By Joseph May

Shopping online is a fun experience; however it can quickly turn sour if you do not take care of yourself online from identity theft and fraud. Here are some easy tips for you to keep your shopping experience a happy one.

Five Easy Tips for Making Payment Online

1.Choose the best available online account with your credit card company when possible, as a good account will usually have some of the best security measure including encryption software with every payment. A good company will also log you out from the website if you have been inactive for 10 minutes.

Should you have questions regarding these payments and the security side of it, do not hesitate to ask your company as it is always better to be safe than sorry.

2.You might have a long standing instruction or monthly bill that you have signed up from, and thus every month you will no doubt receive invoice about your payment. Instead of signing in to your account through that email link, safeguard yourself by taking the time to sign in from their website instead to prevent any fraud from possible.

You should also pay attention to emails from you bank, as sometimes fraudster use this to victimize you. Your credit card company will not ask you to verify your account through emails, and as such if you do receive such email, make sure you call your company to verify.

3.Signing in with username and password can also be dangerous, especially if you do not change it for a long time, thus make sure that you always clear your history and cache on your computer. You also want to finish what you’ve set out to do online if you are on a dial up connection.

Advancement of technology means it is possible to monitor your online activities, and as such you want to make sure you are safeguarding yourself for your own interest and money when doing any transaction online.

4.Everytime you’ve conduct an online transaction, you will be sent a notification and confirmation either through email or on screen display. You want to make sure you do receive that, and if you do not, do make sure that you call your credit card company to verify the transaction.

5.Always make sure you do not rely on only one password whenever you shop online, try to change it on a monthly basis so that fraudster could not keep up with your activity. Your credit card company will also sometimes provide you with security check and this is an excellent feature to have especially if you shop online actively, thus make sure you ask and see if your company is offering this service online.
