Always Check Auto-Fill Options
It is very easy to trust Google Chrome, Windows, or even Apple to auto fill your information on forms for you, heck you just start typing your name and it’s like “please, click me and I will do it for you.” Lately I have found more than a few times for myself and customers; the auto fill form likes to put in wrong information! Sure this function can save you time, but it’s a smart idea to read over the form. If you do not read the form, your order may sit in limbo, or you may not get an email or phone call. It’s always wise to double check any work!
