to enter my card number online?
You can safely enter your entire credit card number via our secure
server, which encrypts all submitted information. If you prefer, we
also have a way for you to use your credit card without ever having to
enter the complete number on the Internet.
When filling out the order form, simply enter the last five digits
and the expiration date of your credit card on the order form. This
gives us a way to track your order but guarantees your security. Once
you have fully submitted your order, you will be provided with a phone
number so that you may provide us with the rest of your credit card
Please note, however, that this option is not available for orders
placed with Amazon Marketplace sellers.
Why did my credit card
It is not uncommon for a request for
credit card authorization to fail once or twice before the card is
finally authorized. We will send you an e-mail if we experience
difficulties in authorizing your credit card.
You are always welcome to submit new
credit card information to us for a particular order, provided that the
order has not yet entered the shipping process. To do this, visit Your Account
