Many times same product is offered by many sellers, so in that case it is equally important to check seller rating and reviews. As bad sellers take lots of time in deliveries and it’s hard to process returns with them.

Always try to find brand own stores on websites to buy products, as they can offer best price and latest products. Also brand stores are quick in deliveries and return.
7 # 3 Policies:-
Always check return policies of brand and sellers as both have their own return/refund policies. Many sellers only offer replace policy in which they can only send a replacement but no refund, we should avoid these types of sellers. Also check time window of return longer is always better.
8 # Offers:-
Especially when buying expensive products make sure you start exploring at least 2 month in advance as you can save big by buying in offers, festival discounts, and limited time deals. Most of websites run these deals at least once per 2 months.
