Online Stores



Online store

is a store, the “showcase” of which is located on the Internet and which makes it possible to order goods through the Internet. On the site of the store is usually presented a detailed catalog of goods with prices, on the basis of which the user forms his order. When ordering goods in the online store, you can receive them by mail or courier, and pay – directly upon receipt or also via the Internet.

Internet stores surround us everywhere. It is worth to go to any website, as soon as pops out a pop-up window, with the advertisement of a particular online store. It should be noted that online stores have existed for a very long time and their main advantage is payment online. However, over the decades of Internet mazain existence, various beliefs want them, which are often a myth.


Online shopping is an investment of money, without any guarantees for receiving goods.

This belief is partly a myth, and in part, the truth. There are cases on the Internet when a buyer pays for a purchase in an online store, after which he does not receive his goods or service, and the fraudster at this time turns off his business and disappears. However, it is worth noting the fact that, for today, such cases can be met very rarely. Usually such “fake” Internet shops are located on a free hosting with weak interfaces. Contacts are naturally fake. Such sites are very prominent on the general background of online stores. Trust is for stores that provide real contact information, or they can provide a document on licensing their activities electronically.

When paying an account in the online store, the virus can infiltrate the user’s computer.

And here it is – the first myth about online stores. The first thing I want to note is the presence of a special zone in which to pay. For example, if you pay for a service or goods in the Internet shop via Webmoney, then the chance that you will get the virus 0%. Not only the Webmoney payment system protects users with special secure zones, in which only certain valid codes work, other payment systems also offer their security practices. A special Merchart mechanism provides secure data transfer through ActiveX elements.

Online stores can serve as a channel for the transfer of buyer’s funds to third parties.

Indeed, there are cases when, when paying for goods in the online store, the buyer could lose all funds in his virtual account. The thing is that there are a lot of Hackers for today. As a rule, the most talented hackers are former programmers who, unlike any other programming language, can write completely amazing scripts that can transfer various information to third parties in the process of paying for any product.
However, today it is worth noting the tendency to get rid of the Internet from this type of danger for customers. Thanks to the latest developments of Russian programmers, the process of transferring funds and all requisites is carried out through a special channel, which is very difficult to access.

Internet shops and their affiliate programs are cheating.

This is another myth that at least does not stand up to any criticism. I must say that this myth was born because one of the users registered in the affiliate program of the fake shop, which explains the banal not the payment of his earned money. Concerning the issue of partner programs, I would like to say that, as a rule, the calculation of funds to the partner’s account is carried out by the script, as well as its payment.
If you participate in the affiliate program of large, well-known online stores, then you should not have a reason to worry, because first of all you pay for attracting new customers to the store in the interests of the store itself.

Internet shops selling pin codes first produce the sale of goods, and then they themselves use it.

If you are faced with this, then I will be in great perplexity, because for today it is nothing more than an ordinary fiction! Myth! Just think about which online store will try to spoil your reputation, because of some mobile phone payment card? It’s not just not beneficial to the online store, it just destroys it once and for all.

Using the sending of goods to the buyer’s E-mail, online stores can throw a spy.

This is indeed so. However, the chance that you will be neglected by such a spy is very small. It is known that more than 75% of viruses are transmitted via e-mail. That’s why be vigilant, downloading documents and files from unknown users.
As for online stores, getting keyboard and other spies from them is a possible situation. However, most likely so can do either fake offices (online stores), or intruders who are trying to shift all the blame on the sellers. That is why today the dispatch of goods (digital form) to E-mail is an extremely rare case, usually a digital product can be obtained directly from the Internet store website.

If there is a break in payment in the online store, money is written off, and the order of the goods is not confirmed.

It’s hard to tell if it’s really a myth. After all, if you look at it from all sides, then you can draw a lot of different conclusions. Usually such errors are caused by a malfunction within the payment system itself, in which case the process that started, can be executed without obtaining the final result (order confirmation in our case). Such cases in Runet are very rare to be met, but it is possible and therefore it is still not a myth! In order to ensure the normal operation of the script, you must first have a stable Internet connection, and also have the necessary protocols.
In any case, you can demand a refund if you do not receive the goods. payment is registered in the database of the payment system. It is they who should request a payment history from your personal account, after which these data should be transferred to the online store.

In an online store, only a user who is registered in one of the payment systems can buy the product.

Here the first thing to note is that this is a real myth. Anyone can pay for a product or service in the online store. However, there is one big BUT. Not all online shops provide payment service via SMS or bank account. In general, online stores work with certain payment systems (the most famous are Webmoney, E-gold, Rupay, Yandex-money). However, here you can make an order and pay for it. This can be done with the help of special payment acceptance machines, which are present in every city, or rather in every large hypermarket.
