Not only Snapdeal but many other e-commerce shoppers have complained of receiving counterfeit products online. Amid the Covid-19 outbreak where buying online is not only an option but also a compulsion so we need to be sure of what we are buying. But the question is how?

From Branded Perfumes to Branded shoes, Branded clothes to beauty products we have come across so many reviews and complaints of the buyers where they have a complaint of receiving fake or pirate products online. Buying a fake product is not only costing you loss in term of money but sometimes there can be health hazards also. Have you ever wondered what might be in your fake perfume? Are you sure your fake battery won’t explode when you are using it? Are your fake sunglasses really protecting your eyes?

The problem is not limited to one e-commerce platform or one country but fake products are disguise customers all over the world.

The problem of fake goods is mostly faced in the marketplace model and in the branded items. So let’s find out how to avoid buying fake products online.

8 WAYS TO AVOID BUYING FAKE PRODUCTS ON ONLINE SHOPPING WEBSITES

  • Check for Consumer right on the seller website :  Return, exchange and refund policies are way of protecting the rights of the buyers once they have purchased the product. Every e-commerce platform should provide confidance to the buyers that their voice would be herad if they they felt cheated. We should always try to shop from website who are flexible and have easy exchange and return
  •  Is the Price too good to be true: Buyers get trapped into lucarative pricing startegy of the sellers where they are trying to honeytrap . Sometimes we all see a massive discount on certain branded products and end up buying a fake one. We should always ask ourself is this price too good to be true. A product priced at Rs. 5000 and website is offering them at 80% discount so can this be true. We should not stop using our commen sense and questioning ourselves that am I buying a counterfieft or pirated product.
  • Look for the brand website: Fake or counterfiet products can be identified if monitored closely. There could be a manufacturing or labeling defect or the sewing pattern will be not uniform. To be double sure you can check the image, description  of the product with the original brand website. Now days every brand is online and they are directly selling the items. So you can zoom in the images to look for tagging, packaging, and in Mobile you can check for IMEI number to authenticate it.
  • Search other customer reviews: Use Internet search tools to check whether other consumers have left any good or bad comments about the seller. Read these comments carefully, and keep a critical eye. Excessively positive review? The same person reviewing the same product on several websites? Review too vague? Be careful! It could be a review left by the webshop itself, which is, of course, illegal.
  • Pay with secured means of payment: When you pay for a purchase on the Internet, you need to follow 3 golden principles: Always pay on a secured payment page (displaying a padlock or key logo, and whose URL address begins with “https”), Pay by credit card by preference, as you may be able to recover your money from the credit card issuer in case of fraud and avoid direct money transfers
  • Check the picture of the product  : Do the pictures shown on the webshop look unprofessional? Is there something wrong with the logo or does the background look strange? Are photos low-quality? Is it impossible to zoom in? Is only part of the item displayed? These may be indicators of a website that is selling fake products.
  • Assess the general layout of the website: Most of the websites selling counterfeit products do not look very professional: they often have spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, poor quality pictures of the products being sold or of the logos for the means of payment, etc. The fact that the web­site is in your language doesn’t mean that it’s actually based in your country. Do not trust websites whose URL links the name of a brand with terms such as“cheap”, “outlet” or other expressions suggesting low prices.
  • Check the official website for authorized and black listed sellers: Most of the major brands only give specific retailers their authorization to sell their products. Ordering products from those retailers guarantees that you are buying original products. Go to the official website of the brand to check whether the webshop you are visiting is recognized as an authorized retailer, and is not black-listed. For e.g Huda beauty has mentioned it’s authorized sellers in India so if you buy from any other website you might end up buying a spurious Huda beauty product.

Tata to launch e-commerce site to beat Amazon and Reliance

Tata Group on one of the most reputed business groups in India is planning to launch an e-commerce portal similar to Amazon and Flipkart. Recently Reliance has also announced its e-commerce portal and just finished raising more than $20 billion from investors, including Facebook Inc. and Google, for its digital services platform, while Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has bet $6.5 billion on growth in the world’s second-most populous country.

So this can be big news for the buyers as they can be ready to get more shopping platforms and of course better service. Big Indian Groups like Tata and Reliance entering the market can give confidence even to the people who are skeptical about shopping online. Since they are operating here for long so they know the customer perception and their expectation. All this can be an added advantage to them.

Tata group based e-commerce platform which will be a marketplace like Amazon will be App-based and build by TCS. Apart from this current project, Tata group is also operating it’s brand based online shopping websites like Tanishq and Westside. Cliq online shopping portal by Tata Group is already operational since the last 5 years and is offering products in various categories.

This could be an interesting competition because the group already enjoys the confidence of the buyers and other established players like Amazon and Flipkart have excelled themselves in terms of product sourcing and Customer service.

Tata group has yet not made announcement regarding the categories they will offer but it will be an interesting thing to watch as Tata group is an household name and offers a host of products and services. A group which is not only a well-established consumer brand but also an industrial brand which symbolizes quality, value for money and trust.

5 ways to shop online faster

Landing on a shopping site and selecting the right product sometime becomes cumbersome and we leave the shopping site without making any purchase. It’s true that too much options can also complicate your life. We see so many products listed in any category and we get confused and get tired of seeing the product and after some time all looks as same, this is especially true for any fashion product.

Let’s find out how we can quickly complete our online shopping and get back to our work.

Online Shopping Hacks : How to shop online faster

  • Know your budget : Most of the time we know how much amount we can spend on a particular, so we have budget in mind (unless it is a window shopping). To complement this Shopping sites have price filters, use them.
    • Most of the either it is on left or right side of the page.
    • You can select a range or enter you value manually. By selecting this you are eliminating the products which you are not interested in.
  • Use Sort by option : Most of the time, by default Popularity is selected. As per your requirement you can select what’s new if you are interested in knowing new addition on the website or Discount if you are interested in discounted products.
  • Make Brand selection : If you are interested in a particular Brand/Brands, then select it will further narrow down you search and can shop faster.
    • It is helpful when you are buying Home appliances, Mobile phones, Apparel and footwear. Plus it is also of help when you are looking for any specific brand product while buying anything on internet 🙂
    • I personally use this while shopping apparel and footwear.
  • Select other option : Additional filters like color if you buying any clothes, Language if you are buying any book or technical features if you are buy any electronics products can also be of great help. They can help you eliminate the unwanted product and let you reach the deep sea of shopping.
  • Save products for later use : When you like any product and are not sure whether to buy or not, then save the product( option is there in almost all shopping website near product image). So the next time you just need to save product option and click add to bag and make payment. You don’t need to do the homework again to select the product.
