When I shop online, I often find that there are different ways for checking out
creating an account on the online shopping website
choosing guest checkout option.
Use some third party like Amazon or Paypal
Which method would you recommend?
Can you compare the advantages and disadvantages of each method? For example,
which way is more secure and which is less secure? Consider the online shopping site might be one that you have never heard of, but discovered it by Google Shopping's price comparison. Consider the possibility of leaking personal account information when the site is hacked.
Which one is more hassle free and which one is less?
Do they provide the same level of records for future disputes over the product quality, warranty, or its gone missing during shipping, even after the online shopping website goes down possibly forever?
and other aspects that I haven't mentioned.
