Tips for online shopping

Posted by

Online shopping can offer more selection then heading to your local mall. Online shoppers literally have a plethora of e-tailer sites to choose from. However, ecommerce shopping is not without risks.

Always try to use a search engine to locate legitimate ecommerce sites.
  • Check that the site uses encryption – Look for a lock symbol on the page and check that the web address starts with "https, rather than “http.

Have fun shopping in your pj’s…
