1. Ensure that when you make a purchase online, you are aware of if the site is secure or not. You may not want your information being compromised in nowadays. Identity theft is fairly common, and you must protect your information at all cost so that you will wish to keep making purchases online.
2. If a website is not secure, do not make a purchase. Simply search for at the website address when you are shopping. If you notice an "https" instead of an "http," you can feel confident enough to insert your bank card information. However, if there is no "s" in the address, proceed to a different site to be around the safe side.
4. Do not forget to comparison shop when you are looking for things online. People usually do that when shopping in physical stores, but they don't think about it on the net. If you opt for the first sale you see, there exists a chance you may miss out on an improved deal elsewhere.
5. When you are creating any purchases on the web and you are required to make a user account, never use the same passwords that you use on other websites. Do not use your e-mail or banking password to make an account to buy shoes from a web retailer. If somebody was able to see this password, they can have access to more than just your profile on the retailer's store.
