Tips for safe online shopping

Shopping online offers you several advantages such as speed, convenience of doing it from your desk rather than braving traffic, and
a wide choice... But these advantages can only benefit you if you take care of the most important aspect while shopping online: safety.

Safety is of prime importance when shopping online -- you can face not only commercial loss if you are not careful, but in extreme cases stand a chance of your identity being appropriated. The following tips can help you determine whether the website you are planning to use is secure and trustworthy or not.

Be careful before you select a store
Do your homework. Go through the ratings and reviews given by previous customers of the website. Make sure you have one other way of contacting them; a phone number or a mailing address. Also, gather information about the website from the 'About us' section.

Review their shipping methods and policies to determine what carriers they use, their shipping rates, and if they provide tracking and insurance. Also find out where they ship from -- goods are sometimes sent from international locations, which require customs and extra time.

Misspellings and grammatical errors are indicators that a website might be fraudulent. You can simply browse through the website to check if it is authenticated and protected. Trust marks such as the VeriSign Secured Seal, or a green address bar in Internet explorer.

Colour-coded address bars are a feature of Extended Validation Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates, which provide added information about a website's authenticity.

The site should not ask for more than your name, shipping address, billing address, credit card type and number, or expiration date.
