We also offer PayPal as a method of payment. I'm sure many of you have used PayPal on Ebay, for example, and know that it is quick, secure and efficent. Like on Ebay, PayPal takes you to its own secure site and takes payment for goods there. Then they let us know and we send you the goodies.
We only take online payments. This means that we no access to your credit card details. We do this for security reasons and your peace of mind. It also means we are able to be 100% PCI compliant.
