Tips for Safe Online Shopping

One-Time Password

Shopping online not only saves you time and effort but also presents you with much wider choice. Here are some tips to minimize risks associated with online shopping:

Ensure the site is secure

Before making any credit card payment online, make sure you are on a secure site. Identify such security clues like a small lock icon or an URL that begins with "https://".

Know the merchant

Always check the merchant's privacy policy and returns policy. Keep your packing until you are sure you are not going to return it.

Secure your PC

Keep your operating system and browsers updated and ensure you have an effective and updated security software installed.

Be better prepared

To ensure a better protection, authenticate your online transaction with One-time Password (OTP), brought to you by DBS Credit Card on any Verified by Visa / MasterCard SecureCode / American Express SafeKey® enabled sites. Simply follow the steps below:

1. Use your DBS Credit Card to purchase online.

2. Fill in your credit card number and other required information.

3. A pop-up window will request you for OTP, which will be simultaneously sent by SMS.

4. Once OTP is correctly input, the online transaction will be authenticated.
