What do other consumers say about the business or the product/ service? Does the business provide legitimate contact details? 3. Make sure you choose what's right for you - What is the quality like? Does the product meet Australian standards? What's the business' customer service like? 4. Keep your personal details private and secure -- does the business have a privacy policy in place? Only pay via secure payment methods on web addresses starting with 'https' and a closed padlock symbol 5. If a problem arises -- how easy will it be to right a wrong? What do you have to do to return the product? Does the business have a good complaints resolution process in place?
