This exploratory study focuses on the analysis, design, development and testing of an online shopping system by using contactless smart card as security mechanism and point values for making purchase. The rationale is to provide alternative ways for secured online shopping without worrying about real cash being transacted in real time, thus encourage more people to shop online. All online purchases could be made via a centralized web-based system, in which the transaction is permitted by using point values stored in the contactless smart card integrated to the system. Short messaging service (SMS) and email were chosen as the medium to notify the confirmed purchase. The testing results have demonstrated that the system performs its intended functionalities and fit for use should it is deployed in the real environment.
