3D Secure Scheme
3D Secure can be thought of as an online version of ‘Chip and Pin’. Visa has called their version of the scheme ‘Verified by Visa’ and MasterCard have called their equivalent initiative ‘MasterCard SecureCode’. These are both collectively referred to as 3D Secure. Once registered into the scheme the user will be required to enter a password to complete an online transaction.
PayPal enables our customers to securely, conveniently send payments online, without having to enter sensitive information into anything other than the Paypal interface. Please note that we require all customers to use Paypal accounts with confirmed address only. Any order with an unconfirmed address will be cancelled. If you paid for your order using PayPal, unfortunately you will not be able to return your order to store for an exchange or refund.
Apple Pay is a mobile payment and digital wallet service that allows our customers to make payments without having to create an account or fill out lengthy forms. It is supported on the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and unique transaction code, so your card number is always kept safe and never shared. Paying takes just a touch and is quick, easy and secure.
SSL (Secure socket layer)
We have an SSL certificate that uses industry standard 256-bit encryption technology. SSL protects your information by encrypting data sent between our website and a customers browser (so that it cannot be read as it is sent across the internet). SSL stands for secure sockets layer, and is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer, passwords and logins.
For added security, our website transactions are taken in a secure environment, via our payment service provider, Stripe. Stripe is fully approved to Level 1 in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), which is the highest level of compliance.
