Online Shopping - Company Information

As online shopping grows, there are many more marketplaces than just the national retailer websites. If you find a deal that is too good to be true, you might be right. However, if you want to check up on the website owner, you should attempt to contact the company by phone and e-mail to make sure their contact information is up to date. If nothing is posted on their website, you can also check the Whois database and look for the publicly available contact information for the domain name. If you get someone to answer on the other end, ask a couple of questions about how long they have been in business and their return policy, so that you get more comfortable to do business with them online. If you cannot find any valid contact information, be cautious.
