Other consumer benefits include a guide to safe shopping online and top tips about pricing, consumer rights and record keeping, as well as correct addressing and packaging information.

The Online Directory is user friendly for shoppers and browsers. Each retailer is listed within one of 14 of the most popular online shopping categories:

The Online Shopping Directory is another simple, everyday service from An Post, it is our way of bringing Irish online retailers and those value minded shoppers together.”
