If you are not familiar with an online shop, you should play it safe and take a closer look yourself, because fraudulent online shops sometimes appear reputable at first glance, but deliver only low-quality goods or none at all. Money you pay in advance cannot be reclaimed, your data could be misused and complaints are difficult or impossible.
Please note that online shops outside Europe may incur customs duties, taxes and high shipping costs for returns. This currently applies to low-cost suppliers and dubious drop shippers.
