One of the major benefits of a payment card or credit card (any card with a Visa or Mastercard symbol should work, including most debit cards that banks issue) is that card payments over the Internet are far, far more secure than exchanging bank details via email.
Our web store processes the following cards: VISA, Mastercard, DISCOVER, American Express and JCB. A number of country and region specific payment options are also available:
- Amazon Pay (United States)
- Giropay (popular in Germany)
- iDEAL (popular in the Netherlands)
- Sofort (popular in Germany, and gaining popularity in other EU countries)
- WebMoney (popular in Russia)
- Alipay (popular in China; USD and CNY currencies supported)
We can also process payments via wire transfer and Purchase Order.
The First Priority: Security
Visa, Mastercard, and others have put in place robust security checks and measures. For example, Internet transactions on our Web Store and any reputable online store ensures data is encrypted, which prevents others from capturing the data illegally. We strongly advise against ever sending your bank details to anyone without knowing the recipient very well, and encrypting the file with the bank information in. Unencrypted email is simply not a good communications medium to send sensitive data.
Banks are generally happy to limit the amount that can be drawn on a given card, and you may in future decide to have a very low limit on the card you use for Internet transactions. That way you can easily see on that particular card statement, who the money has been paid out to, and you'll also rest assured no one can ever go for an unauthorized spending spree.
The other popular way of exchanging money is with the payment exchange system PayPal. You authorize PayPal to pay on your behalf. Our web store accepts PayPal payments.
Note that our web store delivers Serial Numbers immediately both via an order confirmation web page and a confirmation email.
