Aug 17, 2007

For people who are not familiar with shopping on the internet using their credit cards, here is a list of the pros and cons that you must be adept with before considering using your credit card in the internet.

1) As a buyer and owner of the account, there are pros and cons in using your credit card on the internet:

* Online, you don't have to wait on a queue to purchase anything with your credit card. On the other hand, you might get ripped off since you don't know the seller.

* Shopping in the internet with your credit card gives you a wider selection of products with low prices. In contrast, shopping in the internet would not give you a chance to examine the product more thoroughly.

* Using your credit card online gives you the advantage of purchasing products anywhere in the world. However, some sellers may not be trustworthy enough to really deliver what you bought.

* Accessibility of shops 24 hours a day could be provided for you when using the internet. Also, 24 hours a day somebody out there could just be lurking waiting for you to key in your credit card number for him or her to use.

* Although there is a large selection of products to supply the needs of the customer, records have it that there is only an average of 1/10 stocks obtainable on the internet.

2) As a businessman using the internet to sell products and services, there are pros and cons in using your credit card on the internet:

* In using the internet to sell to customers that use credit cards, the company's market sales would increase. But, purchasing hardware and software to support these transactions would cost the company a large amount of money. Also, regular maintenance is required to ensure that all transactions happen smoothly.

* Because customers make use of credit cards through the internet, the company would be able to expand their sales globally. On the other hand, a company must make sure that the stocks are enough to supply the global market when the demand suddenly spikes.

*Through the large number of consumers using their credit cards online, the company's profits won't be that hard to increase. But this entails keeping up with the competition since there a lot of other companies vying to get the most out of the credit card phenomenon.
