I shop online from groceries to DSLR online (ie, 3RS product to 70,000Rs).
I would not have purchased the same from vicky.in or myself.in unless i read many positive reviews.
Always check the pricing in different websites. If it is maximum of 20-30rs difference in a reputed store, buy from reputed store than risking your money.
Check the reviews if possible. While checking the reviews in mouthshut or any review site, make sure the person has reviewed more than 3-4 to believe that. Or, it may be the company guys creating different id to post the reviews.
I hardly order cash on delivery (COD) as they do not allow you to open and see the content before you pay.
I bought the same leather cleaner from local shop for 400RS (MRP -500). There was no seal either.
There are frauds and genuine sellers on online. You need to understand them. I have got cheated once/twice from ebay and always got the refund from ebay.
Got cheated from groupon once (CAR vaccum cleaner) and i never bothered for a refund. The pic had CE mark, but the product reached did not have CE mark. They were ready to refund. I was so busy that i didnt worry much to pack and send it back (i am the culprit).
And, importantly - The product photos looks so misleading in some items. The actual product may be different. Suggest you to always check in different sites before buying.
PS: You could have posted a review either in mouthshut or posted here rather than creating a blog dedicated for them. VICKY.IN - Reviews | online | Ratings | Free
