Shopping online is the most common way purchases are made with the PCard. Unfortunately, online shopping is not always safe. It is important to use good judgment when shopping online. Don’t use your PCard if you wouldn’t use your own personal credit card.
Shop only with vendors who have secure internet sites. How will you know if a vendor’s site is secure? Look for any of the following:
The site will show a closed lock
The site address/URL will start with https://
When you go to transmit information there will be an indicator confirming the transaction is secure (a box which pops up).
