The holiday shopping season is upon us – Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday – they’re coming! According to the National Retail Federation, online holiday shopping has increased 7 to 10% each year, so it’s likely you’re buying at least one gift online. And while you may not be mentally ready for it, you can prepare your technology for it.
Whether you’re buying one or all of your gifts online, you want that experience to be as seamless and quick as possible. By shopping online, you’re avoiding the hectic stores and long lines, so you’re off to a good start, but it can be even easier. With Form Fill profiles in LastPass, you can store all of your billing and shipping addresses and credit card numbers in your vault, so your checkout experience is truly just a few clicks. Yes, even if you’re using that credit card you only use once a year and can never remember which wallet it’s in. Let’s show you how it works.
Create New Accounts
One of the most annoying pieces of online shopping is that some places require you to create an account, rather than check out anonymously. For those sites, use Form Fill to make that process a breeze. Not only will you have a new account in a few clicks, but it will also be automatically saved in your vault for easy access in the future.
Insert Shipping Address & Payment
This is where it gets good. Say you picked your brother-in-law in the family holiday swap, and you found a great deal online on a camping tent that he wants. You don’t normally shop on this site, so you don’t have an account and just want to make the purchase easy. With LastPass Form Fill, you can. All you need in your vault is a profile for your Billing Address, Shipping Address, and Credit Card information. That transitions the purchase process from a tedious series of forms to fill out into a few simple clicks that will truly take you less than a minute.
Black Friday is fast approaching, so don’t waste another minute and create your Form Fill profiles in LastPass today. You can get started by clicking the LastPass icon in your browser and selecting Form Fills, or go right to your vault to add new Form Fill profiles. Watch this quick video to see how it’s done.
