PayPal Acceptance Mark

Please Note: You don't need to have a paypal account to make a purchase

This is one of the reasons we chose paypal as our sole merchant provider.
The other reasons we chose them are as follows:-

  1. Credit card security: When you sign up for a PayPal account, you type in the credit cards and bank accounts you wish to use for purchases one time on the PayPal secure system. Once that is accomplished, you never again have to disclose your credit card information online. By paying with PayPal, you keep your credit card information private, meaning that you can shop without worrying about a hacker downloading your account data from your online merchant.

  2. Global Reach: With more than 232 million accounts registered, PayPal permits the customers to send, hold and receive funds in 24 currencies worldwide in 190 markets.

  3. The PayPal BrandMany people are still hesitant when it comes to payment over the internet because they are not able to 'see' their cash moving and being accepted. The brand name that PayPal has, boosts customer confidence. Also, PayPal ensures that the webstore and vendor never get the credit card and bank account details of the customer. This adds to the trust

With PayPal now owned by Ebay you can be sure that they are reliable and customer focused as their repuation depands on this. We decided to use PayPal as our only payment provider as this reduces any complications on our checkout system. It means we can concentrate on developing our kits and courses and less on worrying about how purchase information is stored etc. PayPal takes care of all this for us.

Buying with confidence is important. There is probably no other company on the internet that handles the numbers of transactions that they handle. They have almost become the defacto standard way to purchase online. So we will be using PayPal until that situation changes.
