V.me by Visa online payment service is SO easy to use!

I’m a shopper. As I get older, I’m becoming more and more an online shopper- it’s quick, it’s easy, and I can get things to my home or someone else’s in very little time. With online shopping, I can price compare and earn cash back which means I can typically save myself some money. That’s a big incentive to continue shopping online. But with online shopping comes online payments and that opens all kinds of concerns. V.me by Visa is a new online payment service that can help me with many of my online shopping concerns! I am forever having to go find my wallet to get my payment information when shopping online- I like being able to have access to a service that remembers for me- in a secure way.

Being a new service, one of the first things I wanted to check was WHERE I could use the service. I wanted to be sure I could use this at places that sell things I might use!

sites that accept v.me by visa

There are several sites I frequent that are on the list! I was so happy to see this. We’ve been really enjoying movie dates this year and seeing that I can easily and quickly order movie tickets online with this service made me happy. This way I can order from my phone if it’s a last minute decision and we’re out and we don’t have to wait in line. There are also shoes to be had from Shoebuy.com…we all wear shoes, right? There are a surprising amount of merchants who already have agreed to accept V.me by Visa for payment.

shopping at buy.com with v.me

I decided to head over to Buy.com to see what kind of deals I could find (it’s Black Friday). We were discussing the fact that I have never seen the Christmas special Emmitt Otter’s Jugband Christmas, and I thought it might be a good day to grab a copy. To my disappointment, this was not on the list of deals, but I went ahead and ordered it anyway. I love Christmas specials (OK OK I love all holiday specials!) and want this to be part of our collection!

Shopping was business as usual, and I was trying to be good and only get what I “came” onto the site for.

checking out with v.me by visa

There wasn’t anything surprising about checkout with V.me- a few windows and voila. Payment processed, without me having to go grab my credit card, and I’m still earning cashback on my purchase with the card I have on file.

I wasn’t at all concerned that my identity would be at risk.

Easy, peasy…lemon squeezy!

  • I don’t drive, so I have to do most of my shopping online. Even PayPal and the services aren’t always safe, but they catch the fraud much more quickly. It’s good to know there’s another service out there giving PayPal competion. Maybe now they will focus a little better on customer service.

  • This sounds so great!! I just wish some of the places I do business with were on the list. I do a bit of online shopping and I just found out today that someone got ahold of my debit card number and did a fair amount of shopping online. Thank goodness Bank of America sends you out an e-mail message when your checking account balance dips below a certain amount and I was able to go online and see all these charges that weren’t mine. I called the fraud department and we are working on getting them reversed. So a word of wisdom to everyone that does online shopping, especially with a debit card, please be careful!!

  • I started doing most of my shopping online this year. In the past, I didn’t like the shipping fees but since I’ve discovered promo codes, coupons, etc. I’m a huge fan of online shopping. I’m surprised I have not heard of this service yet. Very good to know though. When it comes to credit info, I like to know what I’m getting into before I start entering important info!

  • I do most of my shopping online, it really saves on gas and crowds but you can also take advantage of the rebate sites available. This service sounds like it would really help me. I forget everything, I’m not quite that old yet, but with MS I have to read some info, stop and read it again… until I finish entering my credit card number. Paypal has been great, but not everyone takes paypal payments. If this became where it was available with a lot of stores using it for checking out. It would really be great. Thanks for the review, I haven’t heard about this service untill read it here on your blog.

  • A few years ago my paypal account was hacked and it took almost 2 months to get it all in order and all the money returned. This seems much more secure as it is with Visa and not tied to a bank account. Thanks for the find!

    Reply
  • I am pretty much stranded a lot due to health and use online shopping a lot, BUT we have been compromised at least 3 times in as many years on our main credit card AND our regular bank cards. And we found out IF you get hacked and you fail to notice this on your REGULAR checking/savings BANK accounts, there is nothing you can do…you are OUT! at least ours is. Major Credit cards are different but you HAVE to be looking for this and many of us just assume it’s all legit. So THIS seems like a great idea for us…easy access, no worries! We have never pre-purchased movie tics so we will look into this. I assume many more stores/businesses will follow suit. Never heard of this so THANKS!
