2) Ask questions about the product quality, manufacturing details , specifications etc. If seller is giving you sensible answers, he knows his stuff and you are probably dealing with credible business.
3) Do your homework. Use Internet and GOOGLE to save $$$$. Research as much as you can and it will save you money and get you best deal.
4) Cheaper price is not always the best buy. Please remember in this day and age you only get what you pay ( well most of the time).

There are lot of backyard sellers who undercut genuine sellers to make quick profits and then move on to selling something else leaving their customers to fend for themselves. . These people tarnish the image of genuine sellers and erode customer confidence for on-line shopping.
