When it comes about festival celebration everyone all over the world start buying new stuffs and do lots of preparation to celebrate that in different ways to make it memorable.
Talking about india, India is a land of festivals and fairs. Virtually celebrating each day of the year, there are more festivals celebrated in India as compared to other countries in the world. Each festival pertains to different occasions, some welcome the seasons of the year, the harvest, the rains, or the full moon.
Others celebrate religious occasions, the birthdays of divine beings and saints, or the advent of the New Year. A number of these festivals are common to most parts of India but dates to celebrate those festival might be different.
So to celebrate these festivals needs lots of preparation but buying new stuffs in the market during this pandemic is not safe for everyone. Hence more than half a population in india started using e-commerce i.e.shopping websites to purchase new stuffs to celebrate different occasions in different ways.
Lots of offers, discount and cash back is also given in shopping websites for this few things are really important for us to keep in mind before placing an order online because of sudden increase in number of fraud activities and they are-
Online purchases carry the small risk of thieves stealing your payment information, but you can reduce the risk of unauthorized charges by using the best payment method for each situation. Common payments choices online include credit cards, debit cards, or payment services like PayPal but the safest mode for payment of online purchase is cash on delivery.
I will share one of my experience, where i purchased few stuffs from a verified app whereby i did online payment through a debit card, but due to some reasons they were unable to deliver that product at prescribed time.
I waited too long(More than one n half month) and the irritating fact was the product was not delivered. So i decided to cancel that order and ask for a refund. Then what happened was much more irritating then the previous incident. I haven’t get any refund but that app shows it’s credited to my account. Nah it’s not.
Guys if possible go for cash on delivery option only(weather that app is verified or not) it’s the safest mode i did a mistake and yes learned from it too. It’s just a regretful experience. I hope you won’t regret yourself by making an online payment.
Main aim to to write this article was to share my recent experience. Ya but i still have few more things that everyone should be aware of.Why is http not secure?Know the difference between http and https-HTTPS stands for Hypertext transfer protocol secure.
HTTPS is HTTP with encryption. The only difference between the two protocols is that HTTPS uses TLS (SSL) to encrypt normal HTTP requests and responses. As a result, HTTPS is far more secure than HTTP. A website that uses HTTP has http:// in its URL, while a website that uses HTTPS has https://.
So, whenever you are going through any website firstly make sure that their must be https in website address because it basically provides authentication of the accessed website and protects the privacy & integrity of data in transit during client-server communication.
It assures secure communication. Apart from that do take a look at prices for the same thing at different shopping websites as well as the authentic brand websites, look for common and trusted brands if purchasing something worth more than 2-3 thousands and look for the most recent reviews because by default it shows the most helpful or most popular ones.
