Here are some best practices to help ensure safe purchases on Afrosmartshop.

Overall, use your best judgment. If something seems shady or too good to be true, it’s best not to risk it.

Credit card safety

  • Never give your full credit card number, tax identification number, or password in an email, Afrosmartshop Message, or over the phone.
  • Check your credit card statement regularly to track your spending and card activity.
  • Keep track of your credit card: who is authorized to use it, and who has access to it.
