The easiest payment method to use when shopping on line is a credit card, usually the site gives the buyer an option on a variety of choices of credit cards that they accept for payment. So how do I protect myself from fraud you might ask? Take note of the following:
1. Make sure you are shopping on a secure site.
To make sure the site is secure look for a tiny padlock icon, this is usually found in the top right corner of your browser’ You can also tell if the site is secure by looking for an “s” in the URL address. While non secure sites and pages begin with http://, secure sites begin with https://.
2. Read Reviews and Be Skeptical
Before buying on line the buyer should also do a little investigating before hand, like checking reviews about the particlar product he wishes to purchace. Make sure that the source of information is from an impartial organization.
