The points raised and suggestions given are very pertinent. In fact I myself is a victim of inferior and under sized products. I purchased a few months back few items from Times on line, which turned out to be under sized and was of a inferior quality. Also the photos shown on line and in advertisement were quite contrary to the actual product received by me. When I complained, I was only made to make repeated calls but without any solution. I have almost lost faith in the Times group ads appearing their newspapers.

Advt. is always to attract the people. But some the companies have developed confidence in the mind of the people and many are attracted towards online purchase. The development of online product company get advantage of less establishment cost and consumer get at a cheaper rate. If some of the company tries to cheat the consumer, then it will not be far away when the consumers will keep distance from online purchase and their market will be taken over by someone else. more  
Most of the leading websites display multiple vendors for most of the products. It is better to prefer the vendor we are used to, even if other vendors offer slightly better rates. I for one, stick to known vendors. more  
Dear Deepjyoti, your suggestions are good but the real problem is that it is not the website which actually get the products ready for delivery. They have vendor networks who supplies goods. It is very important to see the rating of the supplier (if provided on the website) to get satisfactory product and do rate the vendor from whom you have ordered to help others make an opinion. more  
Another group/company I have a very low opinion of. I can not be specific why, because the incident was most probably more than 5 years old and I do not remember it. But I still can not stop myself from writing a few lines
moment the name pops out. Apart from legal actions, we should keep tab on such groups/companies and all together boycott them. Please be vigilant. Do extensive research before buying online. Look at at least 10 different websites before purchasing. Read reviews. Look for extensive and detailed posts. Check for return policy and that too within stipulated time. Ask your friends and relatives about their experiences or look for forums where people like us discuss their bad as well as good experience. Thanks for being patient. more
