To ensure your protection and satisfaction, GoodByeCityLife has put together a page of safe shopping tips for your consideration – please see below.
How to Shop GoodByeCityLife’s Country Living Store
All products listed within the store are managed and maintained through third party associations. For your peace of mind I have investigated the purchasing and shipping process of each vendor and am satisfied with each to the point that I myself am confident to make an online purchase.
Step 1. Find the item you want to purchase online and click “Add to Cart” or “Buy Now”.
Step 2. When you’re viewing any product listing page in our store, simply click the product name link to view the entire item description. From there you could read other purchaser reviews and find further discounts or free shipping offers to your area.
Step 3. In most instances after purchase you will receive an email receipt and a tracking code that is linked to the shipper’s website – from there you can track your purchase’s progress right to your front door, 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Your Privacy and Protection
First of all, please note that no credit card payments, personal information, or transactions are logged, collected, registered or stored by GoodByeCityLife – you are 100% safe to view this website.
Amazon and PayPal – The Internet’s Most Trusted for Online Shopping
Over 50% of our products displaying in the Country Living Store are registered, listed and managed by Amazon (the internet’s largest and perhaps first online store and a trusted source). The remaining products are purchased through PayPal’s secure shopping environment.
Purchases made through PayPal are protected through PayPal’s Buyer Protection Policy and is the preferred payment method for most eBay buyers and sellers. PayPal enables you to send payments quickly and securely online using a credit card or bank account. Once you select PayPal as your payment method you will be immediately redirected to the PayPal site to send your payment. PayPal accounts are free here. There is no charge to use the PayPal service as a buyer.
Once on PayPal you choose how you would like to fund your payment for a product. You can use your checking account, credit card, or any available PayPal balance if you’ve sold items online in the past. When using PayPal for high-priced purchases you may be required to have a credit card billing address registered at PayPal first before a vendor will ship the item to you. On PayPal this is called a “confirmed address”.
Here are some of the most talked about and appreciated advantages to using PayPal.
- Your payment is traceable.
- Your payment is conveniently made and immediately sent to the seller. (You pay directly from the item listing page and payment is deposited directly into the seller’s account.)
- Using PayPal ensures that you do not need to use your credit card for online purchases (you can transfer directly from your bank account).
- Using PayPal prevents sellers or anyone else from knowing your credit card number (PayPal encrypts your number through their secure server) – this limits the potential risk of unauthorized use.
- PayPal offers ‘Buyer Protection’ on all eligible transactions up to $200 at no additional cost. Majority of eBay transactions may be covered up to $2000.
Never send your credit card by email to a seller, to GoodByeCityLife, or for that matter to anyone on eBay – ever! All credit card or personal information of any kind, should only ever be entered into a secure website browser page (which you’ll recognize by the web page url beginning with https, instead of http, and/or a small padlock icon in one corner of your browser window.
