    Secure ordering with PayPal & Thawte

    Monday, 23 January 2012  |  Colin

    At Accessory Fair we have put in place the latest industry security measures to ensure that there can be no unauthorised access to the credit card information entered on our site.

    We use the Website Payments Standard system from PayPal, one of the largest and most trusted payment processing companies in the world, to process the financial transaction between us and your credit card company. Our checkout is securely hosted by PayPal and provides fraud, card verification, and address checks along with 128-bit encryption.

    We also use a Thawte 256-bit SSL Certificate to ensure that any data sent during the account creation process is securely encrypted. This process of encryption prevents unauthorised individuals from viewing your information as it is securely transmitted over the internet.

    Please note that, here at Accessory Fair, we never see your credit card details, and they are never stored on our systems. All of this information is handled securely between the payment processor and your credit card company – we only get told when your payment has been approved. We believe that this is the most secure method of handling your credit card information.

    If you would like any more information about the measure we have taken to secure your credit card details, please see our Secure Online Shopping page.
