Secure Payment Methods

We have chosen to partner with Authorize.Net for our standard credit card transactions within our website.  Authorize.Net is uncompromising when it comes to providing merchants with secure, trustworthy payment gateway services. For receiving and transmitting customer payment information, Authorize.Net implements the most advanced Internet security protocols including 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). On top of that, Authorize.Net consistently employs an extensive number of strong practices, procedures, and industry-leading technologies to maintain tight security for the entire payment gateway platform. We also maintain compliance with high quality security programs developed by the card associations, such as Visa Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and MasterCard Site Data Protection (SDP); and are continually investing time and money to maximize the security surrounding the payment gateway.


PaylPal offers our customer three ways of purchasing our products.  By logging into (or creating a PayPal account) you will be able to purchase by way of:

  1. Standard Credit Card                                      
  2. Your Personal PayPal Bank Account               
  3. Finance Through Bill Met Later                                                             

The PayPal site is highly secure. PayPal uses industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, PayPal’s server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

What Makes the PayPal Site So Secure?

  • Technology
    State-of-the-art fraud models and proprietary fraud engine work together to help stop fraudulent transactions before they happen. In addition, PayPal stays at the forefront of security, developing many anti-fraud technologies every year.
  • Experience
    With PayPal, you've got the industry's most experienced fraud team on your side. PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year, allowing us to continually perfect our anti-fraud protections. As a result, PayPal's loss rate is significantly lower than the industry average. We also work with federal law enforcement to catch criminals.
  • Privacy
    PayPal is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. When you send or request money using PayPal, recipients never see your bank account numbers or credit card numbers. They only see your email address, date of sign-up, and whether or not you have completed PayPal's Verification process.
