Card Payment Security

Our online card transactions are handled by Barclaycard Merchant Services ePDQ using their own secure servers, and they are responsible for the security of the transactions. Your personal card details are not retained on this Website.

Barclaycard Merchant Services utilise 128-bit SSL encryption, the same high standard as Internet banking, to process card transactions from this Website. Payment details are captured within Barclaycard Merchant Services' ePDQ secure infrastructure and therefore you can feel secure in the knowledge that the money is being transacted with the highest standards of encryption and being handled by one of the biggest, safest, most trusted names in banking.

What is it?

We participate in Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode for added online payment security. These services are offered by Visa and MasterCard, in association with the bank that has issued your credit / debit card. It is aimed at protecting your details when shopping online by ensuring your card is not being used by someone else and is becoming a standard across all shopping Web sites.

What will I see?

If your card qualifies and you haven’t yet registered, simply follow the onscreen instructions. This process will create an online code (different to your card PIN – an online PIN equivalent) for use on this and other participating Web sites.

This is a completely secure process. The information you provide is completely private, will only be visible to you and your card issuer, and would never be shared with other parties.
