Online shopping is something I am really used to. I have stressed this many times over here on the blog that most of my bargain finds I got through online shopping. But let me tell you, I have had my fair share of mishaps when it comes to shopping online. I have missed tons of opportunities to win or purchase a lovely designer dress or that discounted vacation at a luxurious hotel mainly because I was afraid of paying via credit card. These could have been purchases were big factors in my life because I’m all for value for money and bargains.
Yes, I am one of the many who are afraid of using their plastics because of credit card fraud incidents that can happen to anyone. I think many are disheartened with the idea mainly because of the inconvenience and security of paying. Luckily now, there are many modes of payment and more and more banks are giving us options on how we can securely pay for our online purchases. One of the banks that offer this is Maybank Philippines.
If you’re a Maybank client and have their credit card then you’re in luck. Maybank Credit Card offers MSOS (Maybank Secure Online Shopping) wherein Maybank credit card holders are assured of safe checkout and payment.
