The benefits of doing our shopping online are numerous, especially with the sales. For a start you get to avoid the crush and the rush as people stamp all over each other to get the best bargains. 

You also don’t have to leave your home, particularly convenient if you’re less able to get on a bus or train into town or just don’t fancy facing the weather.

Your purchases also have greater protection, as you can return anything you bought (unless it has been customised) up to 14 days after you receive it. On the street there’s no law saying a shop has to give you a refund.

All good so far. But there are also greater opportunities for you to lose your money. These are easily avoidable if you follow a few simple rules.
