There are many reasons to shop online. From the comfort of your own home, you can find everything you need! It's a golden age for not going to the store, yet buying more than ever!
You just need to be wise and follow a few simple tricks to make your purchase shopping safer and easier.
Don’t shop publically
First of all, if you plan to do any shopping online, do it using your home computer! If you’re using a public computer - at the library, at a cyber café or at work - to do your shopping, you have no control over who might be using that computer as well which is very risky. When you enter your personal information into a public computer, you increase the chance for your information to be stolen.
Look for the Lock
Never buy anything online using your credit card from a site that doesn't have SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption installed! How do you know if the site has SSL? The beginning of the retailer's web site URL will change from "http" to "https" when a purchase is made, using a secure connection.
Use a Credit Card
Always use a credit card, not a debit card. This is the best form of payment for safe online shopping, as credit cards offer consumers an extra level of protection. Almost all credit card companies will refund all money if you get ripped off.
Go to Bizrate - that is a company that keeps ratings (generated by consumers like us) of online businesses.
Search for discount codes online
Millions of products and gifts are literally at your fingertips. It only takes a few moments to look for online coupons and they really help you save - just enter a code. It really is that easy.
On the retailer's website, you will find the current discounts, sales and coupons. You can also search for promo code and coupons. Some of the most popular coupon sites are RetailMeNot, CouponCabin, and CouponMom.
