Check out customers reviews for the product you want to buy. Get to know what other people who bought the product are saying about the product. Their reactions, impression and everything.

#2 For clothing / shoes etc confirm your size

If you are buying clothing like shirts, trousers, shoes confirm the size and the type of material used. Look for product details in this case.

#3 Check sellers rating

At Least most of the online shops I know have this 5 star thing which we call rating. It gives you information on how customers who have bought the product you are intending to buy rate the seller.

At least if there’s up to 3 star there then it means the seller is doing well in terms of customer’s satisfaction.

#5 Check estimated delivery time

Human beings naturally like to complain. Make sure you check the estimated delivery time of the product you are buying when checking out before you start laying unnecessary complaining that it’s taking to long to be delivered.

Some online stores also support package tracking. For instance, if you are using Jumia you can actually track your product and know when it’s going to be delivered.

Make sure you do these things before you check out. Thanks for reading.
