5 Safety Tips for Online Shopping

Most of us nowadays prefer to do our shopping online. It keeps us safe from getting the virus and it is more convenient. There are a lot of good deals online from our favorite shops but is it safe to shop online?

If you love online shopping then we have tips for you to enjoy safe online shopping!

TIP #1: Use a secured WI-FI connection

Once you are doing your shopping online make sure that you have a secured connection. Do not use public wi-fi because it is often unsecured, it will be easy for fraudsters to get your personal information. If you are in a public place use your mobile data.

TIP#2: Do not use your debit card

It is better if you use your Credit Card because your debit card is linked to your bank account. The seller will not get any direct access to the money in your bank. Once there is fraudulent activity on your credit card, you can call your credit card company to investigate it then will give you a new card. You can also use Paypal to pay for your items.

TIP#3: Only give the needed information

Do not give any personal information that is not needed. You only have to enter your full name, contact number, and address, nothing else. These are the basic information that they need to deliver your order right to your doorstep. If they are asking you for something else don’t purchase in that shop.

TIP#4: Purchase from trustworthy stores

Make research and read some reviews about the shop before making a purchase. See if the quality of their products is good and if the customers were receiving their orders. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

TIP#5: Track your orders

Once you make your purchase and are done paying make sure that the seller will provide you the information on how you can track your package. If they refuse to do so call your credit card company to help you and remove the charge on your bill.

So, make sure when you shop online, you do it safely to have hassle-free online shopping! One more thing, trust your instincts!
