  • The most important thing is that, whenever we are using the debit card or credit card for online shopping, we must use the secured internet connection.

    Second important thing is that, never share the card number as well as online security password to any person in any case.

    Third important thing is that, always do the online shopping transaction from Genuine websites as there are so many spam and fake websites active over internet and you may lost your money as well as online payment security.

  • Nowadays buying things from online shopping is become normal and we can use our Debit or Credit card for online shopping, only one thing is to be careful on input of your Card number, Password, VNC number and so on with genuine sites.

    Make sure you purchase from reputed online shopping website like Snapdeal, Flipkart, eBay, Rediffshopping and so on. Do not fall prey in any unknown or unfamiliar site by providing your Debit / Credit card detail and personal info.

    I used to use Debit / Credit card through particular bank's association sites which is very helpful to buy or pay the bill etc. since Bank authorized those sites and direct the link to do so with further instruction, thus we are 100% secure with the online supervision of Bank.
