Updated on October 21, 2014

4 Keys to Finding the Best Online Services

When purchasing products and services online, it is always a bit intimidating.

There are possibilities that the sites you visit may not be secure or official. Unfortunately not every business out there is looking out 100% for their customers.


1. Does the company have a legitimate and complete website?

To help prevent yourself from purchasing from secure and trusted online businesses your can easily help know how secure they are simply by making sure their website is complete. If you aren't sure what is needed to make a complete and legitimate website, these are a few of the major things to find on an online business' website.

A completed website means,

  • Multiple pages with full pricing and product listing.
  • Confirm the site has a refund policy posted near the pricing page.
  • Contact Information is valid and clearly displayed.
  • Check the address. Make sure the address listed on the business' website is legitimate and a real location. If an online company does not list full contact information on their website, there is a high chance that this is not a legitimate website. Valid contact information is one of the best ways to validate an online business.

  • Secure Trust Seal or Security Logo.
  • Check out or Shopping Cart page has a secure URL server. The way you can check to verify that a secure server is on a business' payment page, is too look for a "Lock" in the URL bar.
  • Do they have personal testimonials? Real companies will always have testimonials from customers and clients. If you are able to search and find legitimate customer testimonials for a company, you will be better able to confirm the business is legitimate. Also, reading the testimonials of previous clients let's you know what REAL people think about the company you are thinking of working with.
