Nothing beats the convenience of shopping online — and it’s increasingly popular even as consumers consider the risks of providing sensitive information that might get compromised.

What are the biggest concerns and how would people like to pay online? The infographic below, courtesy of ZoneAlarm, shows a snapshot of consumers’ attitudes toward online payment security and offers some basic guidelines that they should follow.

If the employers/merchants haven't implemented something like Linovio's PaymentConnect on thier end. Then, PayPal, like you said is one of the best its so common. One brand new app I just found out about it is, FaceCash from Think Computer Corporation for smart phones it uses face recognition, only good at participating stores though. This may breakthrough.
Using an online secure credit card...
Other than that, Paypal is always best. if it is offered, but using a password encryption vault, Keyscrambler, and Rapport will go a long way toward securing your PC online activities. Just using anti-malware/virus is not enough in the new threat environment. I don't recommend ZoneAlarm, as a software firewall, but I do recommend Online Armor. For a hardware firewall, you can't beat CheckPoint's Safe@Office 500W UTM appliances though. ZoneAlarm unfortunately dropped their venerable Z100G UTM appliance, and it was one of the best deals on market, with excellent anti-virus stream scanning and the works! To bad they dropped it, as it was very affordable for SMBs and many of my clients SOHOs. I have no affiliations with these companies, I just hate online crime, and will do anything to disseminate information to thwart it at any opportunity.
