Credit Card Safety

Why is Amazon.ca so safe?

  • Safety in Numbers: When you shop at Amazon.ca, you'll be one of millions of customers who have shopped with us safely without credit card fraud.

  • Safe Technology: Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure online commerce transactions. It encrypts all your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.

What happens if an unauthorized person uses your credit card?

  1. Under the consumer protection legislation in certain provinces in Canada, your bank can hold you liable for fraudulent charges only in an amount of up to $50 or as agreed upon by you and your bank in your credit card agreement, depending on your province of residence.

  2. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
