Applying For Credit Online:

When shopping online, several online stores would often ask you to sign-up for an account and would even ask you to save your credit card information so the next time you shop on their site, you no longer need to type in your 16 digit card number over again. While it’s true that doing this will be convenient on your part and will save you lots of time, there are actually certain risks involved on this.

If you do not want this to happen, read on so you will know some tips on how to take out your credit card information online.

The process of removing your credit card information will pretty much depend on the website that you have signed up for. There are some sites that will give you an option on your account to take out your credit card details, but some sites do not have this option available. For sites that will allow you to remove your credit card details, all you need to do is to log-in to your account and click on the option to remove your credit card. However, for websites that do not have this option, the best thing that you can do is to call their customer care service line and ask help on how you can delete your credit card details on your account.

There are instances where you need to send an email on the company either because they do not have a customer care hotline or perhaps you cannot contact their customer care through the phone. When you send an email, never ever provide your full credit card information on the email. As you know, scammers have a way to hack your email and access these details. You can just provide the card details, the last four digits of your card number as well as the expiration date of your card. But again, do not ever provide the complete information.

Sometimes, people make the mistake of saving their credit card details online when they are not suppose to. This is a common mistake because there are some online stores that will save your credit card automatically, not unless you uncheck the option that says ‘save credit card details’. Therefore, the next time you pay for something online, read everything and find out if the system is trying to save your credit card.

Despite of all the fraudulent transactions that are going on in the Internet these days, shopping online is still becoming popular. This is because of the convenience that it gives to the shoppers. There is really nothing wrong with using your credit card to shop online for as long as you are careful in providing your credit card details. Avoid shopping from sites that are not secure. Before you key in your card details, check to see if the URL has ‘https’ instead of just ‘http’. Furthermore, always look for that ‘lock’ symbol at the bottom of your screen since that is an indication that the website you are shopping from is safe and secure.
