# Always check Payment gateway and site’s Page URL
You may notice during the making an online transaction, payment gateway asks you to choose the appropriate bank and its options. There are some payment gateways that are very popular and well-known, so you can pay on those. But I suggest, you must check the URL for being sure. Because it has been seen sometimes skilled hackers use phishing to build fake page that looks exact the same as original sites. While the payment is always connected with bank, so at this time, the bank login URL must be checked once.

You should also check that the app is being used by you whether app is using https URL or not. If a payment gateway does run on HTTPS protocol then go ahead, otherwise avoid using this.
