    The most important thing when shopping on the internet, as in real life, is to use common sense. If the website that claims to be your bank, has a lot of typos in their messages, it won´t be your bank. Always check the browser´s address starts wit "https" when entering critical data. If in doubt, do not enter data, as most real companys offer more ways to communicate. Just use your phone.

    You can also turn the question around and ask: Is shopping offline safe?

    At some places, they will try to cheat you and miscount your change. At others, they will be honest.

    It's the same for e-commerces.

    And the good news is that most places are actually honest and trustworthy.

    It impossible to be 100% safe. There always a risk there same to offline .
    But there are several way that allow you to provide safe payment.
    That is why SSL, TrustE, reliable payment gateway exist to help you increase customer trust when purchase.

    Online shopping is safe if done properly. You have to know how to do online shopping. There are people who shop online even using their mobile phones. I would suggest you to check whether the e commerce site is authentic and the payment gateway is trustworthy or reputed. Today, a lot of e commerce and mobile commerce site owners are using cart shopping software to enable their online customers do online shopping easily. If you wish, you can also ask the site owners about the cart software they use.
