4. PAYMENT

We offer our customers secure and convenient methods for making online payments through PayPal and Stripe. Both payment solutions use industry-leading security measures to ensure that your financial information is kept private.

Please note that you need a PayPal account to use our web shop. You may pay with your VISA, MasterCard, or American Express card.

One advantage of using the PayPal system is that refunds are processed instantly. If the PayPal payment was funded by a credit card, the money will be credited back to your card and, depending on the card issuer, may take up to four days before showing on your credit card statement. Refunds for transactions that were funded by bank account or PayPal balance are credited instantly to the customer’s PayPal account.

Additional information about the PayPal payment system may be found on the PayPal website.
