Most of the shopping i do online is done at Amazon,they carry everything even used stuff at much cheaper prices.They have never charged my credit card unless i used it and i have found it to be very secure.I shop often almost everything i buy i buy from there.

I have bought things online from alot of differenet sites and I have never had any problems. I have bought alot from ebay but I alway use paypal when shopping through them.

I think it is scary no matter where you shop with a debit or credit card. Scammers are always looking to steal your identity and your money. I use big name sites like, ebay, amazon, walmart, target, and others that maybe arent huge sites but will accept paypal. If none of those things apply I will only use a credit card with a very low limit and not a debit card.

I shop online; but only from sites that I know are okay. For example: a stores main website is usually safe. I will not, however, shop online on ebay and stuff because your paying someone you dont even know :s That worrys me a little bit; but I know people that DO use ebay and they think it's fine so I guess it's just personal preference really :)

When you are shopping make sure there is a little lock emblem at the bottom right hand corner of the site that you are inputting your information on and also the page will start with https instead of just http. The information is transformed when it leaves the page and then encrypted when it arrives on the server of the website from which you are making a purchase. It is actually very safe.

I have a special credit card for my on line shopping, with only a small amount on it, I have never had any problems in the past but we do have to be careful these days and yes it can be very addictive, I have bought a couple of things that after I had bought them I have seen cheaper in the stores so I look around more now before just buying when I see things on line.

I won't give my cc info unless it has an SSL, when going to the checkout page I look at the adress bar and if it doesn't say HTTPS: I wont order. S means secure. Also I check in my browser options "tell me if certificates have been revocked", This way I know if it is a secure order site. Prefably I use paypal to do all my buying.

That's one of the reasons I don't like to shop online, because you never know who could get a hold of your credit info and rack up some pretty high charges. The only time I ever shop online is for something I want and was unable to find it elsewhere.

I shop online. I just recently starting shopping online more now that I found an online opportunity that pays me for buying the things I'm already going to buy. I really don't worry when buying things online. I always check for the lock embelm at the bottom of the browser before inputting any information. I recommend always doing that. Also, if you're really worried, you might look into getting a pre-paid debit card for your online shopping. I'd say I shop online once to several times a month, depending on what I'm looking for.
