Your transaction will take place within a secure payment system. This uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, a standard supported by major internet browsers. All of your personal and card details are protected using 128 bit encryption, when transmitted over the Internet. In order for a transaction to take place securely your browser must support 128 bit encryption.
Security features have been added our Online Payments facility to provide you with the latest technology to help combat potential fraud. These are Card Security Code (CSC) and Verisecure with VISA and Mastercard.
CSC – the person making the payment is prompted to enter the 3 or 4 digit number on the reverse of the card. This number is then verified against the details held by the card issuing bank.
Verisecure – customers pre-register their card with a password with the card issuer and when the card is used with an accredited site the customer is prompted to enter the password to complete the transaction.
Simply follow the instructions on the payment pages.
