Hint number one is always try to buy from merchants which you know, or which have got branches in the high street. Especially those stores which have been trading for a long time. These stores will mostly have good online business and online shops too. The reason for that is they will care about their brand name and look after their customers. You can check merchant's reputation by asking your friends too.
Another hint for online shoppers. Go for those websites which have got safe transaction systems installed and are easy to use.
