    well, it is important to build the trust of the consumer. after all, selling and buying on the internet is a tricky business and one should make sure that he is as truthful as possible. About the origin of the product, the companies should be as specific as possible concerning the qualities and specifics. after all, u dnt wanna be humiliated internationally.

    hello ev1! My name is Rob i am a restaurant owner and manager is SA! I actually agree with jenna. although i dnt actually deal with such issues but i have conducted some research concerning the topic. Other than being hones about the origin, comapnies should prove the authenticity of themselves, beacuse fater all, the consumer will buy from companies that are "famous" or well known. In addition, the issue of being honest with prices and delivery charges and facilities is really important as well. Your main concern is to make the consumer trust u enough to actually buy from you!

    I actually agree. when i started working i faced that problem. what is worst is that it's not only the problem of theft but of identity theft as well. many people will pose as companies elling products to take money from people

    That is a huge problem indeed. some of the most important embezzlement cases in history happened through internet theft. The problem is that we don't have enough rules and regulations to govern this whole technique. Even the rules that are already there are not being respected by companies. I consider that there should be some kind of censorship on these transactions and that websites be given a specific url that distinguish them from fake profiles. that's just my input. In addition, companies should make sure of the honesty of their employees before hiring! as simple as that

    The answer is simple : thw internet was created to conduct research. However one should pay attention to plagiarism and taking consent from the author himself. nice to chat with u got to run!

    I agree. It's not only the issue of plagiarism it is more the issue of consent and copyright because after all the author worked hard to provide us with info: here the role of the researcher is to make use of that information to come up with somethinh new. good luck
