siyang hindi maayos na transaksyon
        kapag positive feedback, ibig sabihin may mga maayos na transaksyon na sya before.

        basahin po ang mga comments para mas makilala mabuti ang inyong katransaksyon.

              hello angelkisses,salamat po sa tanong niyo

              madami pa kasi ang hindi familiar sa feedback score, kaya konti lang ang mga member na may score.
              sana mas madami pa ang gumamit nito para maipon ang mga scores ng good sellers at buyers.
              we encourage all buyers and sellers to give feedback sa mga nakatransaksyon na nila.

              nasa buyer na po kung nais niyong makipag trade sa seller na walang feedback, sa may positive o negative feedback.
              dinagdag po namin ang feedback para magbigay ng paraan para makita ang mga past transaksyon ng seller / buyer sa pamamagitan ng pag-iwan ng feedback.

              take note: positive feedback does not entirely mean na hindi magloloko ang isang seller o buyer, pero kung bibigyan ng halaga ang feedback ng lahat ng members, i guess mag-iingat ang bawat isa para hindi masira ang reputation nila.

              yoroshiku po.

                    reminder lang po sa mga buyers at sellers.

                    sa mga seller, wag masyadong mag overprice. may mga nakikita kaming sellers grabe mag overprice.
                    sa mga buyers, wag magiging biktima ng overpricing, mag investigate muna bago bumili. mahirap kumita ng pera, so spend it wisely.

                    yoroshiku sa lahat.
