Over time I had gotten more comfortable with shopping online. I remember when online shopping first started, I was as skeptical as everyone else, not really trusting to buy products that I hadn't felt, seen or smelled myself. Tales of credit card fraud and unsavory merchants also didn't help make me too comfortable about giving out my credit card number and personal information. But, as I got more comfortable with the internet and heard better reviews about shopping safety online, I ventured more and more into online shopping. Now, I probably would miss it if it wasn't available to me anymore.
If you still have reservations about online shopping, you should check out buySAFE. BuySAFE is a shopping advisor of sorts, a tool that claims to make your online shopping safer and more secure. How do they do that?

With buySAFE, merchants in their network are all bonded so your purchases are guaranteed.
