The Driving Forces
Behind Our Payment Fears

How Customers Can Protect Themselves

How Vendors Can
Earn Consumer Trust

Shop from secure sites
Look out for secure sites beginning with
https:// * instead of http://

*The “s” means that the site uses
a secure server that protects your information from hackers.

Use trust signals such as logos and trustmarks from external accreditors who will provide shoppers with the assurance that it’s safe to shop on your site. Some common ones include PayPal, ipay88, Visa and Mastercard.

Save your transaction records
Electronic receipts, e-mail confirmations and etc can help keep track of payment history. They also stand as key pieces of evidence should there be any disputes between you and the vendor.

Place these in strategic and visible locations on your website so that they are clearly visible and will eliminate any element of perceived fear.

Protect your computer
Firewalls and updated antivirus
softwares can protect your files
from hackers and can prevent identity thieves from nicking your personal information.

Include an SSL button and privacy policy on your website that clearly states how you use information collected from your customers.
Customers are more likely to trust you if they feel that you are being upfront with them about the safety of their information.

Stay away from free wifi for private activities
Stay away from free wifi for private activities such as online shopping, banking or financial transactions. People can potentially access your data that is being transmitted.

Establish a clear-cut refund policy. Giving shoppers the option of being able to return a purchase that they are dissatisfied with eases the fear of commitment.

Smart and Strong Passwords
Create smart passwords by incorporating numbers, symbols and both upper and lowercase letters.

of a visible trust badge on your site.
