The Website does not store the Purchaser's credit card number, but thanks to the protected communication system of the banking institution, the Purchaser can, starting from the second order, dispense with the manual uploading of his/her data, but only after selecting the relevant option.

Customer identity and confidential data are protected. Immediate authorisation of payments reduces risk of fraud and charge-backs. With MyBank, trust and confidence in online transactions is increased.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. Select MyBank as your payment method and type the name of your bank. You are automatically directed to your own online banking portal.

2. Enter your familiar online banking access passwords to securely enter your account. Your payment details are automatically displayed for your verification.

Failing that, the order shall be cancelled and the goods will be made available for sale to other clients.

When a Purchaser fails to make the wire transfer, he/she may be contacted by Customer Service in order to ascertain whether the missing payment is due to the Purchaser's unwillingness to confirm the order or other reasons (e.g. bank error).
