Secure Shopping


Online Security

We take website and credit card security seriously. We provide a safe and secure platform on which to conduct online transactions. uses the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts your information as it is transmitted over the internet. This encryption scrambles details such as credit card number, billing details and delivery address so that generally, other computers are unable to decipher the information, ensuring privacy and security.

To make sure you are accessing a secure server, check for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol located generally either at the bottom left, bottom right or top right of your browser window. If this appears, then SSL is active. You can double check this by looking at the URL as well. If SSL is active, then the first characters of that line will read 'https' rather than just 'http'. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Ensure that you logout when you have finished visiting especially if you are using a shared computer.

We make every effect to ensure that your shopping is secure. We use the premier payment solutions provider "Direct Payment Solutions" which is the only certified gateway to have seamless connectivity to every New Zealand Bank, the 4 majors in Australia and Citibank in Singapore. DPS develops software which processes credit card transactions, in real time. This direct connection checks the validity and availability of funds before your transaction is processed.

DPS evolved from CSD; the software development company which produced and certified several leading processing solutions, including the OCV Server, which was subsequently, licensed to Ingenico, ANZ and St George banks in Australia and PC Eftpos – the first integrated Windows POS / EFT-POS solution. In 2000 the PC EFTPOS technology was spun off in a multimillion-dollar deal to the ANZ bank and DPS replaced the legacy OCV Server with a next generation, zero hardware solution – Payment Express™. DPS provides a professional and secure e-commerce payment gateway facility that we trust.

Payment Express is a Visa and Mastercard certified solution that supports all forms of cards including Visa Debit issued under these schemes. At present we will not be accepting American Express or Diners cards.
