Safetina’s Online
Shopping Lesson

Safetina's Online Shopping Lesson is a consumer education website meant to teach Japanese consumers – a group that heavily participates in online shopping – how to be savvier and more secure when shopping online.


Produced in collaboration with Japanese design students, the website uses manga to translate online shopping security lessons to younger generations.

Online shopping is an important financial issue in Japan. As compared with other consumers across the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and African markets, the 2010 MasterCard Index of Online Shopping ranked consumers in Japan second in likelihood to shop online. In the same study, 75 percent of respondents indicated they are most likely to access the internet for shopping.
