How to safely shop for rings on the web
The internet has made shopping much easier than before. Here are some safety tips for shoppers.
1) Research the seller
The first thing you should do is research who the seller is. How long have they been on the market? Is there a phone number? A physical address? Get in touch with the seller before you order. If there is no phone number or address, or if you don’t get a response, it’s best to choose someone else.
2) Check the website
Does the webshop have a secure SSL connection? How long has the site been around? Who owns the website?
Check what customers have to say about their experience with the merchant: it’s interesting to read reviews left by people who have already shopped at the online store. Pay much attention to what they write about prices, delivery times, quality and customer service.
4) Product description
Always read the product description carefully. If you only look at pictures, you may miss many details. If the product description is not complete with specifications about materials, it can be completely wrong. Be wary of Asian websites that sell “gold rings” at ridiculous prices. The gold rings in question are only gold-coloured rings, not real gold.
5) From where will your rings be delivered?
If you buy rings outside the European borders, you are importing them when you get them delivered. Then you may have to pay VAT, import and customs duties. It does not happen when you shop with us. Rings of Sweden manufactures and ships the rings you order in Europe. We offer free shipping within Europe and send all shipments by registered mail. Delivery can take between 5-14 business days when the rings are made and ready to ship.
6) Terms and conditions
Read the online store’s terms and conditions; Delivery time, warranty, shipping, etc. At Rings of Sweden, we take great care to ensure that all terms and conditions are crystal clear. If you have any questions at all, we are always happy to answer you. Do not hesitate! Contact us by mail or phone. Our customer service is at your service Monday to Friday.
7) Payment methods – Pay safely
Use a reliable and secure payment system. Most online merchants allow you to use traditional bank transfers and electronic payment methods such as Klarna, PayPal or credit cards like Visa and MasterCard.
