FAQ - Ordering and Payment

How do I place an order?

See the full list of ordering and payment options available to you on our ordering concerns page.

How secure are my credit card details?

When you place an on-line credit card order via our shopping cart, your card details will be collected by secure connection and stored on a secure server. From there, we collect the details of the order by secure connection directly into our computers. We also accept credit card orders by fax or telephone if your prefer those methods. See what methods are available on our ordering concerns page.

All payments are processed by Dudley or Dehlia Dix personally, from collection from the secure server right through to processing with the merchant bank.

At no time are your details sent over open email, which is when they are at risk of being hijacked.

We will not pass on your card details to any other party for any purposes.
