Who am I dealing with?
Information about the trader should be clear. You should have either e-mail or phone contact details, and be able to check on the trader's reliability.

You should be provided with information about options and prices for different delivery methods.
How do I know when I've confirmed my order?
There should be a clearly defined ordering process for you to follow.
