Many merchants sell weight loss products online. Before you buy, it is important that you verify certain information.

Receiving all required information

Merchants are required to provide you with certain information before you make a purchase. They are also required to provide you with the option of accepting, refusing or correcting the offer, and to send you a written contract. To find out more, go to the Getting all required information page.

Verifying the merchant's identity

Make sure you are doing business with a trustworthy merchant whose website provides complete contact information. To find out more, go to the Verifying a merchant's identity page.

Inquiring about exchange and refund policies

Find out about the merchant's exchange and refund policy. The law does not require merchants to refund, exchange or credit an item you no longer want because you have changed your mind. Merchants are required, however, to inform you of their exchange and refund policies before you finalize the transaction.
