Is buying large car parts online safe?

Recommended Posts

Guys have you bought some major car parts on the internet? Like Intakes for example. I would love to purchase one (Plus a few other items like headlights, etc) but I keep hearing about these Paypal scams  - Heck some don't even get their expected receipts in their email  . . . Or should I use another payment company?

I've heard of the following (Feel free to check them out):

  1. BYG Invoicing App.
  2. Stripe
  3. Invoice Simple
  4. Celayix - They offer scheduling which I'm not sure I need at the moment.

I heard people who work there are quite frustrated and quite often because of their workforce management policies or something.

Either way, can you guys share your experiences or thoughts on an alternative for Paypal perhaps? Thx!

Of course! I buy online all the time. What I recommend for you is that you buy these parts online and pay them by COD (Cash On Delivery.) There were lots of online scams before, but you could prevent this if you opt to get the parts paid right after the delivery. Also, you would have to check the site if it is reputable or not. You will be safe if you order on Amazon or any other e-commerce shop that's being advertised on your television.

Additionally, online shopping is as real as your local shopping mart. But if you ask me if it is safe, it's true. Well, in fact, security is getting better everyday, not like 10 years ago. Sooner or later you will realize that it's better than shopping locally, which is sometimes tedious and physically draining. Please note that you will be safe if you buy from familiar brands. Check the website carefully, if it doesn't have an SSL encryption then ditch that website. Research the retailer before buying. I recommend using Paypal or WorldPay. Keep your cards checked as well if you have performed online transaction. Lastly, please do not use public WIFI when you buy online, especially making online payments.
