You will be asked for your payment card details in the final stage of our secure checkout, these details - as well as other personal information - are fully encrypted during the authorisation and charging process.
If you wish to pay by PayPal, this option can be found either on the basket or the checkout page.
When you place an order we "pre-authorise" your card for the value of the order so that we can despatch it quickly, this means that your account is checked electronically to make sure the funds are available and if so they are reserved for a few days. If for any reason the order is cancelled or delayed, this "pre-authorisation" will automatically expire a few days later.
For security reasons your card details are not held or stored by us, they are passed directly to our bank who issue us with a "token" to allow us to charge your card. This only takes place after the order has been despatched. We do not store your card details online or offline for future use.
If you do not feel comfortable entering your card details online you can place your order by telephone or post, you may find it easier to add everything to your Basket, and then use the "Print this page" link at the bottom of the Basket page, to save writing all the product details down.
