This site bills in US Dollars, however, you may change the currency option to show the estimated value in alternative currencies. The final billed amount may vary slightly due to currency variations between our system and the payment processor (PayPal). The difference may be a few cents in either direction. We are not responsible for foreign currency bank charges or differences between the estimated value and the final billed amount in your currency.
Is My Money Safe?
Whether you choose to pay via debit card, credit card, charge card or PayPal, all payments are transacted using PayPal as the payment processor. As merchants, PayPal requires us to meet strict PCI DSS standards at all times. This ensures your financial confidentiality. Payment is taken when you place your order. Your payment is protected by PayPal's Resolution Process, which reserves part of our revenues in case of dispute.
Some banks have a default decline on overseas payments. As we are based in the UK, if this occurs you may need to telephone your bank to give authorization for the payment. If more convenient, you may try another form of payment. If you are having difficulties completing the payment process, please contact us.
Can I Use American Express?
For online payments, American Express can be used via the PayPal system (you do not require a PayPal account). Please select PayPal as the payment option at the checkout and follow the prompts for non-PayPal account payments.
We are unable to accept American Express for telephone orders/payments.
Are My Personal Details Safe?
We do not store credit card details. During the on-line checkout procedure, we have no access to your credit or debit card numbers. In the case of telephone orders, any paper records of credit or debit card numbers are safely destroyed immediately after electronic verification.
