Trying to find genuine products, especially when shopping online, can feel like an impossible task. With so many counterfeit products now on the market, it’s important that you recognise when an item might be fake. The problem is that counterfeit goods are deliberately made to look as genuine as possible, and it can be difficult to tell.
Counterfeit products can include almost anything, and they are often sold under another brand’s name without permission. This is why it’s important to buy from official UK distributors, no matter what item you are looking for. This means you can rest assured knowing you are buying quality products from recognised and trusted companies.
At BuyaBattery, we are official UK distributors of Panasonic, Duracell, GP, Varta and many more leading manufacturers. So, if you’re looking for quality, genuine batteries, you’ve come to the right place.
How to avoid counterfeit products
Counterfeit products are a big problem for many reasons, and it can be frustrating when your items arrive, and they turn out to be fake. This can range from clothing, watches, makeup, computer games, batteries and even phone chargers. They are often created to look as genuine as possible, and it can be very misleading to customers.
Make sure you do your research and know who you’re buying from. Many online shopping sites will steer you to a third-party seller, which can increase the risk of being sold a counterfeit product. This isn’t the case every time, and some will be authorised retailers, so make sure you understand who’s selling!
Check the product’s packaging and make sure you compare it with an image that you know is genuine, like one off the company’s own website. Look for variations on logos, misspellings or anything else that doesn’t look quite right.
If your product is something that has a best before date, the genuine product will have the date printed on the packaging and even the item itself. This is the same for any certifications or warranties that come with the product. Counterfeit items are likely to arrive without these.
