The benefits of credit cards are often overshadowed by the discussion around debt
When you use a credit card responsibly, it’s a great way to manage your finances and shop safely – especially online. It also offers better consumer protection than many other payment methods.
“The benefits of credit cards are often overshadowed by the discussion around debt. We want to highlight the advantages of paying with a credit card – especially now that more and more people are shopping online,” says Tuomas Autero, Head of Consumer Cards at Nordea.
Online payments have been growing in popularity in recent years. According to a study by Posti (July 2020), nearly 60% of Finns make purchases online once a month, about one-third every week and most people think their online purchases will increase in the future. Online shopping is secure and smart when you pay attention to the reliability of the website, purchase protection and strong authentication.
