How to purchase tanning beds online

If you do not have much time to go around the city to check out the merchandise in tanning bed showrooms, then you have another option – purchase tanning beds online. Shopping from online tanning bed retailers can save you a lot of time and money, and also allows you to ‘visit' more stores at a shorter amount of time.

But be careful -- purchase tanning beds online is not all that easy. There are some very important things to keep in mind. Here are some of them.

Put security above everything.

Online security has long been a concern when it comes to web retailing. One wrong move and your personal and financial information (such as your credit card numbers, e-PINs, billing address, etc.) can get into the hands of an unscrupulous individual. It's one thins to lose a few dollars, but losing several thousands – or worse, your identity – can be devastating. Be extra careful if you intend to purchase tanning beds online, because you are buying something worth a lot of money. Several things can happen – your payment can be intercepted and led to another account, your credit card information can get exposed and used to make illegal purchases, and many others.

How do you protect yourself? Start by making sure you are shopping in a secure site. Purchase tanning beds only from web retailers that use extreme encryption technology to transmit the financial and personal information you input from your computer to their computer. Encryption works by scrambling the data you send to inhibit hackers from getting hold of it en route. How do you know if the site you want to purchase tanning beds from is secure? Check for two things: a padlock symbol on the lower right hand corner of the page, and an ‘s' after the ‘http' in the site's URL.

Purchase tanning beds only from merchants you trust.

The price of their tanning beds may be a bit higher than those in other sites, but sites with good standing are also much more reliable. Go with a reputable web retailer if you have to purchase tanning beds online. Their purchase procedure – from selection to payment to delivery – is almost always more secure than others. Beware especially of ‘overnight' websites that showcase products they do not even carry, get your money, and then disappear. Make sure to purchase tanning beds only from authorized resellers. If you are unsure about the authenticity of a website, check with the manufacturer. You will usually find a list of their authorized retailers in their website.


Do not forget to print a copy of your transaction.

After you successfully purchase tanning beds online, be sure to print out the confirmation page. That page summarizes all your orders, the information you gave, all the pertinent information about the tanning beds (model, serial number, etc.) and the confirmation number. It should also contain the web retailer's name, business address, and number, among other things. Also print a copy of the warranty terms and conditions and he policy on returns. Keep all of these documents together it in a safe place. Have an electronic back up copy, too.
