1. Check product description: As the customers cannot physically touch and feel the products while buying it using a e-commers website,product description is the answer to the queries like what fabric is it made from? User instruction or care instruction,Size,Quantity and Expiry date etc..

While most of the buyers focus on product images and technical things it is equally important to look at product description.A well explained product  description describes the product benefits and convinces the customer to buy what they need.

Most of the e-commerce websites make genuine efforts to post unique and attractive descriptions for the product pages, some sellers forget the content entirely and there are some who take a short-cut and copy all the descriptions from manufacturers sites or from different online websites. So it s is buyers responsibility to understand the product description before placing order and disputes for successful ruturn of the product is mainly on the basis of this, so Don't Neglect it.

Keep in mind, if you are not satisified with the product description don't buy it. Have quaries? then raise it to the customer care of the website and get the clarity from seller before placing the order.
