PACKING, SHIPPING & RECEIVING - INTRODUCTION

We have, as consumers, all but come full circle.  Days of looking through the Sears, or Eatons, or Robucks catalogues might be no more, but searching through, one picture and description, after another, has become common place once again, in the consumer's market place.  The big difference - today, thanks to the computer/internet tool, it simply easier.

As easy as visiting Ebay, selecting the bicycle, or whatever, one wants and then clicking a button or two.  Bike purchased.  Money spent.  And the wait begins.

In today's on-line world of remote shopping, there is no real person middle man to deal with, when, what you ordered from the catalogue, is not what it was expected to be.  The on-line buyer cannot hop into the old Chevy, zip back to the store, and request a refund.

Seeking a refund, associated with an on-line purchase, is a time consuming, and, sometimes, unrewarding hassle.  There are shipping issues, both ways, to consider.  There is a loss of time factor, to consider.  And, there is the scammer to consider, and consider long before one sends cash to a complete stranger based on a bit of text and a few pictures.  This is a tricky business, fraught with danger.

As an on-line seller/buyer, one must learn how to pack and unpack.  Yes, knowing how to approach the receiving end, of an on-line transaction, is just as important as knowing, how to ship that same package.  This was not a problem in the old days, of department store shopping and purchasing.

As an on-line seller/buyer, you need know, what to look for, when you pack and/or receive an item.  Proper packing is the best way to help ensure, that what is being transported does not experience damage, and/or loss.  And, if you know what to look for, when receiving a package, you will be much better prepared, to initiate a shipping damage/loss claim, should the need to do so arise.

In today's world, the average consumer can become an importer/exporter, with the click of a button, on one's computer.  In today's world, the consumer can, and does, sell and buy on-line.  And, many of those things, bought and sold, must cross international boundaries.  Being aware that import/export issues can crop up, when shopping/selling on-line, is one of the many things needed to be considered
