I’m nervous about putting my credit card info into a website order form. Is it really safe to place an order on your website?

We understand that many people are still just now making their first purchases online and are still a little nervous about using their credit cards on the web. These days, online payment processors have advanced to the point that they are actually MORE secure than many other forms of payment.

In many ways, ordering online is actually a safer method of payment than giving out your CC info on the phone, etc where an actual human is going to have access to your info. With a secure online form, no human has access to your info, only the merchant bank.

Our merchant account uses SSL (secure socket layer) technology to protect your information from being viewed by any third parties. Even as the website owner myself, I don’t even have access to any credit card information that you input for the order. Only the bank processes the information.

Personally, I’ve purchased easily over 100 items online over the last 2-3 years on dozens of websites, and I’ve never once had an issue with security, nor has anyone I know, so it is definitely one of the safest methods of payment.
