a while back being the key part of the sentence.

theyre fine now.

They have always been fine. I've had an account with them for about 3-4 years and nothing has happened to me...

You have to register a card as I think they require it for preorders.

If i remember correctly (probably don't) Shopto was one of dozens of companies (some fairly well known) that used a card transaction service that had issues with sticky fingered staff stealing details. It's taken a while for the unfair stink to leave Shopto as some banks still block transactions from them.

wouldnt say it was unfair tbh

both me & my OH had £20 O2 transactions mysteriously appear on our credit cards. Both of us had recently bought from shopto. In fact, my OH card was only ever used once online (shopto).

Same here my Hubby used his card at Shop to (never got used anywhere else), 2 x£20 vodaphone vouchers were bought using his details and the bank prevented a £300 transaction for netbook as it was out of character for the card usage!

use paypal

I also was part of the fraud investigation back in early 2009 allegedly due to misuse of my card details submitted to ShopTo.net. Fortunately, my bank stopped the purchase of £400 worth of foreign currency.

I have not used ShopTo.net since.

BFN,

fp.

They're fine.
But i have very recently used paypal to place a pre-order with them.

I had some kind of top up cards for tesco mobile purchased with my card after using shopto.

About a year ago i had someone use my card details to buy over £700 worth of stuff, and was pretty certain it was from one of their staff members, i hadnt bought anything for a good 2 months before until i used that website.

Ive heard its ok to use now but if im going to buy something from them its via PayPal.
