During recent years, many retailers of contact lenses have offered an order/sales service via the internet. Today it is the most convenient and indeed cheapest possible means, of purchasing contact lenses.
Nevertheless many are reluctant to utilize Internet sales sites because of concerns regarding payment security systems whereby in the majority of cases, customers pay for goods and services via cash card or credit card. It is understandable that many customers have concerns regarding the release of information for example, regarding account card numbers or validation periods.
However, how secure are these systems really? We believe that it is just as secure to carry out transactions via the internet as it is in any every day physical retail outlet. That is, if you pay via a payment or credit card. Retail industry records show that it is no more hazardous to release credit card details via the internet than it is to purchase goods or services at a more traditional outlet.
What is important to remember when purchasing via the internet is that the site is known and reputable, a place where purchases can be made in security; the majority of these large sites are both secure and reputable. Be always careful when releasing information concerning banking details. Check also that the retailer's site features a secure and recognized payment security system so that personal information does not fall into the hands of a third party. Many retailers offer twin services with the possibility of paying via a billing system or via credit/cash card.
