Guide to Buying Safely Online


shop safely logo


After 5+ years of being a successful online reseller, 3Gstore has gained a lot of experience in making the online shopping experience as safe as possible for our customers. Unfortunately, not all online transactions are as safe as others, and we'd like to share our knowledge so that online shoppers understand what makes their transactions secure (or not) and what you can do to make sure your online purchases are safe!

This guide is generic and can be applied to just about any website that accepts payments for any sort of goods or services. We recommend that anyone purchasing online educate themselves and use these steps when purchasing with an online reseller for the first time - whether it's a major well-trusted shopping site or a brand new online store.

There are 7 tools that an educated online consumer should use to verify that your online purchases are safe:

  1. Look for the green bar at the top of your browser (why a SSL EV Certificate is crucial)
  2. Confirm the domain name when checking out - does it change?
  3. Utilize the WhoIs domain name tool to see how long the domain has been registered
  4. Check independent online rating companies like Google, Reseller Ratings, Bizrate, BBB, etc
  5. Is the site using an independent site to make sure they are secure from hackers?
  6. Google the phone number
  7. If anything seems amiss, use Google Check out or Paypal
