I get it, you have the finest taste in everything and want to show that because after all, style says volumes of who you are without even having to speak, but sometimes falling under the charms of a fake handbag can be inevitable.

Get to Know The Online Retailer
The first thing you need to do is learn more about the store you’re buying from. The overall user interface, organization and design of the website speaks a lot about the merchandise that it sells. Check the About Us page and FAQ section on the website to learn more about the reliability of the store. Also, read reviews of previous customers to learn about their customer service and the quality of the products.
Look for Authenticity Proof
Go through the whole website to spot the authenticity guarantee. If the retailer offers authentic products you will definitely come across labels for guaranteed authenticity and quality. If you cannot find any, move on and look for another online store.
Check the Images
One of the best ways to spot signs showing that a bag is fake, it to check its structure in detail. To do this you need to take a close look of the picture. Reliable online stores provide an option for zooming the picture and viewing it from multiple angles.
Compare Prices From More Stores
One of the biggest advantages of online shopping is the possibility to compare prices from more stores in a matter of minutes. If you notice a significant difference in the price of a same handbag, or in other words, if other stores offer the bag for a much cheaper price, that’s a red flag.
