The internet is the ideal solution for shopping emergencies. And with the holiday shopping season approaching, it's a good time to take a refresher course on the safety of online shopping.
Shopping online is no more dangerous than shopping at the local mall if you know what you're doing – and finding an online website is a lot easier than parking space. You can do online shopping in Egypt by visiting amazon.

You just need to follow the strategy below: –
1. Learn how to identify transactions with secure websites.
Leading online purchasers and sellers use online payment processing systems that automatically encrypt sensitive information such as credit card numbers making it nearly impossible to steal. Fortunately, when shopping online, it's easy to see if your transaction is being processed safely or not.
2. Shop at major retailers.
Knowing that a transaction is secure is one thing; Knowing that a website owner can be trusted is something quite different. Choosing when to trust a website depends partly on who posts it, what information it needs, and what you want the website to do.
3. Use a credit card for online purchases.
Credit cards are much safer than debit cards when shopping online because you are covered by the Fair Credit Charging Act provisions (if you are a US consumer) and if you suspect you can dispute charges with your credit card company for fraudulent transactions. For added security, use a separate credit card for online purchases and monitor them carefully.
