Extra security for credit card payments: 3D Secure for Visa and MasterCard
To ensure that your online credit card payment is as secure as possible, we use Verified by Visa and MasterCard® SecureCode™, internationally recognized authentication technology collectively known as 3D Secure. 3D Secure protects your credit cards against unauthorized use to minimize the risk of online credit card fraud.
If your card issuer participates in this program, you will be asked to enter an additional password to confirm your identity as the rightful cardholder. After entering your card details (step 2 - Payment) and submitting your order (step 3 - Review & Dispatch), you will be redirected to a page hosted by your card issuer where you can enter your password. If you are not yet registered for 3D Secure, you can do so free of charge in just a few steps during the online order process or contact your card issuer directly to register. Alternatively, you can select a different payment type. The password you select during the registration process is only known by you and your card issuer and is requested with every purchase.
What is the CSV/CVV security code?
The security code is the last 3 digits printed over the top of the signature field on the back of your MasterCard or VISA card. On American Express cards, the 4-digit security code is printed on the front of the card, to the right above your card number.
At Gaastra you also have the option to pay via PayPal, and can do so, without even creating a PayPal customer account. In order to do this, select PayPal as your preferred payment method during checkout, and at the end of the ordering process you will be directed to PayPal. If you are already a PayPal customer, you can log in with your user data and confirm the payment. However, if you are new to PayPal and would prefer not to create an account, then simply select the option ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?’ (highlighted below) and you can confirm the payment as a PayPal guest. Once the incoming payment is registered with us, your order will be processed. PayPal payments are usually confirmed within a few minutes.
If you send goods back, the amount will be credited to your PayPal account. You can then choose if you want to use the funds through your PayPal account directly, or wish to transfer the amount back to your bank or credit card account. We have no control over this, but you can manage it directly using your PayPal account.
Sofortbanking is an easy-to-use bank transfer process, which is based on the high security standards of Internet banking and monitored regularly for data security by the TÜV (Technical Inspection Authority). You do not need to register to use this payment method, nor do you need a credit card. You can pay simply and securely with your Internet bank account. All you need is your login details for Internet banking (ID and PIN) and a TAN number to confirm the transfer. As soon as your order has been placed, a secure payment form from Sofortbanking will open so that you can make the bank transfer from your Internet bank account. Once you have checked the details and confirmed the transfer, the money will be transferred to our bank account. This will speed up the process of checking and dispatching order.
