Security is one of the most significant concerns for you (the shopper) and us (the retailer) during an online transaction. In reality though, an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop or conducted over the telephone or by fax, as the information transmitted online is strongly encrypted using complicated logarithm algorithms.
Secure Online Payment
For maximum security, we do not keep any of your payment details (credit card information etc.) on our system. This information is requested and processed in the secure confines of the e-commerce gateways we use, namely, Worldpay and Paypal.
Printree (the trading name for CreateOnline) operates globally and provides the ability to accept and settle payment in several currencies. The main currencies offered are British Pounds, Euros and American Dollars. If you have any questions please e-mail us at email@example.com.
We use the following e-commerce gateways for all our art print shops...
Worldpay accepts a number of credit and debit cards including: MasterCard, Visa, Visa Electron, Solo, Switch, Delta and JCB. The WorldPay payment system uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. Furthermore, WorldPay's public web servers are certified by Thawte, a public Certificate Authority, ensuring that both the shopper and retailer can have confidence that nobody can impersonate WorldPay to obtain confidential information.
The transfer of the purchase details from this Print-Shop to WorldPay are encapsulated using WorldPay's own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol. This uses a combination of standard methods such as PGP, RSA and MD5 to ensure that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof via SSL.
Worldpay send a confirmation email to you on completion of the successful transaction. WorldPay will NEVER ask you to provide confidential information (e.g. banking passwords etc) by email.
Paypal accepts (amongst others): MasterCard, Visa, Visa Electron, Solo, Switch, Delta, JCB and Amex or Paypal's own debit card.
Paypal has optimized their checkout experience by launching an exciting new improvement to their payment flow.
For new buyers, signing up for a PayPal account is now optional. This means you can complete your payment first, and then decide whether to save your information for future purchases.

Top Ten Tips for Online Safety
Following these simple steps allows you to shop online with confidence:
Don't hand over valuable card or bank account information to the fraudster. Don't give away your Personal Identification Number (PIN) or bank passwords to cold callers or in response to unsolicited emails - often known as Phishing scams.
Keep your cards and card details safe in the real world: Most Internet fraud happens because card details are stolen in the real world and used online, so keep them safe at all times.
Sign up whenever you are given the option whilst shopping online to Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. Increasingly when you go to pay online with your card you will be given the option of signing up to these schemes that involve you using a password. By signing up you will prevent a fraudster using your card details on participating sites as they will not know your password.
Only ever use a protected computer. Make sure your computer has up-to-date anti-virus software and a firewall installed.
Only shop at secure websites. Ensure that the security icon - the locked padlock or unbroken key symbol - is showing in the bottom of your browser window before sending your card details. The beginning of the retailer's Internet address will change from 'http' to 'https' when a purchase is made using a secure connection. Note: By double clicking on the padlock, you will see a confirmation that it is still valid.
Make sure your browser is set to the highest level of security notification and monitoring. The safety options are not always activated by default when you install your computer. The most popular browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer and Firefox. Check that you're using a recent version - you can usually download the latest version from your browsers' websites.
Always check your statements. Check statements as soon as you receive them. If you find a transaction on your statement that you did not make, contact your bank or card company immediately. Shred any documents that contain information relating to your financial affairs.
Consider using an Internet-only card. If you regularly make transactions over the Internet consider opening a separate credit card account specifically for these transactions. This will enable you to monitor transactions at a glance and credit cards offer additional consumer protection should anything go wrong.
Print out your order. When shopping online make sure you get a hard copy of both your order form and the retailer's terms and conditions. When buying from overseas remember that it may be difficult to seek redress if problems arise, but having all the relevant information will help your bank or building society take up the case if you have any problems.
