PAYMENT: Customers are required to pay in full for all items sent prior to despatch. Our payment system has been certified by WorldPay as being Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant and is 3D Secured. Most customers will be familiar with this system but if you are not already registered with 'MasterCard SecureCode' and 'Verified by Visa' you will be prompted to do so through the checkout procedure. You only have to register once to use this system so if you already make purchases online from other stores using this system you do not need to register again, just complete the checkout procedure and enter your 3D Secure password when prompted.
It is important to remember that the billing address you give at the checkout must be the address where the credit card is registered. For example: if the card is registered to your home address and not your business address then you must make sure your home address is entered as the Billing Address during checkout. If the address does not match Visa and Mastercard records, they will not authorise your payment. You can still have the order shipped to your business address, just complete the shipping address when prompted during checkout. If you need assistance at any point whilst checking your order out please contact us and we will be happy to help.
