1. Sign-up for any identity fraud protection your credit card company offers, particularly if you shop online often. No matter how safe you are or how diligently you believe it is possible to protect your information, it's never one hundred percent guaranteed. Take full advantage of automatic ID protection and know you will have back-up, should the worst occur.
2. For those who have questions while shopping, choose a live chat function around the online store. Many big brands (and even some boutique stores) now have this functionality. It is possible to chat immediately with a customer service representative to fix any issues or answer any questions before buying. That can give you a lot of reassurance.
4. Check out coupon sites. Whatever you desire to buy could have coupons or discount codes. Before you purchase something, ensure that you have the ability to have a few seconds and do a quick search. You might even want to bookmark some coupon sites to have ready when you buy.
5. Learn the online store's return policy. Should you be considering making a purchase on an item that you might want to return, be sure you find out if returning the item is definitely an option. Sometimes when you shop online, items cannot be returned and you do not want to be tied to an unwanted item.
