Tips

  • If you are doing a lot of ordering online, PayPal offers a single use debit card number that can be used to order online if you have concerns about using your debit card in many different places. The single use card will only be good for up to a given amount of money and if someone tries to use it again, it won't permit the transaction.
  • If the site you're considering does not have the https rather than http in the URL, it may be better to phone your order in, since that tells you that your card number is not encrypted.
