Online shopping is a time saver and can really make your shopping experience pretty hassle-free. Often times these packages show up when we are at work or simply not home. Leaving them on the porch has become pretty standard practice. Is that safe though? Have you ever heard the term *Porch Pirates*? Opportunists that come behind the delivery driver and help themselves to your deliveries. Can you keep your packages safe from so-called porch pirates? Here are a few tips that can help.

1. Experts say you should schedule package deliveries for when you know you’ll be home.

2. If you can’t be home, have the package delivered to an alternate location, such as a neighbor’s home. UPS operates a system of more than 8,000 locations nationwide that allow package pick-up and drop-off. According to the        company, the access points offer a delivery solution to help customers receive their online order after the first home delivery attempt. Another alternative is to have packages shipped to your place of employment if possible.

3. Require a signature for delivery.

4. Sign up for a service such as FedEx Delivery Manager or UPS My Choice, which allow you to specify where to leave a package and when.

Armed with these tips, you can keep that online shopping experience as hassle-free as possible.
