    Just be sure the website you are shopping from is using a SSL Certificate on the checkout page. You can verify this information by looking in the address bar. You will see an "s" in "http" so it should look something like this.. https://www.nameofstore.com It also helps if the online store you are purchasing from has a local or toll free number for sales/support. Helps verify that the company is an active business.

    Nothing to worry Sanket. It is safe if you have to choose proper shopping site. There are many fake sites available too. I prefer only these sites such as Myntra, Flipkart, ebay, homeshop18.

    Online Shopping is safe, but you have to know some points before you shop any thing online.
    1-The Web Store Should be know and looks professional.
    2-If they are asking for Credit card information with your username and email, while making your very first Account try to contact Support team first.
    3-If they ask to inter your credit un-necessaryly then you have to stop.
    4-Make sure to confirm the of for "Norton Secure Payment".

    Yes, online shopping is safe, as long as you use a trusted website. They really have to ensure the safety of their on line shopper,because they are the source of their business.

    If you are using only trusted sources and pay using secure payment methods - that could be the best way to save your money while shopping

    Credit cards are generally the safest option because they allow buyers to seek a credit from the issuer if the product isn’t delivered or isn’t what was ordered. Also, unlike debit cards, credit cards may have a limit on the monetary amount you will be responsible for paying if your information is stolen and used by someone else. Never send cash through the mail or use a money-wiring service because you’ll have no recourse if something goes wrong. Don’t forget to review return policies. You want a no-hassle ability to return items.

    Online shopping has a biggest drawback that we can touch the product. Otherwise on-line shopping is good and less time consuming.

    Online shopping is safe as long as you are dealing with a reputable company or retailer. For me it is safer than the regular shopping because you don't need to bring money outside. You can close transactions anywhere safely.

    It is safe as far as you
    1) Don’t send personal or financial information via email
    2) Don’t share your password or username
    3) Do not use the same password for multiple sites or logins
    4) Make the password as long and complicated as possible
    5) Avoid using public Wi-F
    6) Don't buy from dodgy sites

    It depends on what marketplace website you are going to online shop from. Before you purchase something from a specific online store, make a little bit of research first about. Find out if it's legit or not by reading reviews regarding it.

    I would say that online shopping is safe and convenient. However, you should check first the reputation of a particular online shop before purchasing an item, since that we are now accessible to the internet we were able to do background checking first, the site, the reviews the location, their facebook pages, twitter and any other social media pages. Better be safe than sorry.

    Whether shopping online is safe or not is depends upon the online portal on which you are shopping. What kind of security protocols they are using for online transactions such as login credentials, payment gateway integration, database backup security, website security mechanism, etc.

    Online shopping nowadays is about as safe (or unsafe) as shopping in the real world. If you go to the big, flashy, well-known stores, the likelihood of something bad happening is pretty slim. If you go down the back-alleys of the Internet, and use a site of questionable origin or status, then you take your chances.

    Yes buying online is safe for you because i always buy skin care products from online after reading many reviews. But the only thing you have to follow is buy the products by checking its review.Do not share your personal information,safe sites like amazon,flipkart,snap deal are good you no need to worry it is 100 percent safe.
