In the last ten years, the amount of goods and services purchased over the internet has increased by over 1000%. This has largely been due to the increased reach of broadband internet in homes around the world. It has also been influenced by increased professionalism in the online marketplace. Where people would have once been hesitant to purchase online, now many people of all ages have had positive experiences of doing just that.

Retailers such as amazon.com turn over many billions of dollars each year selling everything from books and music downloads to exercise equipment and computer server capacity. Apple’s iTunes has become the world’s leading music retailer in less than a decade. You can order flowers, do your banking and apply for a new credit card without leaving your home. You can even make a will online for a fraction of the price of visiting a solicitor, or you can download the papers you need to file for a divorce.

In fact, legal services such as making a will online are among the fastest growing sectors of the online marketplace as consumers become confident about conducting business online. And this has become easier than ever with the popularity of touchscreen tablets and phones designed largely for web browsing.

There are still some dangers to purchasing goods and services online. Those emails that fill your spam folder are sent for a reason and thousands of innocent people are duped by online scams each month. To be sure that you are safe when shopping online, never give out your private information, such as bank account details, unless you are 100% sure that the service you are dealing with is legitimate. One way of doing this is to contact the phone number that is listed on the website. Be wary of businesses that are hard to contact – if anything should go wrong, how would you be able to get in touch with them?
