Paypal - the secure online payment system


Paypal allows instant payment by credit or debit card

Paypal is a secure payment platform that allows you to pay for goods instantly using almost any bank card. Linked to our shopping cart, customers can choose the items they wish to purchase, then proceed direct from the shopping cart to the Paypal secure payment system.

When arriving at the secure Paypal payment site the items you have selected will be displayed along with the total amount payable. You then have the choice to either :
  • Log in using a existing Paypal account (if you have one)
  • Create an account
    • You can then enter you credit or debit card information, along with your billing and delivery address
    • You can choose to also create a Paypal account or not. Creating an account is free and gives additional payment protections
Payments by Paypal are generally instantaneous, so as soon as your order and payment is received, your items will be packaged ready to be dispatched to you at the earliest opportunity.

Paypal is a secure and rapid way of ordering and paying for goods. We recommend this method of payment because it is very secure (it is one of the worlds largest payment platforms) and because your goods can be dispatched as soon as you order, allowing for a more rapid delivery than Bank Transfers which can take several or more before a payment arrives.

We understand that some customers may be hesitant about using this payment method, so we have documented some of the major benefits below to help explain the system. More information regarding the Paypal secure payment system is available at

About Paypal

Founded in 1998, Paypal is now one of the world's largest and most trusted online payment systems.

Paypal was developed to allow the customers of internet businesses to make secure purchases simply and easily. Paypal is free for those purchasing goods, and gives purchasers added protection as well as a dispute resolution service. Customers paying for goods with paypal can have confidence that their purchase is protected and that their transaction is safe.

Here are some of the main advantages that purchasers receive by using paypal :

The Cost

PayPal is free for purchasers. Customers using PayPal receive all the benefits associated with the service at no cost. Additionally there are no credit card charges.

Buyer protection

Paypal's 'Buyer protection' gives customers a structured complaint resolution process should a problem arise with their transaction. This means that paypal offers significantly more protection than most credit cards.

If you have a problem with your transaction then paypal will help you to resolve it. If you notify paypal that there is a problem, they will put a temporary hold on the funds relating to your payment until the issue is resolved. Paypal will investigate the complaint until a resolution is reached.

Credit card security

When you Pay for goods using PayPal, your credit card information is not given to the online merchant. As none of your credit card information is held by the seller, it cannot be 'hacked' on their website.

Fraud prevention

If you have a paypal account, then like most good banks, Paypal monitors transactions around the clock to help protect you from fraudulent transactions against your account.

No paypal account necessary

Although many people now have authorised paypal accounts, many do not. Paypal allows purchasers to pay for their purchases either by using their paypal account, or by securely entering there card details
