With the recent news that shopping online has risen over the previous month and year, luxury hamper company Highland Fayre are encouraging all shoppers to shop online safely, this Christmas.
With an increased number of shoppers now going online to find some bargains and great deals this year it's vital that remaining aware and taking a few simple steps can ensure that there are no problems this Christmas.
There are many simple and effective ways to help remain secure while shopping online that can be overlooked as the Christmas period approaches. Try the following:
1. Make sure before paying or entering any kind of card details there is an 'https://' prefix present in the address bar; this will clarify that the page is currently encrypted and it's safe to enter credit card information.
2. Try to find security badges such as VeriSign, Trust-E, and PayPal, before paying. This can give you confidence in using any particular website that there are safety measures already in place. Plus services like PayPal can prevent the requirement of card details having to be entered.
A spokesperson from luxury hamper company, Highland Fayre, has said:
“By following these simple and straightforward safety checks you can be sure that there are no late surprises this year.”
“Shopping around and being wary of potential scams can help keep everyone on their toes this Christmas and make sure that those great deals are the real thing. Using reputable websites and sellers can help give you peace of mind this Christmas.”
