shoppers go online…

Current instability is driving buyers to the internet in search of bargains and discounted goods and value for money.


This year there has been continual growth in internet sales – for many shoppers whose budgets are stretched by the economic downturn this growing trend is now generating large communities of like-minded shoppers in avid search of cheaper goods. More and more British shoppers are seeking advice and tips on cheap prices from their online peers.


With budgets getting even tighter, consumers are turning to online forums like DDUK FORUM  and communities, blogs and reviews for other people’s opinions before they make a purchase.


Tips for safe shopping online:

  1. A credit card offers greater protection than a debit card.

  2. Make sure that your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software and a personal firewall to minimize your chances of falling victim to identity theft and online fraud.

  3. Sign up for Verified by Visa and Mastercard SecureCode to help keep your credit card details safe during transactions.
