 296 Getting the Most from Online Shopping

 296 大家e起来上网购物

Even the most enthusiastic shopper has a bad day sometimes: You can't find what you want, every second person in the crowd seems intent on bumping into you, and your legs are aching from hip to toe. It's at times like these when the much-touted convenience of shopping over the Internet sounds like a better alternative. 

即使是最狂热的购物狂也有出师不利的时候:找不到想要的东西,时时刻刻都有人好像在故意碰撞你而你的双腿从臀部痛到脚趾二这时候,以便利颇受赞誉的网上购物听起来便是个更好的选择了。

Like bargain hunters in the real world, however, on-line shoppers need to be aware of the pitfalls in order to enjoy the benefits of e-commerce. For most, the main concern is the invisibility of whoever is on the other end of the transaction. Those walking into the cyber market armed only with a credit card and an active imagination need to follow a few guidelines. 

但是就像在现实生活中购买廉价商品一样,网上购物者也需留意在享受电子商务带来的便利的同时也要小心购物陷阱。通常最令人担忧的是无法看见在另一端进行交易的对象。在线购物的人仅仅带着信用卡,其余都得凭空想像。因此有些事必须注意。

The golden rule in purchasing anything over the Internet is to find out who you are dealing with. The first step is to make sure the company is legal and has clearly stated sales and security policies, which should be easy to access on its Web site. 

了解交易的对象是网上购物的金科王律。首先要确定对方是合法的公司,有销售方式的详尽描述,并有保险政策,而且进入公司网站应该相当容易。

Buyers should also pay close attention to the terms and conditions of sale, such as whether there are any hidden extras in the form of delivery costs. Of course, it is essential that the firm can guarantee the security of personal information and credit card numbers. Otherwise, you may end up being charged more than you bargained for. 

买方也应该仔细留意交易的条款及条件,譬如是否要承担额外的运送费用。当然,最重要的是该公司必须保证能对消费者的个人资料和信用卡号码保密。否则,到头来你被索取的费用可能会比你讨还的价格多得多。

Not all on-line shopping is done in virtual stores. Internet auctions function in much the same way as regular auctions, though with a longer time limit. Information about items for sale is posted on an auction site and anyone can make a bid within the stipulated time. The successful bidder is informed by e-mail. Then, payment and delivery, which are carried out by prearranged methods, follow. 

并非所有,的网上交易都是通过虚拟商店来完成的,网络上的拍卖运作方式大体与一般的拍卖相差无几,尽管网络上的拍卖有更长的拍卖期限。交易物品的信息会登在举办拍卖的网站,任何人都可以在规定期限内竞标。中标者会以电子邮件的形式得到通知,再依事先约定的方式付款,取货。

Some sites recommend an escrow service that will handle the transaction independently for a fee of around 5 percent of the cost of the item.

某些网站可能会建议使用一种。委托契约”(由第三方独立处理交易)的模式,另加收约为货品价格5%的费用。

Practically anything can be bought on-line and, provided the appropriate caution is exercised, Internet shopping can be a rewarding alternative to trudging through the stores. So sit back, log on, and save the workout for the gym.

几乎所有商品都能在线购得.只要谨慎小心,网上购物会是除了在商家间奔波之外另一项令人满意的选择。所以,休息一下,继续浏览吧!可以省下时间去健身房锻炼。
