Aside from being the largest and most established site, its website is very secure and reliable. Yes it is, as long as you are on the real Amazon website.

Once there, they may copy the information you enter and use it for illegal activities. So be sure that you only use the official website. Also, you can have your own log in account. This way, you can save yourself the time from repeatedly entering your information whenever shopping. After confirming your purchases, you would also receive a confirmation e-mail that details all your purchases, so you will know immediately if there are any unauthorized activities.

They should definitely work on limiting the number of links per item. Given that it’s an e-commerce website, yes there are advertisements. However, there are too many advertisements in one page that it literally covers the main item that you are viewing in some situations. Worst is that, it advertises different types of products other than what you are looking for. They should categorize the advertisements appearing on their pages so as to help the shopper instead on inconveniencing them.
