Shop at Recognized website:
Websites gains familiarity among people through their reputation and security. Use recognized website instead of preferring the sites that are encouraged by search engines.

Only HTTPS not HTTP:
Look for secure sockets layer encryption in any site that you have selected to shop online. Are you wandering what is SSL encryption? There is a very simple way to detect it. The encrypted site URL will start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. Do not provide any of your billing details in the site which has HTTP placed before its URL in the address bar.
Compare the Price:
When you select a product to buy online, check the price of it in different online shopping store. Compare the price and at the same time, check the shopping store’s reputation before billing the product. Be aware of duplicate products and fake brand names.
Short your information’s:
Never give detailed information about yourself in any website. At the time of billing, provide your card details but not your date of birth, social security number and contact number. Online shopping store has nothing to do with your personal information. The more information you provide about yourself is the more possibility to trace your identity.
Print your Orders:
Do not forget to save a copy of your purchase order and transaction processed screen. Also make a note of your purchase order number or transaction number for further reference and clarification.
