Don't Shop With Credit Cards anymore

India
January 23, 2018 4:40am CST
I think we all like to shop and pay online using our debit and credit cards and other such mediums. Few days back i read the news about a Mobile phone companies website, its One Plus Mobile, the users that purchased that mobile online from the companies website and paid through credit card are scammed by hackers who have stolen the details of there credit card. Its very bad thing and now those innocent buyers are facing all the issues. We need to be aware when we shop online and pay with credit cards. What are you thoughts about it? Do you pay with credit card?

Me too, I think it's one of the best ways cause you don't expose your credit card, details are all encrypted in paypal which is very secure.

I use PayPal for online payments. There exist also prepaid credit cards which you recharge with new fund. So, if someone steals you that card, that person will get only that bit of money you charged previously on it.

@thesupersingh I actually don't have a credit card. It is rare but if I do need a credit card then my dad lets me use his. I guess I might need one sometime. If not then that would be great lol
