We have chosen PayPal to process payments through our website not only because it is it an extremely convenient way for customers with a PayPal account to pay for their purchases, but also because they offer one of the most secure payment platforms in the world. They use state of the art encryption to ensure that your details stay safe during online payment transactions. The even better news is that you don’t need a PayPal account to benefit from this!
During the checkout process you will be taken to PayPal to pay for the items in your cart (we never see or have access to your card details). Once there, if you click on the link ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?’ you can choose to checkout as a PayPal guest.
At this point you will be asked to enter your credit/debit card details just as you would when paying for goods from any online retailer. Your name, address and email information is also required, but this should be already be populated for you using the information you entered securely on our website at the start of the checkout process.
At the end, PayPal will also give you the option to create an account with them. Having a PayPal account will help to speed up your checkout process with us and any other online store offering PayPal as a payment option, but you can choose not to do this if you don’t want a PayPal account.
Once you’ve completed your payment you’ll be brought back to our website to confirm your order.
Please note: we have recently discovered that PayPal sets a limit on the number of times someone can use their guest checkout option. If this happens you will see an error message (possibly mentioning cookies but not actually mentioning the real problem!) and you will be unable to complete checkout unless you open a PayPal account. We sincerely apologize if this happens to you. We are in the process of arranging a new card payment system which will remove this problem but in the meantime, if it happens to you please get in touch and we will do our best to still fulfill your order.
