14 Apr 05 Should You Buy On The Internet?

The internet has become one of the best places in the world to make purchases. While many people don’t buy online for fear of someone stealing their identity, the fact is that you can and should feel safe shopping on the web. The good news is that the process and security of buying online has definitely come from behind and really pushed beyond what was once there. Today, you will save money, have more choices and be safe while buying on the web.

One key thing to do to keep yourself prepared when it comes to buying on the internet is to know who you are buying from. This is very important since in the long run you want to be sure that the quality is right on but also so that you know it is a legitimate company. Also, take a look at the website’s address in your browser window. There, you should see that there is an “s” after “http” which helps to signify that the website’s payment pages are safe to you (this “S” usually is only on the purchasing pages that are secured.

Finally, check your credit card when buying on the internet. Be sure that you were charged correctly and call your credit card company when something isn’t right. The fact is buying online is just as safe as doing so locally.
