Secure online shopping
What credit/debit cards do you accept?
We accept all major credit/debit cards, or you can pay by PayPal.
What is 3D Secure?
For extra fraud protection, 3D Secure requires customers to complete an additional verification step with the card issuer when paying. Typically, you are directed to an authentication page on your bank’s website, and you enter a password associated with the card or a code sent to your phone. This process is familiar to customers through the card networks’ brand names, such as Verified by Visa and Mastercard Identity Check.
Is it safe to pay online?
