We use the latest Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to ensure the safety of all e-commerce transactions on our website. As your personal purchasing information travels across the internet to us, the software encrypts and scrambles your name, address, credit card and other private information, making it impossible for a third party to see or intercept your information. We are a secure e-commerce site.
Credit card transactions are handled by a respected third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions.
Major Credit Card Payments – If you select our regular checkout process, you will enter your major credit card. When your order is finalized, our credit card processing company – Authorize.net – will try to obtain an authorization for the full amount payable. If this is successful, we will then queue the transaction for payment (settlement). We use fraud protection, address verification, and CVV2 code checking for all credit card orders. In addition, for some orders, a phone verification may be initiated.
PayPal Payments – If you select our regular checkout process, you will be allowed to select payment by PayPal. You must already have a PayPal account, and it must be linked to an authorized payment method (normally your bank account, or major credit card). PayPal offers methods of buyer protection as well as merchant protection against fraudulent use, and order disputes.
