No problems. But I know the protections on my credit card, regularly check my statements, and look for secure/reliably rated vendors.

I’m very careful about tracking my spending, so I do a lot of shopping online. I use Paypal mostly so vendors don’t have my credit card info. Sometimes dealing with FedEx is a pain though, especially since I do a lot of international purchasing. When stuff is held up at customs it is SO annoying…

I shop online A LOT. I bought all but 1 Christmas presents online this year. Yesterday I bought a bunch of makeup online. Just today I just purchased a hair piece for the wedding online. I think I’m addicted to online shopping!

I shop online quite a bit. I like it because I often find what I want for cheaper than in the store…I just have to wait a little longer to get it. I did once buy from a non-secure site and had to change all of my credit card info, etc., so now I am so much more careful and usually stick to Amazon or sites with repuatations such as that, so I know that I can be as secure as possible.

Just be sure to look for a secure site- the url should start with https- s is for secure

There will also be an icon of a padlock somewhere on the browser window.

I agree with julies1949!

Also Paypal is great! And I suggest using a creit card instead of a debit card, they offer better fraud protection.

I don’t feel any less safe on-line shopping than I do with handing my cc over to clerks at stores.

Online shopping is definitely my weakness. I do it quite often but I use paypal whenever I can. For bigger companies such as Macys, Victorias Secret, etc I don’t mind giving them my credit card info but for smaller businesses or places like etsy I always use paypal. You can never be too careful.
