Payment Security

We use SagePay server as our payment solution.

The transaction takes place in an iframe on our site but is handled directly by Sagepay, we DO NOT store any of your payment details in our databases.

Your transaction is handled by a secure HTTPS POST from our web server to the Sage Pay’s servers, followed by a callback. It is arguably the most secure of Sage Pay’s integration, combining the security of HTTPS POST with other anti-fraud features, ensuring that no tampering has taken place during the transaction…

Now that’s pretty secure but, if you’re still not convinced, think about this:

Every time you buy petrol or a meal or pay a bill with your credit card, somebody could copy down the number. Every time you give your card number over the phone, someone could be listening. Think how many people in the world know your card number? Hundreds probably! Why don’t they use that number to order loads of stuff by mail order? Because it would be easy to catch them by looking at the address on the packages and they’d go to jail! Here’s the really good bit, though. You wouldn’t have to pay, even if someone else did use your card fraudulently. So, in fact, a credit card is the safest way of ordering anything mail order, whether by phone, fax or on-line.
